Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ...one nurse is to read, you remember The Pilgrim's Progress. I will tell you about its author when I come home, but now I must not stay. Now this big book with large print, called The Bible, which will tell you a great deal more about Jesus. We will have some reading out of it together on my return. I want you also to let nurse tell you what is written in this little book for every morning." "I don't suppose she can read," grumbled Dick, "and we gets on very badly." "Oh, she is one of our best-educated women," said Esther, looking grieved; "and as to not getting on, that must be your fault, for she quite loves you." Dick winced as she went on. "I shall be reading this same Daily Food many miles away, and be thinking of you both, so you will let her read it, and on my return I will present it to you." This was said smilingly, and Dick laughed; it was always so very pleasant to him to hear Esther's voice; in fact, it had spoilt him for his nurse's, which was so low that often he could not catch her words. "All right, miss; you know what you likes generally happens; that's why you are so good, I suppose." "Oh no, Dick; I often have to put up with things I don't like; but I try not to mention them, and then they grow easier. But now I must talk to you about something quite different." The boy shifted his position uneasily. "You remember those shirts. Well, of course your parents know you are here," she went on quickly, feigning a blindness to his angry looks; "they wanted very much to come and see you." "They shan't!" he muttered fiercely. "No; so I told them," was the calm reply; "not till you were ready to see them...".show more
