HISTORY
of
ROBINSON CRUSOE
ABRIDGED.
I LESSON.
In the cily oi Hamburgh there lived a man whose
name was Crusoe, and who was father of three sons.
The eldest having an inclination for a military life,
enlisted, but was killed in a battle against the French.
The second who studied medicine, having once over-
heated himself, imprudently drank some cold water,
which brought on an illness of which he died. The
youngest, named Robinson, thus remained alone. His
, father and mother from that time put all their hopes
in this their only son. They loved him very ten-
derly, but it was an ill-judged affection they bore
him. They allowed him to do whatever he pleased,
and as this spoiled child was fonder of playing than
of working or learning, they permitted him to spend
the whole day in playing. By this means he learned
nothing, and when lie was grown up they did not
know what to do with him. His father wished to
see him follow the mencantile line j but the son had
not the least inclination to this way of life. He was
already seventeen years of age, and had spent the
greater part of his time in walking about the streets.
