Johnston, Annie F: Mary Ware's Promised Land. v1. 16 Feb 2014q
Annie Fellows Johnston (1863–1931) was an American author of children's fiction who wrote the popular "Little Colonel" series, which was the basis for the 1935 Shirley Temple film The Little Colonel. She was born and grew up in McCutchanville, Indiana, a small unincorporated town near Evansville, Indiana.
When the Ware family boarded the train in San Antonio that September morning for their long journey back to Lone-Rock, every passenger on the Pullman straightened up with an appearance of interest. Somehow their arrival had the effect of a breath of fresh air blowing through the stuffy car. Even before their entrance some curiosity had been awakened by remarks which floated in from the rear platform, where they were bidding farewell to some friends who had come to see them off.
“Do write and tell us what your next adventures are, Mary,” exclaimed one clear voice. “Your family ought to be named Gulliver instead of Ware,for you are always travelling around to such queer, out-of-the-way places. I suppose you haven’t the faintest idea where you’ll be six months from now.”
