When we last saw our heroine she was thanking her hostesses for the lovely party and telling them how much she would miss them when she journeyed off to her new home…

Now the time has come for Billie’s Doll to pack her bags and begin her travels westward to the heart-land. I will miss her!

No Hittys live at my house, but fortunately I happened to have a post card from my visit to see the real Hitty that is part of the Stockbridge, MA library collection.

Today was such a nice day that she decided to take one more walk in the woods, to gather a few autumn leaves for her scapebook...
