‘This diminutive merry-go-round appeared on the scene, drawn upon a flat waggon, at one of the many days in the country which the Fresh Air and Sunshine Funds of the well-to-do provide for children of the city poor. Don’t the little ones look happy? Even the man who turns the handle looks as though he enjoyed his labour. We take this opportunity of thanking our generous readers for their kind gifts which enable us to give many a dear little child a frolic in the country.’
