|There once lived a gentleman and his wife, who were the parents of a lovely little daughter. When this child was only nine |
|years of age, her mother fell sick. Finding her death coming on, she called her child to her and said to her, "My child, |
|always be good; bear every thing that happens to you with patience, and whatever evil and troubles you maysuffer, you will be|
|happy in the end if you are so." Then the poor lady died, and her daughter was full of great grief at the loss of a mother so |

|When her work wasdone, she used to sit in the chimney-corner amongst the cinders, which had caused the nickname of |
|"Cinderella" to be given her by the family; yet, for all her shabby clothes, Cinderella was a hundred times prettier than her |
|sisters, let them be dressed ever so magnificently. |
|The poor little Cinder-wench!this harsh stepmother was a sore trial to her; and how often, as she sate sadly by herself, did |
