Lady Liberty

Extracts from this document...


LADY LIBERTY It was 1885 in New York City. A little boy named Frederick Bloomsmen was hurrying down the streets to get to his master's shop. "Mayhap if I hurry, I'll get to see Lady Liberty," Frederick thought. But as he ran along, he heard the town clock strike 6:00. "Oh no! I've got to make haste!" Frederick said desperately. Frederick had been delivering a saddle to the cart builder and had spent too long talking to the cart builder's son. Slam! The door to his master's store opened and shut as Frederick ran in. "Where have you been??" Mr. Ezra (for that was Frederick's master's name) roared. "Delivering the saddle, sir, just as you asked me to," Frederick answered timidly. ...read more.

As Frederick did so, his eyebrows slid up as his mouth went down. For there, beautifully arranged in a pile of white tissue paper, sat the figurine of Lady Liberty! Frederick felt dizzy with happiness as he left the shop. Mama's birthday came just as quickly as Frederick's had. Frederick re-wrapped Mama's birthday present. When the time came for her to open it, her mouth dropped in surprise. "Why Frederick, where did you get this?" she asked in bewilderment, "It's beautiful! I absolutely love it!
