Excerpt from Harper's Story Books: A Series of Narratives, Dialogues, Biographies, and Tales, for the Instruction and Entertainment of the Young
IN this book the reader will learn how a simple-hearted boy, after having yielded to temptation and sin, and thus filled his soul with the distress and sufi'en'ng which a guilty conscience always brings, succeeded in finding peace and happiness again by peni tence and faith in Jesus Christ. The object of the book is not to teach technical theology, but practical religion and I am sure that there is nothing in it which any true Christian can disapprove of, nor that any parent whatever, whether Christian believer or not, can be unwilling to have taught to his children.
