Animal Companions

Jane Loudon was a 19th century British author who was a pioneer in what later became science fiction, and also wrote about gardening, botany, and horticulture. In this excerpt from her book The Young Naturalists’ Journey, or the Travels of Agnes Merton and Her Mama, one of the characters of the book, Mr. Trelawney, reads Agnes a letter from a friend that narrates the uncanny relationship between his dog Flora and Scugg, a small white rat. I transcribed it in Centennial Gregg.
