The Lamp of Fate



A story of a woman who tried to take all and give nothing.

Then to the rolling Heav'n itself I cried, Asking, "What Lamp of Destiny to guide Her little Children stumbling in the Dark?" And—"A blind Understanding!" Heaven replied.--The "Rubaiyat" of Omar Khayyam.

To AUDREY HEATH. Dear Audrey: I always feel that you have played the part of Fairy Godmother in a very special and delightful way to all my stories, and in particular to this one, the plot of which I outlined to you one afternoon in an old summer-house. So will you let me dedicate it to you? Yours always, MARGARET PEDLER.
