D ICK WHITTINGTON was a poor little boy,
who came to London to seek his fortune, for he
had heard in his own village that the streets of London
were paved with gold. But he soon found that he
must work or starve; so he went as a boy to help
Sthe cook in the family of a rich merchant. This
woman was, however, so bad-tempered and cruel that
Dick was miserable, and made up his mind to run
back to the country. He had walked as far as
Highgate, when, feeling tired, he sat down by a stone
to rest; suddenly, there came on the air the sweet
sound of Bow Bells chiming, and as Dick listened, he
thought they said: "Turn again Whittington-Lord
Mayor of London Town; turn again, Whittington."
The boy [thought that it was worth trying to make
this promise come true; so he did turn, and went
back to the old place. The cook was as cross as ever,
but Dick was resolved to be patient, though he had
very little to eat, hard blows often, and he slept in a
garret, where the rats ran over his face when he was
asleep. But one day a starving street cat mewed to
him as if asking for food; and Dick, who had a kind
heart, picked her up in his arms and took her home

to his garret. He shared his food with her, and in
return (for she was still hungry) she caught and drove
away the rats, so that he could sleep in peace and
safety. One day the merchant called all his servants,
and told them that a ship of his was going to sail to
far-off lands, and if they liked they might each send a
venture; that is, something to sell in her. They were
all glad to do so; but poor Dick had nothing but his
cat, and he did not like to part with her. However,
Miss Alice, his master's daughter. persuaded him to
send her, and Dick did not like to refuse, though he
wept at parting from Pussy.
The ship sailed till she came to an island which
was overrun with rats, because no cats were found
there. The King and Queen invited the Captain to
dine with them, but while they sat at table, the rats
ran in and got into the dishes and upset the drinking
cups. Then the Captain sent for Dick's cat. She jumped
on the table, and soon drove all the greedy animals
away. The King was so pleased that he at once
wanted to buy the cat. The Captain asked a large
sum for her, but the King not only gave it, but sent
great bars of gold to its owner. So Dick found
himself a rich man. His master took him as an
apprentice, and at last into partnership, and Dick
married Miss Alice. He was three times Lord Mayor
of London, and the King knighted him for his goodness
to the poor.
