It's not in the 'on-line' version at the University of Virginia site, but in Project Gutenberg it is.. and the last bit IS a poem who's first letters spell out Alice's name.. the text follows: A boat beneath a sunny sky, Lingering onward dreamily In an evening of July-- Children three that nestle near, Eager eye and willing ear, Pleased a simple tale to hear-- Long has paled that sunny sky: Echoes fade and memories die. Autumn frosts have slain July. Still she haunts me, phantomwise, Alice moving under skies Never seen by waking eyes. Children yet, the tale to hear, Eager eye and willing ear, Lovingly shall nestle near. In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream-- Lingering in the golden gleam-- Life, what is it but a dream? THE END

This is not Prince Mu-Chao's easter egg, folks: he pinched it from me in this thread: http://www.eeggs.com/items/1929.html

This IS correct. At the end of "Through the Looking Glass" in the chapter titled "Who Dreamed It?" The poem ending the story does spell out Alice Pleasance Liddell very obviously...how could you contest that?

This IS correct and is in the last page of THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. But in the back of the copy I have the *editor's note* states Carroll's acoustic of Alice Pleasance Liddell.
