Excerpt
Excerpt: In February, 1876, we were living in Paris, a little family of four my mother, my sister Isobel, whom I considered as grownup, though she was but a few years older than myself, my brother Hervey, and I. I was eight; Hervey, a lovely little fellow with long golden curls, was five. We were miserably poor; it seems to me that I was always hungry; I can remember yet how I used to glue myself to the bakers' windows and stare longingly at the bread within. Then my little brother fell ill of a lingering and baffling ailment; nobody knew what the matter with him was; for weeks he lay dying while my mother pawned her trinkets to buy him delicacies and toys.
