Alice meets the Black Knight and the Channing Mouse
ALICE gave a little scream of delight when she came in sight of Harvard Square.
"Now I know where I am," she said to herself. "I can tell by that—that—well, that big round thing in the middle. I declare! I do believe I have forgotten its name," she went on. "I wonder if I can remember my own. Let's see—is it Mabel? No. It must be Bertha. No, that's not right either. I know it began with an L. Oh dear, I really have forgotten it. What shall I do!"
Here Alice began to cry. You must remember she was a very little girl, and had never forgotten her name before.
"Come, come," said a voice, "don't cry. We have had enough rain lately."
