Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...man show that he was happy? I wonder if Hans was happy, too. He had many things to make him happy. Can you tell some of them? (He was going home to see his mother; his master had said he was a good boy; he had a piece of silver as big as his head.) Yes, and here was a man singing a song.

See if Hans was ready to change. Page 19. Was Hans pleased with the change? Read, trying to show by your reading that he was pleased. Hans had been working for his master for seven long years.
