Guess A Quote

Last week’s quote was from Sir Bentley and Holbrook Court. In November I will be having a giveaway of Sir Bentley on this blog.

I was told that the quote last week was almost impossible to guess, so hopefully this week’s will be a little easier. Here it is.

For a few seconds Becky was almost speechless with admiration. Then she said in an awed voice, “Onct I see a princess. I was standin’ in the street with the crows outside Covin’ Garden, watchin’ the swells go inter the operer. An’ there was one everyone stared at most. They ses to each other, ‘That’s the princess.’ She was a growed-up young lady, but she was pink all over–gownd an’ cloak, an’ flowers an’ all. I called her to mind the minnit I see you, sittin’ there on the table, miss. You looked like her.”

What story do you think this quote is taken from? (Check the tags for clues.)

    I think it’s a quote from “A Little Princess” by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
