NEW 2-3 Lesson III: Willie's Letter. - McGuffey's Second Eclectic Primer (revised edition)

Lesson III.

rub'ber ... gun ... par'lor ... street ... num'ber ... ten ... o'clock ... shoot

Willie's Letter.
New York, Dec. 10, 1878.
Dear Santa Claus:
Papa is going to give me
a Christmas tree, and he says that
you will put nice things on it if I ask you.  
I would like a gun that will shoot,
and a rubber ball that I can throw hard,
and that will not break Mamma's windows
or the big glass in the parlor.
Now, please don't forget to come. 
I live on Fourth St., number ten.
I will go to bed at eight o'clock,
and shut my eyes tight.
I will not look indeed I won't.
Your little boy

McGuffey's Second Eclectic Reader Lessons


1. It is winter.  The cold wind whistles through the branches of the trees.

2. Mr. Brown has done his day's work, and his children, Harry and Kate, have come home from school.  They learned their lessons well to-day, and both feel happy.

3. Tea is over.  Mrs. Brown has put the little sitting room in order.  The fire burns brightly.  One lamp gives light enough for all.  On the stool is a basket of fine apples.  They seem to say, "Won't you have one?"

4. Harry and Kate read a story in a new book.  The father reads his newspaper, and the mother mends Harry's stockings.

5. By and by, they will tell one another what they have been reading about, and will have a chat over the events of the day.

6. Harry and Kate's bedtime will come first.  I think I see them kiss their dear father and mother a sweet good night.

7. Do you not wish that every boy and girl could have a home like this?
