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.

The evident benefit George had received at the hands of the minister had won the latter much favour with George's family. The mother, especially, hardly knew how to show her thanks.
