Wilkins Freeman The Grandmother by Mary Heaton Vorse The Daughter-in-Law by Mary Stewart Cutting The School-Girl by Elizabeth Jordan The Son-in-Law by John Kendrick Bangs The Married Son by Henry James The Married Daughter by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps The Mother by Edith Wyatt The School-Boy by Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews Peggy by Alice Brown The Friend of the Family by Henry Van Dyke
