“Marjorie's Christmas Hat. - 6 slides, coloured. Marjorie, having seen the feather-trimmed hat of a little friend, wants to have one like it as a Christmas present. Her mother thereupon tells her of the sacrifice of the poor parent birds and of the suffering of the fledglings, and Marjorie is taught to realize that hats with such trimmings entail a great amount of suffering.”
