One day, she finds a coin in the street and uses it to download buns at a bakery, but despite being very hungry, she gives most of the buns away to a beggar girl dressed in rags who is hungrier than herself.
The bakery shop owner sees this and wants to reward Sara, but she has disappeared, so the shop owner instead gives the beggar girl bread and warm shelter for Sara's sake. Carrisford and his Indian assistant Ram Dass have moved into the house next door to Miss Minchin's school.
Carrisford had been Captain Crewe's friend and partner in the diamond mines. After the diamond mine venture failed, both Crewe and Carrisford became very ill, and Carrisford in his delirium abandoned his friend Crewe, who died of his "brain fever.
This item appears in the following Collection(s)
Although Carrisford survived, he suffers from several ailments and is guilt-ridden over abandoning his friend. He is determined to find Crewe's daughter and heir, although he does not know where she is and thinks she is attending school in France.
Ram Dass befriends Sara when his pet monkey escapes into Sara's adjoining attic. After climbing over the roof to Sara's room to get the monkey, Ram Dass tells Carrisford about Sara's poor living conditions.
As a pleasant distraction, Carrisford and Ram Dass download warm blankets, comfortable furniture, food, and other gifts, and secretly leave them in Sara's room when she is asleep or out. Sara's spirits and health improve due to the gifts she receives from her mysterious benefactor, whose identity she does not know; nor are Ram Dass and Carrisford aware that Sara is Crewe's lost daughter.
When Carrisford anonymously sends Sara a package of new, well-made, and expensive clothing in her proper size, Miss Minchin becomes alarmed, thinking Sara might have a wealthy relative secretly looking out for her, and begins to treat Sara better and allows her to attend classes rather than doing menial work.
One night, the monkey again runs away to Sara's room, and Sara visits Carrisford's house the next morning to return him. When Sara casually mentions that she was born in India, Carrisford and his solicitor question her and discover that she is Captain Crewe's daughter, for whom they have been searching for years.
Sara also learns that Carrisford was her father's friend and her own anonymous benefactor, and that the diamond mines have produced great riches, of which she will now own her late father's share. Then if she heard either of us coming, she would just run back and jump into her chair and pretend she had been there all the time.
But she had already begun to like this odd little girl who had such an intelligent small face and such perfect manners. She had taken care of children before who were not so polite.
Mariette told the head housemaid that she thanked her as if she was thanking a lady. Indeed, she was very much pleased with her new little mistress and liked her place greatly. After Sara had sat in her seat in the schoolroom for a few minutes, being looked at by the pupils, Miss Minchin rapped in a dignified manner upon her desk.
Sara went to her politely. My impression is that your papa wished you to learn French.
But, as it was, she felt a flush rising on her cheeks. Miss Minchin was a very severe and imposing person, and she seemed so absolutely sure that Sara knew nothing whatever of French that she felt as if it would be almost rude to correct her. The truth was that Sara could not remember the time when she had not seemed to know French.
Her father had often spoken it to her when she had been a baby.
Her mother had been a French woman, and Captain Crewe had loved her language, so it happened that Sara had always heard and been familiar with it. The French master, Monsieur Dufarge, will be here in a few minutes.

Take this book and look at it until he arrives. She went back to her seat and opened the book. She looked at the first page with a grave face.
She knew it would be rude to smile, and she was very determined not to be rude. He was a very nice, intelligent, middle-aged Frenchman, and he looked interested when his eyes fell upon Sara trying politely to seem absorbed in her little book of phrases.
Created for Lit2Go on the web at etc.Wonderful narration, I will definitely listen to it again. And the Indians of Virginia do not want the white men in their beautiful country. To hear this pretty childish voice speaking his own language so simply and charmingly made him feel almost as if he were in his native land—which in dark, foggy days in London sometimes seemed worlds away.
Chapter 2: A French Lesson
Monsieur Dufarge began to smile, and his smile was one of great pleasure. Sara invites Becky to live with her and be her personal maid, in much better living conditions than at Miss Minchin's. At first there were lots of them ; then there were none o f them, but in the end there were lots of them.
Reviewer Fantastic narrator!
