2 "The one on the other side of the wall," answered Mistress Mary.
3 Mary began to laugh, and as he hopped and took little flights along the wall she ran after him.
4 He twittered and chirped and hopped along the wall as if he were telling her all sorts of things.
5 She went toward the wall and found that there was a green door in the ivy, and that it stood open.
6 Fruit-trees were trained flat against the wall, and over some of the beds there were glass frames.
7 There was one part of the wall where the creeping dark green leaves were more bushy than elsewhere.
8 There were embroidered hangings on the wall, and inlaid furniture such as she had seen in India stood about the room.
9 There, she found more walls and winter vegetables and glass frames, but in the second wall there was another green door and it was not open.
10 "I believe I have taken a wrong turning again," she said, standing still at what seemed the end of a short passage with tapestry on the wall.
11 She was just thinking this when she saw that, at the end of the path she was following, there seemed to be a long wall, with ivy growing over it.

14 And then Mary Lennox was led up a broad staircase and down a long corridor and up a short flight of steps and through another corridor and another, until a door opened in a wall and she found herself in a room with a fire in it and a supper on a table.
15 Then she ran through the kitchen-gardens again and out into the walk outside the long ivy-covered wall, and she walked to the end of it and looked at it, but there was no door; and then she walked to the other end, looking again, but there was no door.
16 Then she ran down the path through the other door and then into the orchard, and when she stood and looked up there was the tree on the other side of the wall, and there was the robin just finishing his song and, beginning to preen his feathers with his beak.
