Thomas Was too pore to have a riding horse handy in a barn and ready to saddle, but he'd gladly walk anywhere today. His Strong, stocky body usu ally moved slowly. Today he swung along quickly, two miles up the road to the place Where Tom and Betsy Sparrow lived. They were the foster parents of his Wife, Nancy, and it was at their cabin he told his news.
