"Self-Denial,
or Alice Wood and Her Missionary Society" #
by American Sunday School Union
[children's fiction, Christian (Protestant)]
(free Kindle book)
I would have liked this better if there had
been more "story" to it; if the author had
actually SHOWN the girls working to earn
money, struggling with temptation, and so on.

"Mildred Keith"

 {carrying over into next week}
by Martha Finley
[children's fiction, Christian (Protestant)]

"Screwball"

"Russell Sprouts" #
by Johanna Hurwitz
[children's fiction]
(quick read)

"The American Frugal Housewife"
by Mrs. Child (Lydia Maria  Child) 
Twelfth Edition, Enlarged and
corrected by the author 
She had to add the word "American" to
the title because there was a book by the 
same name published in England.
