Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted orfrightened or hungry; for all that will be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share theblessings of the merciful.

They were finished at last, and Laura took them off to the kitchen. She found Jose there pacifying the cook, who did not look at all terrifying.
"Good morning," she said, copying her mother's voice. But that sounded so fearfully affected that she was ashamed, and stammered like a little girl, "Oh - er - have you come - is it about the marquee?"
"Where do you want the marquee put, mother?"
Oh, to be away from this! She actually said, "Help me, God," as she walked up the tiny path and knocked. To be away from those staring eyes, or to be covered up in anything, one of those women's shawls even. I'll just leave the basket and go, she decided. I shan't even wait for it to be emptied.
"You'll have to go, Laura; you're the artistic one."
- The horror of "Foie gras" pate: The following is a quotefrom the PETA website, explaining how Foie gras is obtained: "Foie gras is produced by force-feeding ducks and geese. A long, inflexible pipe is shoved down their throats three times a
day and several pounds of feed are pumped into their stomachs, causing their livers to become diseased and swollen. Many experience severely lacerated necks and ruptured internal organs because of the intense pressure and extremely rough handling. The stress and pain often result in the birds being unable to walk and having to resort to moving themselves over the wire cage floors by pushing with their wings". I say we can all live without Foie gras! Let's never be partners in thiskind of crime!
"Well, what about the lily-lawn? Would that do?"
- If you do consume eggs, be sure to buy organic eggs, for the same reasonscited above. Chickens raised for the productions of eggs at non-organicfarms are often keptin "factory like" facilities, and all too often in very inhumane conditions,stuffed into in battery cages, with no regard for them being living creatures(as described by senator Robert Byrd).

Laura was terribly nervous. Tossing the velvet ribbon over her shoulder, she said to a woman standing by, "Is this Mrs. Scott's house?" and the woman, smiling queerly, said, "It is, my lass."

No, too late. This was the house. It must be. A dark knot of people stood outside. Beside the gate an old, old woman with a crutch sat in a chair, watching. She had her feet on a newspaper. The voices stopped as Laura drew near. The group parted. It was as though she was expected, as though they had known she was coming here.
