Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XL ON THE WAY TO THE BEEBES. "T'M going down to see dear Mr. Beebe and dear A Mrs. Beebe," cried Elyot suddenly the next morning; and he threw down the small trowel with which he had been spatting his mud-pie into shape, and jumped up, "Come along, Barby, you may go too," he said. "We won't trouble anybody to take us, 'cause they're all busy. I know the way."
