liim Peter Careful. And Peter had written his mamma a
very clean pretty letter; there was not one blot in it at
all. So his mamma sent him a cake. Now Peter thought
with himself, I will not make myself sick with this good
cake, as silly Harry did; I will keep it a great while. So
he took the cake, and tugged it up stairs. It was very
heavy: he could hardly carry it. And he locked it up in
his box, and once a day he crept slily up stairs and ate
a very little piece, and then locked his box again. So lie
kept it several weeks and it was not gone, for it was
very large; but behold! the mice got into the box and
nibbled some. And the cake grew dry and mouldy, and
at last was good for nothing at all. So he was o-bliged
to throw it away, and it grieved him to the very heart.
Lesson 7.
Well, there was another little boy at the same school,
whose name was Eichard. And one day his mamma sent
him a cake, because she loved liim dearly, and he loved
her dearly. So when the cake came, Eichard said to his
school-fel lows, I have got a cake, come let us go and eat
it. So they came about him like a pared of bees; and
Eichard took a slice of cake himself, and then gave a
piece to one, and a piece to another, till it was almost
gone. Then Eichard put the rest by, and said, I will
eat it to-morrow.
He then went to play, and the boys all played together
mer-ri-ly. But soon after an old blind fiddler came
into the court: he had a long white beard; and because
lie was blind, he had a little dog in a string to lead him.
So lie came into the court, and sat down upon a stone,
and said: Jly pretty lads, if you will, I will play you a
tune. And they all left off their sport, and came and
stood round him.
