The One Room House It was in the littlest house in Ne York that Glory lived, with grandpa and Bosn, the dog, so she, and its owner, often boasted; and whether this were actually true or not, it certainly was so small that no other sort of tenant than the blind captain could have bestowed himself, his grandchild, and their few belongings in it.
