Rilla of Ingleside: Abridgement

In 1976, the American Reprint Company of Mattituck, New York, published a new hardcover edition of Rilla of Ingleside that silently cut 4,575 words from the novel, a total of 4% of the original text. Plates from this edition were used for the first Bantam-Seal mass-market paperback edition published in 1985, and the same text was used for subsequent Bantam-Seal editions in 1992 and 1996, which became the standard edition for a whole generation of Montgomery readers in North America. (I’m just learning now that the abridgement may have begun with an Australian edition published by Angus and Robertson in the early 1970s – I will clarify this once I’ve had a chance to study this more carefully.)

Although the edition that Andrea McKenzie and I put together for Penguin Canada in 2010 restored the full text of the original 1921 edition, space constraints made it impossible for us to discuss these cuts in detail. Now, nearly a decade later, as part of a Facebook Rilla of Ingleside readathon that Andrea and I started in March 2020, I’m including here a list of every cut and variation between the original 1921 McClelland and Stewart edition (which is believed to be identical to the original 1921 Frederick A. Stokes edition) and the 1996 Bantam-Seal edition, so that interested readers can see for themselves what text has been cut or modified and how these differences affect the textual integrity of Montgomery’s novel. I prepared this list almost twenty years ago after I first got wind of the fact that the Bantam-Seal edition of Rilla was missing text, and it is a great pleasure now to revisit this work and share it with interested readers.

Well, the other day Josiah went to William and said right out, ‘Let us be friends. ’Tain’t any time to be holding grudges.’ William was real glad and held out his hand, and they sat down for a good talk. And in less than half an hour they had quarrelled again, over how the war ought to be fought, Josiah holding that the Dardanelles expedition was rank folly and William maintaining that it was the one sensible thing the Allies had done. And now they are madder at each other than ever and William says Josiah is as bad a pro-German as Whiskers-on-the-Moon. Whiskers vows [1921:130–31] a word to him.

We are up this week but we will be down the next.’ ‘Well, Sophia Crawford,’ said I – for I never will give in to her, Mrs. Dr. dear – ‘God Himself cannot make two hills without a hollow between them, as I have heard it said, but that is no reason why we should not take the good of the hills when we are on them.’ But Cousin Sophia moaned on. ‘Here is the Gallipolly expedition a failure and the Grand Duke Nicholas sent off, and every one knows the Czar of Rooshia is a pro-German and the Allies have no ammunition and Bulgaria is going against us. And the end is not yet, for England and France must be punished for their deadly sins until they repent in sackcloth and ashes.’ ‘I think myself,’ I said, ‘that they will do their repenting in khaki and trench mud, and it also seems to me that the Huns should have a few sins to repent of also.’ ‘They are instruments in the hand of the Almighty, to purge the garner,’ said Sophia. And then I got mad, Mrs. Dr. dear, and told her I did not and never would believe that the Almighty ever took such dirty instruments in hand for any purpose whatever, and that I did not consider it decent for her to be using the words of Holy Writ as glibly as she was doing in ordinary conversation. She was not, I told her, a minister or even an elder. And for the time being I squelched her, Mrs. Dr. dear. Cousin Sophia has no spirit. She is very different from her niece, Mrs. Dean Crawford over-harbour. You know the Dean Crawfords had five boys and now the new baby is another boy. All the connection and especially Dean Crawford were much disappointed because their hearts had been set on a girl; but Mrs. Dean just laughed and said, ‘Everywhere I went this summer I saw the sign “men wanted” staring me in the face. Do you think I could go and have a girl under such circumstances?’ There is a spirit for you, Mrs. Dr. dear.

I fondly expected it would turn my hair black – and it turned it green.

It was a special mercy of Providence that it was only green dye and not poison.” ¶ “It seems hundreds of years since those Green Gable days,” sighed Mrs. Blythe. “They belonged to another world altogether. Life has been cut in two by the chasm of the war. What is ahead I don’t know – but it can’t be a bit like the past. I wonder if those of us who have lived half our lives in the old world will ever feel wholly at home in the new.” [1921:208] / liked red hair.” [1996:153] (185)
