The honey-comb: or, Nine-months
By Ruth Van Saun

Then my vision anew carries me to grandmother's cookie-jar, that dear old brown jar that never was empty.

"In a dim old country pantry where the light just sifted through, Where they kept the pies and spices and the jam and honey, too, Where the air was always fragrant with the smell of things to eat And the coolness was a refuge from the burning summer heat; It was there I used to find it, when I went to help myself— The old Cookie Jar a-setting underneath the pantry shelf. Talk of manna straight from heaven, why, it isn't on a par With those good old-fashioned cookies from my Mother's Cookie Jar."
