It was published in 1783 and for the next 150 years was the elementary spelling book for little ones. Mr. Webster's... Sign in to see full entry.

It Usually Works

Goodness Gracious! He's downright loquacious, and how do I get him to cease? With mental telepathy I send him my empathy, "...but it's time to go home if you please!" Sign in to see full entry.
