Lesson 48.
Ann and John Lamb were botli quite good, and all, who
knew them, were fond of them. I will tell you what they
did for a poor lad, that they met one day in the street. —■
Ann and John, as they went through the street, saw this
poor lad some way off; and they saw that his face was pale,
and that he was weak and faint. His coat would not keep
the wind and rain off him, for it was all in rags; he had
no hat, nor would his shoes keep ins feet from tlie cold
So they went to him and gave him some pence, which
they had, to buy him some bread and meat; for he told
them, that he had not broke Iiis fast that day, and they
said to him: "If you will go home with us, we will try
to get you a hat, and a coat, and some shoes."
Well, you may be sure he was glad to go with them, for
lie was quite cold. So tliey came and told their Papa what
they liad done, and said: "If he would give the poor boy
one of John's hats, an old coat, and a pair of shoes, they
would save all the pence that they might get, till they
could buy a new suit for John."
Their Papa, who was a good man, said he would do so;
and, said he : "Since you make so good use of the cash
that I give you, I do not wish you to lay it by, I will buy
John a new suit." They were both glad to hear this, and
said they would still be good, and love their Papa who was
so kind to them.
As for the poor boy, I wish you had seen him; his heart
was so full of joy, that he could not speak; but the tears
ran down his face, and he made them a low bow, and
went his way. I hope that all, who read this, will be kind
to the poor, then all who know them will love them, and
God will love them too.
