Excerpt from The Link, Vol. 5: August, 1947America for over two hundred years. Ben Franklin was its chief apostle in the early days of our history, and we are still delighted with his warm human treatment of the subject. In one of his stories he tells how, as a boy, he paid too much for a toy. Being fascinated by the gay sound of a shiny new whistle, he gave the boy who owned it a whole pocketful of coppers - everything he had. He thought he had made a bargain - but the boy who owned it a whole pocketful of coppers - everything he had. He thought he had made a bargain - but his family soon corrected that mistaken idea. He did not, however, regret the error as long as his joy in the whistle lasted. But the novelty wore off, and he began to think of all the nice things he could have bought with that money. In Short, he realized that he had paid too much for the whistle.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
