I added the quote to this image from "Dickens' Children, Four Drawings by Jessie Willcox Smith" that appeared in the December 1910 issue of Scribner's Monthly Magazine. It is of Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit on Christmas Day.
"In came little Bob, the father, with at least three feet of comforter, exclusive of the fringe, hanging down before him; and his threadbare clothes darned up and brushed to look seasonable; and Tiny Tim upon his shoulder."
I'm sending my best Merry Christmas wishes to you and yours from my cottage on Christmas Day 2009.
