Sample text

Alice begins getting smaller, to the point where she is only ten-inches high. She is happy when she stops shrinking as she was afraid that she might Then, she scolds herself for crying. Usually, Alice is able to give herself good advice. One time, however, she scolded herself so severely that she began to cry. On another occasion, Alice boxes her own ears for cheating at croquet. She was playing against herself on that occasion. Alice is often fond of pretending to be two people. ” This reasoning, like most of Alice’s postulations, is in error.

As she said this she looked down at her hands, and was surprised to see that she had put on one of the Rabbit’s little white kid gloves while she was talking. ” she thought. ” She got up and went to the table to measure herself by it, and found that, as nearly as she could guess, she was now about two feet high, and was going on shrinking rapidly: she soon found out that the cause of this was the fan she was holding, and she dropped it hastily, just in time to avoid shrinking away altogether.

On various pretexts they all moved off, and Alice was soon left alone. ” she said to herself in a melancholy tone. “Nobody seems to like her, down here, and I’m sure she’s the best cat in the world! Oh, my dear Dinah! ” And here poor Alice began to cry again, for she felt very lonely and low-spirited. In a little while, however, she again heard a little pattering of footsteps in the distance, and she looked up eagerly, half hoping that the Mouse had changed his mind, and was coming back to finish his story.
