--ABOUT THIS ITEM--
After his mother's death Andy, who has passed all of his short life in Chicago, sets out in company with Jeremiah, his pet rabbit, for the home of his only living relative, Uncle David Fanshawe, of Edgewater, Massachusetts. The ride on the train is long and tedious, and the fact that neither of the young travelers have eaten anything, that they are both tired, forlorn, and travel-stained, makes it a very pathetic little pair that trudge along the country road to Rosemount. As they approach the great estate which, in Andy's life heretofore, has existed only in hearsay, the little boy's mind is filled with many misgivings. Years ago David Fanshawe had bitterly opposed the marriage of his sister Alice, Andy's mother. Since the event, he had never written to her. It is this that made the little boy's welcome of indeed a doubtful character. Nevertheless, Andy approaches Rosemount with courageous heart, across its lawns, and beneath its tall shade trees. But even more than his bravery and lovable nature, it is friendship of Rex, the great shepherd dog, that gains for Andy a welcome to the home of his ancestors.
