Not illustrated. 1869 edition. Excerpt: ...little else the remainder of the day but sit by his side and pity him. But as the evening drew on, and Tim, ashamed to go to school, began to reflect upon his own conduct, his bitter feeling toward Dick Hayter cooled down, and he remembered that he had acted very badly himself. "I hadn't ought to have fought Dick," he said to Rho, as they sat side by side on the strand. "When he came out of the water a-foaming like a dog-fish, I oughtn't to have gone near him, Rho, but I did. I was that angry I could have almost killed him." "Oh, Tim! you wouldn't have done that, I'm sure," said Rho. "Yes, Rho, I could then--I wouldn't now, of course. But I thought of nothing but paying him out for getting hold of my chick then. I couldn't help his tumbling over into the water, because I came on him all of a unawares: but I oughtn't to have fought him. Oh, Rho! I shall never be Christ's child if I fight like that. And what will Mr. Cairn say? Oh dear, I am real sorry!--and my eyes do ache so!" "Poor Tim!" said Rho, patting him on the cheeks. "Poor Tim! you look ever so bad. But you said Mr. Cairn said, the other day, if people were really sorry for being naughty, Jesus Christ forgave them, and would help them to be naughty no more. I'm sure he will help you, Tim, because he sees you are sorry, and he knows how hard it was for you to see Whitey hurt. Let us ask him to." And little Rho knelt down by her brother's side, and said, "Dear Jesus, please to look at Tim's heart, for he is real sorry; and please to forgive him, and make him a good boy and me a good girl. Amen." A species of shark, which frequents our coasts in considerable numbers, and does great injury to the fishermen's nets....show more
