THE LITTLE WHITE BIRD
I. David and I Set Forth Upon a Journey
Sometimes the little boy who calls me father brings me an invitation
from his mother: "I shall be so pleased if you will come and see me,"
and I always reply in some such words as these: "Dear madam, I decline."
And if David asks why I decline, I explain that it is because I have no
desire to meet the woman.
"Come this time, father," he urged lately, "for it is her birthday, and
she is twenty-six," which is so great an age to David, that I think he
fears she cannot last much longer.
