1902 - The book begins: My name is Katherine Lawson and I am eleven years old. My brother, who calls me Kit, is a year older than I. He is named James and often tries to be a good boy. I call him Jim just as he calls me Kit. Of course we are well acquainted enough for that. My father's given name is Robert and my mother's name is Frances. They seem to me the best father and mother in the world, but I suppose other children think the same way of their own. I only know this, that we are an awfully happy family, even if Jim and I do have hard work in being really good. Jim says it is so easy to fall down.
