A TRIP FOR CHESTNUTS
Roxie V. Runion, 12
One fine day last summer some of my friends and I went for
We started in the morning about nine oclock. On our way we had
to cross a river in a boat. We had large paddles with which to make the boat go. When we
got across we tied our boat.
It was dinner when we got to the Cold Spring, then we put our dinner
out on a large rock, which lay close by the spring, and ate our dinner. Then we started on
up the mountain and got our Chestnuts. We each got about one quart.
We came to the Cold Spring and got a good fresh drink of water. Then we came down to the
river and got our boat and all got in it and started across the river.
When we got home it was evening.
