What Katy Did at School. It was just after that happy visit mentioned at the end of ‘What Katy Did’, that Elsie and John made their famous excursion to Conic Section - an excursion which neither of them ever forgot, and about which the family teased them for a long time afterwards. The summer had been cool; but, as often happens after cool summers, the autumn proved unusually hot.
