"Grandfather, " said little Alice, laying her head back upon his arm, "I am very tired now. You must tell me a story to make me go to sleep." "That is not what story-tellers like, " answered Grandfather, smiling." They are better satisfied when they can keep their auditors awake." (Grandfather's Chair)
