The Canadian Readers, 1931, Vol. 4 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Canadian Readers, 1931, Vol. 4 He rose early in the morning and went to his bench. But what did he see? There stood the pair of shoes, al ready made. The poor man could hardly believe his eyes, and he did not know what to think. He took the shoes in his hand to look at them closely. Every stitch was in its right place. A finer piece of work was never seen. Very soon a customer came, and the shoes pleased him so well that he willingly paid a higher price than usual for them. The shoemaker now had enough money to buy leather for two pairs of shoes. In the evening he cut them out with great care and went to bed early, that he might be up in good time the next day. But he was saved all trouble; for, when he rose in the morning, two pairs of well-made shoes stood in a row upon his bench.
