Toddlekins and Trot by Anna M. Pratt

“Dear Toddlekins,” said little Trot,“May I talk to you a while?”“Why, yeth, of courthe,” said Toddlekins,With a bashful little smile.
“Now, Toddlekins,” said little Trot,“If we should meet a bear”——“Good graciouth me!” said Toddlekins,“You give me thuch a thcare!”
“If we should meet a bear,” said Trot,“Would you let me save your life?”“Oh merthy! Yeth!” said Toddlekins,“But I will not be your wife!”
