A Victorian Christmas Advent Calendar: 17th December

In the holidays

“Away they went, helter-skelter! Tom and Joe, Bob and Dick, and Harry Price from Blackberry Farm, and Bessie, the lodge-keeper’s little daughter, shouting and laughing, past the mill and over the turnip-field, for school had broken up, and they had a whole month’s holiday to look forward to.”
From ‘In the holidays’ by Graham Clifton Bingham, in ‘The Daisy Chain Library’ (classmark 1891.6.246-251)
