   Our story starts ,in summer 1860, in the city of Baltimore.At that time the babies were usually born at homes.But Mr. and Mrs. Roger Button had different ideas.They wanted their first baby to arrive in a hospital.The Buttons were important in Baltimore society.They knew every good family in the town ,but everyone knew them ,too.
   This was their first baby, so naturally Mr. Button was nervous.He was hoping it would a boy so that he could send him to Yale College ,because he wanted to follow his track.This great day arrived. Mr. button hurried to the hospital.When he was close to the hospital, he saw the family doctor on the front steps.There was a serious look on the doctor's face and this made Mr. Button worried.
     He ran toward the doctor.
 "Doctor Keene" he shouted.
 The doctor turned and saw him."What happened?"Mr.Button asked."Is the child born?A boy or a girl?What...?"
"Talk sense!", the doctor said.
 "O.K.Is the child born?", he asked.
 "Yes",  he answered."A strange birth".
"Is it a boy or a girl?"
"Go and see"the doctor answered....
