HARRY'S


READING BOOK.


PHILADELPHIA :
WILLIS P. HAZARD, 724 CHESTNUT ST.
1862.
)





I love the summer.
I love to go to the
woods and lie down
in the shade of the
tall trees. I love
to sit on the bank
of the stream and
see the cows wade
in the wa-ter to
cool themselves. p
5




I love to drive my
hoop on the lawn
in the bright light
of the sun; and
when I get hot I
love to rest in the
shade. I love to see
the fields of grain,
and the bright
green grass. e

I love the winter.
I love to slide on
the ice. I love to
play in the snow
and to throw snow
balls and to make
snow men and
snow forts. I love
to go to school
with my little
19




brother John in
the winter time.
Mother wraps us
warm in our great
coats and scarfs
before we start for
school. I love to
take my sled out,
when school is out,
and play.

John and I have a
sled. It is a nice
sled shod with iron
and it runs quite
smooth and easy.
I can draw John
on it and he. can
draw me on it,
though he is a
small.boy. When*
13




the other boys help
me draw, we can
go quite fast like a
sleigh or coach.
We often go up to
the top of the high
hill and ride down
4o the bottom on
our sleds. John and
"I fell in the snow.

Come with me,
Jane, and look out
at the door. See
the men and boys;
how they skate on
the pond. See how
fast they glide over
the ice. One falls
down and the
others passion and
17





leave him to get up
as he can. Ah! he
has got up and
does not seem to
mind it at all. I
should like to skate
on the pond. But
I have- no skates.
It is good sport for
,men and boys.

Did you ever see a
snow shoe ? *It is a
very queer looking
thing. It is very
large and still quite
light. It is put on
over your shoes or
boots and 'spreads
out far to keep
you from sinking "
21





down in the soft
snow. The Indians
use them when
they hunt, and the
people in Lapland
use them. They
must be odd things
to walk in; they
are so large and
clumsy.

Harry is blind.
He is old now and
yet he is patient
and does not com-
plain; but gives
thanks to his father
in Heaven for
his many blessings.
When he was
young he went to
25
7..




sea and lost his
sight by lightning.
He has been blind a
long time. We
should learn of him
to be patient; and
to submit to the
will of God in all
things. This is
true wisdom.

Poor blind Harry is all alone.

John and James
went out into the
fields one day to
play. They found
a wren's nest; but
they did not touch
the eggs, for fear
it would make the
wren leave her
nest. Then they
29




went among the
weeds and bushes;
and Jane lay down
among the weeds
and fell a-sleep;
and John staid by
her a long time.
At last' he made
her wake up and
go home.

Frank is a tall boy.
He thinks he is
quite a man. So
he has got a bugle
and he is learning
so play. I think
it must be hard
work to blow on a
bugle. I think I
will not try it. If
33




S1 learn music I will
learn to play on a
violin or a piano.
They are not near
so noisy as a bugle,
nor so hard to play
upon. I love all
kinds of music;
but singing most'
of all.

Kate and Jane are
two old women
who live in small
cottages in the
skirts of the town.
They earn their
living by hard
work. Kate is a
nurse for sick
folks; and Jane

Once" in a while
they take tea
together. See here
they are taking
tea. They seem to
have a nice .easy
time of it. I dare
say they enjoy
their tea,

My cousin Jenny
tends a shop. She
has to sell lace and
thread, ribbons and
caps and a great
many other things.
My cousin Jenny
can count money
and make out bills.
She is quite smart;
45




some time she will
have a shop of her
own. Then she
will help her poor
mother more than
she does now. It
is good to help
one's parents as
well as to honour
them.

Hans is an old
Dutchmam. He
loves to sit in his
arm chair and
smoke his pipe.
Once in a while his
cousin Dirk comes
to see him; and
then old Hans tells

49




stories in his Dutch

laughs, whether
the stories are
funny or not; just
to please old Hans.
He is very shrewd,
and often gets

P




Did you ever blow
soap bubbles. It
is fine sport ? You
take a bowl of soap
water and a com-
mon smoking pipe;
and you blow the
bubbles up in the
air; and they sail
about and show,
57




on their smooth
sides, the colours
of the rainbow;
but they soon burst
and fall. They re-
mind us that earth-
ly pleasures soon
pass away. But we
know there are
lasting pleasures.

Aunt Mary and
little Maria went
into the fields to'
gather some flow-
ers. When they
had got a large lot
they sat down it
the shade of a
great spreading
oak tree, and made
61




them into nice gar-
lands, and brought
them home to deck
the parlour. They
said that it was
fine sport. I should
< like to do the some
thing, same fine
day. The flowers
smell so sweetly.
