Daddy Long Legs

Jerusha Abbott was an orphan. She was brought up in an asylum until she turned 17. One of the supporters of the asylum offered her money for her education. He didn’t want to let her know who he was. One thing that he required for her to do was to write a letter to him every month. Judy (she changed her name) wrote a lot of nice and humorous letters about her college, her friends and love. This novel was written by Jean Webster in 1912. Untill now, this book is still so popular that the foundation for the children who have lost their parents was named Daddy-Long-Legs Foundation.
