Mister Horn and His Friends: Or, Givers and Giving (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Mister Horn and His Friends: Or, Givers and GivingMister Horn had begun life as a farm laborer -literally begun life, for as soon as he could make noise enough he had been sent out to scare the birds from the grain, and as soon as he could reach up to the bridle he had led the cart horses to water. His sixty years had been full Of progress; he turning his hand to one thing after another and prospering in all - wood man, gardener, bricklayer, builder, heurning his hand to one thing after another and prospering in all - wood man, gardener, bricklayer, builder, he had at length reached a good position as steward.The Mister was probably a tribute of respect paid to his prosperity; it was no deference exacted by his manner or exclusiveness. As plain in life as ever, free and' friendly with the poorest, the children trotted along by his side, looking up for a smile and a nod; the boys stopped him for a moment to fling their peg top, or to have a turn at marbles; and on a summer's evening one might come upon a group under a shady tree, and there, amid a' lot Of delighted youngsters, would find Mister Horn entertaining them with a story.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
