Barrie, J. M. (n.d.). Alice Sitbythefire. Retrieved from

Excerpt: As you are to be shown Amy?s room, we are permitted to describe it, though not to tell (which would be much more interesting) why a girl of seventeen has, as her very own, the chief room of a house. The moment you open the door of this room (and please, you are not to look consciously at the escritoire as if you knew the diary was in it) you are aware, though Amy may not be visible, that there is an uncommonly clever girl in the house. The door does not always open easily, because attached thereto is a curtain which frequently catches in it, and this curtain is hand?sewn (extinct animals); indeed a gifted woman?s touch is everywhere; if you are not hand?sewn you are almost certainly hand?painted, but incompletely, for Amy in her pursuit of the arts has often to drop one in order to keep pace with another. Some of the chairs have escaped as yet, but their time will come. The table?cover and the curtains are of a lovely pink, perforated ingeniously with many tiny holes.
