"I'm not a bit afraid anymore"

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Lessie was a very timid girl, afraid of so many things: of the dark, storms, loud voices, strange people, even of the great dog that lived next door and ran out to bark at her.

One day word came that her Aunt Luella, whom she had never seen, was coming to visit. Aunt Luella had a pleasant low voice and a happy smile; and as she went about the house helping Lessie's mother, she had a comfortable way of humming softly to herself or of sitting down at the piano and singing happy songs, which she said were from the Christian Science Hymnal.
