Music: Good Morning

When she was 25 Patty Smith Hill was running a model kindergarten in Louisville, Ky. Grover Cleveland was President and Lillian Russell was the talk of Broadway. One day, Patty Hill's sister, Mildred, wrote a jingling little tune to which Patty fitted words. They published the song, copyrighted it, and sometimes Patty Hill would sing thus to her kindergarten children:

Good morning to you,
Good morning to you,
Good morning, dear children,
Good morning to all.

From Louisville the ditty and the tune...
