Christmas wont be Christmas without any presents, grumbled Jo, lying on the rug. Its so dreadful to be poor! sighed Meg, looking down at her old dress.

Weve got Father and Mother, and each other, said Beth contentedly from her corner.

Right, Jo; better be happy old maids than unhappy wives, or unmaidenly girls, running about to find husbands, said Mrs March decidedly.
