From, 'The Diary of a Provincial Lady' by E.M. Delafield
'Go up to night-nursery and offer to read Lamb's 'Tales form Shakespeare'. Vicky says she prefers 'Pip, Squeak and Wilfred'. Robin says that he would like 'Gulliver's Travels'. Compromise with 'Grimm's Fairy Tales', although slightly uneasy as to their being in accordance with best modern ideals. Both children take immense interest in story of highly undesirable Person who wins fortune, fame and beautiful Princess by means of lies, violence, and treachery. Feel sure that this must have disasterous effect on both in years to come.'
