Excerpt from The Story of Peter Lawley
Lawley and his wife had been married about twelve years; they had four children, two girls, one older and one younger than Peter, and a poor little boy under three years of age, who was a helpless cripple, owing to a fall from his mother's arms when he was quite an infant. The girls played about barefooted in the street, and paid no attention to what was said by their mother, and the little lame boy sat fretting at the door or by the side of the fire. Peter seemed to be pretty much like his companions, except that he was rather more willing to stick to work than nailers' boys in general, and was very kind to his helpless bro ther, and did what he could to amuse him.
