Description

Excerpt from The Boy's Autumn Book: Descriptive of the Season, Scenery, Rural Life, and Country Amusements About the cart hear how the rout 0f rural younglings raise the shout, Pressing before, some coming after, Those with a shout, and these with laughter; Some bless the cart, some kiss the sheaves, Some prank them up with oaken leaves, Some pat the thill-horse, some with great Devotion stroke the home-borne wheat; While other rustics, less attent To prayer than to merriment, Run after, with their garments rent. Is not this a capital description, to be written above two hundred years ago The rural younglings, you know, means the boys and girls, who shouted and laughed, and ran before and after the load, some with garments rent; for you see any thing was good enough to glean in, and there were p or ragged children in those days. Some were so thankful, that they stroked the corn-sheaves with great devotion for their hearts were glad, when they saw how bountifully Providence had again provided for their wants.
