' The Story of the Treasure Seekers by E. Nesbit
Read by Brian Smith
14— ' Now Nothing is the Same '
Depression sets in amongst the Bastables, but spirits improve when the Indian Uncle calls next day with some presents-from a friend, he tells them. He calls often after that and invites them to his house on the Heath where they find some of the people who were nice to them during their searches for treasure. They learn, too, that a rosy future awaits them-the best treasure that could come to any seekers.
