And Eichard saw, that, while he jjlayed, the tears ran
down his cheeks. And Eicliard said: Old man, why do
you cry ? And the old man said: Because I am very
hungry: I have no-bo-dy to give me any dinner or supper;
I jiave nothing in the world but this' little dog, and I
cannot work. If I could work I would. Then Eichard
went, without saying a word, and fetched the rest of liis
cake, wliich lie had in-tend-ed to have eaten another
day, and he said: Here, old man, here is some cake
for you.
The old man said: Where is it ? for I am blind, I
cannot see it. So Eicliard put it into his hat. And the
fiddler thanked him, and Eicliard was more glad than if
he had eaten ten cakes.
Pray, which do you love best? Do you love Harry best,
or Peter best, of Eichard best?
Lesson 8.
The noblest em-ploy-ment of the mind of man is to study
tlie works of his Cre-a-tor. To him, whom the science of
nature de-lighteth, every object bringeth a proof of his
God. His mind is lifted up to heaven every moment,
and his life shews what i-de-a he en-ter-tains of e ter-nal
wisdom. If he cast his eyes toward the clouds, will he
not find the heavens full of its wonders? If he look down
on the earth, doth not the worm jiroclaim to him, "Less
than in-fi-nite power could not have formed me?
AVliile the planets pursue their courses; while the sun
re-maineth in his place; while the comet wan-deretli
through space, and re-turneth to its des-tined spot
again: who but God could have formed them ? Beliold
how awful their splendour! yet they do not di-minish;
lo, how rapid their motion! yet one runneth not in the
way of an-other.
