A Little Princess

l'm afraid l have some bad news, Sara.
Your father has. . . .
Your father--
lt's been discovered that
your father has died.

He was killed in battle
several weeks ago.

l'm sorry.
That's the situation, and
there's nothing we can do to change it.

The British government has seized
control of his company and assets. . .

. . .leaving you penniless,
without any money.

Since you've no relations,
this puts me in a terrible position.

What are you staring at?
Don't you understand
what l'm saying?

You are alone in the world. . .
. . .unless l decide to keep you here. . .
. . .out of charity.
Because of the expenses you've
incurred, all you own is mine...

... your clothes, your toys, everything.
lt'll hardly make up for
the financial losses l've suffered.

From now on, you must earn
your room and board.

You'll move to the attic
and work as a servant.

lf you fail to meet our standards...
...or if you don 't obey,
you'll be thrown out.

And the streets of this city
are not kind to homeless beggars.

Report to Mabel in the kitchen
