AUNT BETSEY, there's going to be a new Declaration of Independence. "Bless and save us, what do you mean, child?" And the startled old lady precipitated a pie into the oven with destructive haste. "I mean that, being of age, I'm going to take care of myself, and not be a burden any longer. Uncle wishes me out of the way; thinks I ought to go, and, sooner or later, will tell me so. I don't intend to wait for that, but, like the people in fairy tales, travel away into the world and seek my fortune. I know I can find it."

About the Author
Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American author and activist. She advocated for abolition and women’s rights, including suffrage, and served as a nurse during the Civil War. Alcott was best known for her literary work. She wrote several short stories and poems, and used a pen name to write passionate adult novels. Alcott’s most acclaimed work to date is Little Women, which has since inspired many film adaptations, and was well-received both critically and commercially when it was first published.
