The Baby in the House. By Poventry Catmore, Author of 'Angel in the House', &c.,



Poetry, Drollery


Medical Practitioners, Human Development, Nutrition

    Includes a doctor's warm response to a new-born baby, a child that considered him 'jolly raw', but then the doctor 'viewed the crimson thing, / And listened to its doleful squeal, / And rather wished the nurse would bring / The pap-boat with its earliest meal'.
