Not illustrated. 1841 edition. Excerpt: ...the murderer. He was a youth four or five years older than Abbass. He visited us frequently, not to play with our children, but to look at our books and maps, and ask questions about America. He was kind and gentlemanly in his manners, very respectful to us, attended our religious services, and seemed desirous that we should spend our summers in his village. But he never appeared joyous and happy as young people usually do. Indeed, he always seemed to me like one brooding over some secret source of grief, and though 1 never thought of his being the murderer of his nephew, yet I could not look upon him without suspecting, that envy, jealousy, and hatred were the cause of his unhappiness, nor without thinking of the curse, which a wicked mother's influence may inflict upon her posterity. A. P. B. 1 CORINT1ANS 7: 16. Husband, who shall tell to thee, That the loved one thou art leading, Swiftly toward eternity, Still perchance the way unheeding, --To thy prayers and counsels given, May not be thy crown in heaven? Wife, who bow'd by anxious care, O'er thy harden'd husband mournest, Following on through many a year, To that bourne whence none returnetb--Who shall tell, that, tcen to thee, He for whom thy watch is keeping, May not yet an angel be, Farsl)eyond this vale of weeping? Parent, who with tearful eye, O'er each slumbering couch art bending, Dreading that futurity, Toward which each tiny foot is wending, Labor on with many a prayer, Watch the thousand pitfalls round thee; On that goodness cast thy care, Which a sure relief hath found thee. Do the darlings of thy soul Fill thy boding heart with sorrow? Passions spurning just control Promise yet a fearful morrow?--Cheer thee, labor on, and pray, He'who dries the mourner's tear, Who on earth may dare.
