<p>Putting down the cake, Alice sighed. There seemed nothing to do but wait, and Alice had never enjoyed waiting for anything, except medicine, examinations and castor oil. She curled up on the floor against one leg of the gigantic table and rested her head on her knees. After a moment, her eyelids fell. After her run and the endless fall, she was very tired indeed.</p>

<p>Some time later (it was hard to judge time in that endless room), she awoke to see an enormous Mouse snuffling at the cake that lay beside her. She jumped: and the poor creature scuttled away as fast as its feet could carry it. 'Oh, please don't run away!' she cried. 'I shan't hurt you!'</p>

<p>The Mouse turned to look at her. `Honestly,' Alice continued, holding out the cake. `Don't feel afraid...'</p>

<p>It twitched its whiskers. `Oh dear,' thought Alice to herself. `I don't know how one addresses a Mouse'. `Dear Mouse,' she said aloud. Then, thinking of her brother's Latin Grammar, `A mouse--of a mouse--to a mouse--a mouse--O mouse!', she corrected herself; `O Mouse'. </p>

<p>The Mouse looked at her rather inquisitively, and seemed to her to wink with one of its little eyes, but it said nothing.</p>

<p>`O Mouse,' said Alice, `I do wish you'd tell me how to get to that garden. I've been here for such a long time, Mouse dear, and I can't seem to open the door.'</p>

<p>She was quite taken aback when the creature replied. `Why, it's quite simple!' it exclaimed, in a shrill little voice. `If the door is locked, you must climb out of the window!'</p>

<p>`But --' began Alice, who had been quite sure that there had been no windows displaying a view of the little garden. But the Mouse was quite correct. A large sash window was set into the wall, and she wasted no time in trying it. It slid open quite easily - it was the work of a moment to slide through it and outside, into that beautiful garden.</p>
