24 Brownie Stories, among them: The Brownies' Snow-Man, in the Orchard, Yacht Race, Niagara Falls, Dancing School, Locomotive etc. Brownies on the Canal seems to be the story of how the Brownies addressed a work stoppage in a labor dispute on the Erie Canal. "... We lack the might/ To set the wrongs of labor right,/But by the power within us placed/ We'll see that nothing goes to waste." This second book used stories previously appearing in Wide Awake, St. Nicholas and the Ladies' Home Journal, when the little people were well known and loved by children, but before the Brownies became an advertising fixture. We have both The Brownies and Another Brownie Book once belonging to Mary Bland Robertson of New Jersey (b. 1895, m Edward Ingersoll Brown); we would prefer to keep the books together. Please inquire.
