HISTORY OF LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD.
I bANY years ago, there liv-d a sweet-tempered little girl, whose parents loved .......

1 J her dearly, but. her grandmother quite doated on her; she made her a pretty
red-coloured hood, which so became the child, that she was called LITTLE RED
RIDING HOOD. One day her mother having made some cheesecakes, said to her, Your
grandmother is ill. I fear; carry her this pot of butter and a few cheesecakes; but ''
mind, do not stop to talk to any one on your road there.
Delighted with her errand. Little Red Riding Hood set out for her grandmother's
cottage; and as she was crossing a wood, which lay in her road, she met a Wolf, who
had a great mind to eat her, but dared not, because ot some wood-cutters, who were at

dangerous it was to talk to a Wolf. she said I am going to see my grandmother. and

a' said the W0'olI I will go too: let us ste which will be there first."
CM ^Away went the Wolf at full speed. taking the nearest road ; but the little girl
amused herself with gathering some wild flowers which grew in the wood, and making
them up into a pretty nosegay for her graudmother, who she knew was lery fond of'

.there first, soon arrived at the cottage of Red Riding Hood's grandmother, and knocked-
at the door. Who is there." asked the Grandmother. It is your grandchild. Red
Riding Hood," said the Wolf. imitating her voice; Mother has sent you some cees- .
cakes and a pot of fresh butter."
Thie good old :oman. who was ill in bed. called out. Pull the bobbin and the door
will ..ien." Accordingly, the Wolf opened the do..r and entered the cottage, where he
founi all very quiet; so he softly closed the dour after lim, and stealthily crept
towards the bed. where the good old lady was lying, for she was too unwell to rise and
dress herself that morning.
Alas poor old woman, instead of beholding a tender-hearted, dutiful grandchild, it f
was a ravenous Wolf, who, who not having, tasted any food for three days, sprang upon
her, and ate her up. He then tried to put the room a little in order, that Red Riding
iHood might not see the tliinzs in confusion: and then he put on the old lady's night-
c\,eap and bed-gown. and got into bed, to wait for the little girl's arrival.
While he laid there, he listened to every sound that broke the silence, for he thought
. that every footstep must be that of Little Red Riding Hood. At last he felt rather
Sdrowsy after his hearty meal. and would have goue to sleep. but tear of any stranger
coming to the cottage kept him awake.
In about an hour Red Ridingl Hood came. and gently tapped two or three times at
the door. Who is there ? said the W\olf. She replied, supposing it was her grand-
mother who spoke. It is me,-your own Little Red Riding Hood. Mother has .ent
you some cheesecakes and a pot of nice butter." The Wolf. softening his voice as much
as he could. said, "Pull the bobbin, and the door will open." Having pulled the

bobbin, Red Riding Hood went into the house, when the Wolf said. Put the basket
down. my child, and come into bed to me, for you must be very tired."
Yes. I will. grandmother." said the poor innocent, "as soon as I have put these
pretty flowers, which I have gathered for you. into the pots. See. dear grandmother,
how nicely I have decorated your chimney-piece." said the artless little girl.
The Wolf'. however, declined looking at the flowers, pretending that his head ached
so sadly that he could not raise it.
"I am sorry you are so ill, and mother will be much grieved to hear it. Shall I
hand you some nice white cake? " No, thank you," answered the Wolf. I cannot
eat just now; I made a hearty meal just before you came."
Little Rlied Riding Hood then got into bed, and said, Grandmother, as I came along,

EI met a Wolf in the wood; at first I was frightened. but he spoke so kindly, that my
fears ended; I hope you are not angry with me for speaking to him." No, I am
quite pleased," said the Wolf.
Little Red Riding Hood thought her grandmother looked very much altered, so she
said, How rough and long your arms have grown !" The better to fondle you with,
my dear." '" How your ears stand up The better to hear your sweet voice, my
love." How large and bright your eyes are, Grandmother!" The better to gaze
upon you. my love." But how huge and frightful your teeth are!" "All the
better to devour you with." And he sprang upon the child and ate her up. The cruel
Wolf did not long survive; for, falling asleep, he was discovered by Red Riding Hood's
father, who instantly got assistance from the wood-cutters, and killed him.
