Spyri, Johanna: Uncle Titus and His Visit to the Country. v1. 27 Aug 2014
Johanna Spyri (German: [joˈhana ˈʃpiːri]; 12 June 1827 – 7 July 1901) was a Swiss-born author of children's stories, and is best known for her book Heidi. Born Johanna Louise Heusser in the rural area of Hirzel, Switzerland, as a child she spent several summers in the area around Chur in Graubünden, the setting she later would use in her novels.
On the east side of the city of Karlsruhe there is a lovely park and under the shade of its linden trees a gentleman slowly paced back and forth every afternoon. The other promenaders always glanced at him in sympathy as he passed by, for it touched their hearts to see how his little companion strove to help him along. Certainly he must be very ill, he walked so very slowly, and although he always leaned heavily on a strong cane which he carried in his right hand, he found it necessary to see the further support of the little girl's should with his left.
