Lesson 5.
There was a little boy whose name was Harry, and his
papa and mamma sent him to school. Now Harry was a
clever fellow, and loved his book; and he got to be first
in his class. So his mamma got up one morning very
early, and called Betty the maid, and said: Betty, I think
we must make a cake for Harry, for lie has learn-ed his
book very well. And Betty said: Yes, with all my heart.
So tliey made him a nice cake. It was very large, and
stuffed full of plums and sweetmeats, orange and citron;
and it was iced all over with sugar: it was white and

the school. When little Harry saw it, he was very glad
and jumped about for joy; and he hardly staid for a knife
to cut a piece, but gnawed it with his teeth. So he ate
till the bell rang for school, and after school he ate again,
and ate till he went to bed; nay, he laid his cake under
his pillow, and sat up in the night to eat some.
He ate till it was all gorie. — But soon after, this little
boy was very sick, and every body said, I wonder what
is the matter with Harry: he used to be brisk, and play
about more nimbly than any of the boys; and now he
looks pale and is very ill. And some-bo-dy said: Harry
has had a ricii cake, and eaten it all up very soon, and
that has made him ill. So tliey sent for Doctor Rhubarb,
and he gave him I do not know how much bitter physic.
Poor Harry did not like it at all, but he was forced to take
it, or else he would have died, you know. So at last he
got well again, but his mamma said, she would sc];id him
no more rich cakes.
Lesson 6.
Now there was an-other boy, who was one of Harry's
school-fel-lows; his name was Peter and the boys used to call
