Subject: How many shoes?
A truly charming story. However it is somewhat noticeable that the text of the book differs from the picture titled "The Orphans" (page 4) in describing their shoes. The picture shows the brother as having no shoes and Margery as having only one, whereas the text says the brother has two shoes and Margery none at all.

Subject: Wonderful book
Very useful for education; a kind of Cinderella but far more useful for children education. I think they will like this book even today.

“Goody Two Shoes” was published in April 1765, and few nursery books have had a wider circulation, or have retained their position so long. The number of editions that have been published both in England and America is legion, and it has appeared in mutilated versions under the auspices of numerous publishing houses in London and the provinces, although of late years there have been no new issues. Even in 1802, Charles Lamb in writing to Coleridge, said–

“"Goody Two Shoes” is almost out of print. Mrs Barbauld’s stuff has
banished all the old classics of the nursery, and the shopman at
Newbery’s hardly deigned to reach them off an old exploded corner of
a shelf, when Mary asked for them. Mrs Barbauld’s and Mrs Trimmer’s
nonsense lay in piles about. Knowledge, insignificant and vapid as Mrs
Barbauld’s books convey, it seems must come to a child in the shape of
knowledge; and his empty noddle must be turned with conceit of his own
powers when he has learnt that a horse is an animal, and Billy is
better than a horse, and such like, instead of that beautiful interest
in wild tales, which made the child a man, while all the time he
suspected himself to be no bigger than a child. Science has succeeded
to poetry no less in the little walks of children than with men. Is
there no possibility of averting this sore evil? Think what you would
have been now, if instead of being fed with tales and old wives’
fables in childhood, you had been crammed with geography and natural

“Hang them!–I mean the cursed Barbauld crew, those blights and blasts
of all that is human in man and child."[B]

There must, however, be many parents still living who remember the delight that the little story gave them in their younger days, and they will, no doubt, be pleased to see it once more in the form which was then so familiar to them. The children of to-day, too, will look on it with some curiosity, on account of the fact that it is one of the oldest of our nursery tales, and amused and edified their grand-parents and great grand-parents when they were children, while they cannot fail to be attracted by its simple, pretty, and interesting story.

These where the types of stories my Grandmother would recite to me as a child. Simple and good read for the children.

Good bedtime story.
