An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice"

Sunrise over an island in Penobscot Bay from the deck of the Angelique.

This Easter sun will rise on you, dear child, feeling your "life in every limb," and eager to rush out into the fresh morning air---and many an Easter-day will come and go, before it finds you feeble and gray-headed, creeping wearily out to bask once more in the sunlight---but it is good, even now, to think sometimes of that great morning when the "Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings."
Lewis Carroll
Easter, 1876

Happy Easter
