Long ago, these twins, Adeline and Adelaide, belonged to the Presbyterian pastor’s daughter. The girl had two sisters, Stella and Elizabeth. Each sister had a doll. The three little sisters and their dolls used to have fun together under the giant oak trees in their yard.
There was a large rear of the house. The loft was filled with sweet-smelling hay. A cat and her five cats lived in the hayloft. Occasionally, the mother cat made a habit of joining the group gathered around the doll’s tea table. But she never brought the cats.
