This green cloth book with embossed red and black design and text on front board and spine is in good condition with minor edge and shelf wear. ; From Wikipedia: "Jerusha Abbott was brought up at the John Grier Home, an old-fashioned orphanage. . . One day, after the asylum's trustees have made their monthly visit, Judy is informed by the asylum's dour matron that one of the trustees has offered to pay her way through college. He has spoken to her former teachers and thinks she has potential to become an excellent writer. He will pay her tuition and also give her a generous monthly allowance. Judy must write him a monthly letter, because he believes that letter-writing is important to the development of a writer. However, she will never know his identity; she must address the letters to Mr. John Smith, and he will never reply." This book was the basis of several films including Shirley Temple's Curly Top. Please contact us for photos. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 304 pages
