PUBLISHERS' NOTE

This little book was originally published under the title

Saturday Mornings ,

but there has been some criticism of that title because it is not sufficiently descriptive of the contents of the book. The Publishers, consequently, have thought it wise in the present edition to change the title to

A Little Housekeeping Book for a Little Girl

OR

MARGARET'S SATURDAY MORNINGS.

This change has the advantage also of making the title uniform with the other titles in the series

A Little Cook Book for a Little Girl ,

A Little Sewing Book for a Little Girl, etc.

Thanks are due the editor of Good Housekeeping for permission to reproduce the greater part of this book from the serial in that magazine.

But this Christmas everybody said these things twice as often as usual, and Margaret wondered about it.

"Mother," she said one day, "if you were a little girl and every one said 'Run away, now,' over and over, twice as many times as other Christmases, what would you think?"
