Milly-Molly-Mandy Goes Errands

From Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories (1928)

SUMMARY: Milly-Molly-Mandy fetches a trowel for Father, eggs for Mother, string for Grandpa, red wool for Grandma, chicken-feed for Uncle and needles for Aunty.

In this first story, Milly-Molly-Mandy calls her parents 'Muvver' and 'Farver', an affectation which continues intermittently throughout this volume but is dropped in subsequent stories, largely because she ceases to name them in speech altogether.
