Mary's father was a sea captain. He took long trips across the ocean in his ship. From her window Mary waved good-by when he sailed away, and she waved hello to him when came sailing back. Six times he came back with a doll for Mary, so she had six dolls from six different countries. One for each day of the week but Sunday. A dollmaker crafts a seventh doll for her and she must wait for seven days for her new doll to be finished. Oh, will it be a surprise!
