IIV WII.KIK rol.l.lNS.
What ram Kointr to It'll you, jjuntlt)
iiK'ii, happened when I was a very
young man, and when I was just .settliij,'
up In htisiiiens on my own account.
My father had boon well acquainted
for ninny years with Mr. Fuuntleroy, of
tlio famous London hankinj' firm of
Marsh, Strncey, Fauntleroy and Gra
ham. Thinking it might ho of some
future sers'ico to mo to make my posi
tion known to a great man in tho com
mercial world, my father mentioned to
ills highly respected friend that I was
about to htart in business for myself in a
very small way, and with very little
money. Mr. Fuuntleroy received the
intimation witlt a kind appearance of
interest and said ho would havo his oyo
on inc. 1 expected irom this that ho
would wail tofccolf I could keepon my
legs at starting, ami Hint if ho found I
succeeded pretty wcll,hu would then
help mo forward if it lay In his power.
As events turned out ho proved to ho n
far butter friend than that, anil ho soon
showed mo that I had very much under
rated tho hearty and generous interest
which ho had felt in my welfare from
Wliile I was still lighting with tho
dilllcultlt's of setting up my olllce, and
recommending myself to connection,
ad so forth, I got a message from Mr.
Fauntleroy telling mo to mil on him,
at the banking house, the flrst time I
was passing that way. As you may
easily Imagiito, I contrived to bo passing
Unit way on a particularly early occa
sion, mid on presenting myself at tho
bank, 1 was shown at onco to Mr.
Fauntlcroy's private room.
Ho was as pleasant a mat' to speak to
as over 1 met with bright, and gay,
and companionable in his manner
with n sortof easy, hearty, Jovial blunt-
The clerks all liked lilm and that Is
something to say of it partner in a bank.
!ng.hou-:e, I can tell you I
"Well, young Towhrldgo," h.ys he,
giving his papers on tho table a brisk
push away from him, "so you are going
to ret up in business for yourself, me
you? 1 havo n great regard for your
father, mid a great wish to bee you suc
ceed. Havo you started yet? No? Just
ou tho point of beginning, eh? Very
good. You will huvo your dllllciiltles,
my friend, and 1 mean to smooth one of
them uway from you at tho outset. ' A
word of advice for your private ear
Hank with us."
"You aio very kind, sir,'' 1 answered,
"ami I thoullask nothing better than
to juotlt by yoursuggestlou, if I could,
but my expenses aro heavy at starting,
and when they nro all paid I am afraid
I shall havo very little left to put by for
tho firot year. I doubt If I shall bonblo
to muster much moro than three hun
dred pounds ol surplus cash in tlm
world after paying whnt I must pay bo
foie I ut up my olllco, and 1 should bo
nshmiH'd to trouble your house, sir, to
otn nn ticcouiit for such a trlllo as
"Stuff and nonseiibo I" says Mr.
Fauntleroy. "Aiojou u banker? What
ImtliHss huvo you to oiler nu opinion
ou tlio matter ? Do us I toll you leavo
it to mo hank with us nnd draw for
what you llko. Stop! I haven't dono
oet. When you open tho umount, speak
to tho head cashier. Perhaps you will
find that ho has got something to tell
you, Them! therol go away don't
interrupt me good-hye-aod bless
That was his wtiy ah ! poor fellow,
that was his way.
I went to tho head c.ishler tho next
morning when I opened my llttlo modi
cum of nn account. Ho had received
orders to pay my drafts without refer
ence to my balatico. My checks when
I had overdrawn, were to bo privately
shown to Mr Fauntleroy. Do many
young men who start In business find
their prosperous superiors ready to help
them in that way ?
Well, I got on got on very fahly and
steadily, being caroful not to venturo
out of my depth, and not to forget thnt
small beginnings may load in time to
great ends. A prospect of ooo of thoo
great ends great, I mean, to Bitch a
small trnder as I was at that period
showed Itself to mo when 1 had been
some littlo tlmo in busiuess. In plain
terms, I had a chimco of Joining in a
flrst-rato transaction, which would givo
me profit and position, and everything
I wanted, providcdl could qualify my
self for engaging in it by getting good
security beforehand for a very lnrgo
In this emergency, I thought of my
kind friend, Mr. Fauntleroy, and went
to tlio hank, nnd saw him onco moro in
his private room.
Thero lie was nt tho samo tablo with
tho samo heaps of papers about him,
nnd tlio same hearty easy way of speak
ing Ids mind to you at once, in tho few
est possiblo words. I explained tho
business I came upon wllh somo llttlo
hesitation and nervousness, for I was
afraid ho might think I was taking an
unfair itdvantago of his former kind
uesi to me. When 1 had done, ho Just
nudded his head, snatched up n blank
sheet of paper, scribbled n few lines on
It in his rapid way, handed tlio writ
ing to me, nnd pushed mo out of tlio
room by tho two shoulders beforo I
could say n single word. I looked at
the paporin tho outer ofllcc. It was my
security from that great banking' houso
for the whole amount, and for more, If
more was wanted.
I could not express my gratitude
then, and I don't know that I can de
scribe it now. I can only say that It
lias outlived the crime, tho disgraeo,
nnd tho awful death ou tho scaffold. I
am grieved to speak of thnt death at

The course of my story must lead mo
straight on to tho latter time, and to
tho terrible discovery which exposed
my benefactor a nd my friend to all
England ns tho forger Fauntleroy.
1 must nsk you to suppose a Inpsoof
somo time nfler tho occurrenco of tho
ovents that i havo Just been relating.
During this interval, thanks to tho
kind assistance I had received at tho
outset, my position as u man of business
had greatly Improved. Imagine me
now, If you please, on the high road to
prosperity, with good largo ollleosand a
respectable stair of clerks, nnd picture
me to yourself sitting alono in my
private room, between four and flvo
o'clock ona certain Saturday afternoon.
All my letters iind been written, nil
tho peoplo who hnd appointments with
mo had been received. I was looking
carelessly over tho newspaper, and
thinking about going home, when one
of my clerks came in, and said that a
stranger wished to seo mo immediately
ou very important business.
"Did ho mention his name?" I In
"Did you ask him forit?"
"Yes, sir. And ho said you would

"Does ho look liko a begging letter
"Hespokoshnrp nnd decided, sir, nnd
said it win in your Interest that ho
came, and that you would deeply regret
it afterward if you refused to seo him."
"Ho said that, did ho ? Show him in
at onco, then."
Ho was shown up immediately: a
middle sized man, witii a sharp, uu-
wholefouio looking face, dressed in n
stylo of shabby smartness, eyeing mo
wllh a hold look, anil not so overbur
dened with politeuessastotroublohlm
self about taking oft' his bat when ho
came in. I had noverseen him beforo
in my life, and 1 could not form tho
slightest conjecture from his appcar-
anco toward guessing his position In tho
world. Ho was not iv gentleman, evi
dently; but as to fixing his whereabouts
in tho Infinite downward gradation of
vagabond existence In Loudon, that
was a mystery which I was totally in
competent to solve.

Ho turned to tho door. Tho mlnuto

tho twenty minutes to tho quarter.
"Dono what you promised." 1 re
peated, getting up to stop him.
"Yos," ho said, witii ids linnd on tlio

thero was something in tlio man's Inst

I looked at tho clock. Tho mlnuto
iiand wns on tho qunrtcr.
My olllco was Just far enough from
tho bank to make it nocossnrv fur inn in
decido on tlio instant. If I had had
time to think, r nm perfectly certain
that I should not havo profited by tho
extraordinary warning that had Just
been addressed to me. The suspicious
nppoaranco nnd manners of tho stran
ger ; tho outrageous improbability of
tho infereuco against tho credit of tho
hank, toward which bis words pointed;
tho chnnco that somo underhand at
tempt was being made, by somo enemy
of mine, to frighten mo into embroiling
myself with ono of my best friends,
through showing nn ignorant distrust
of tho firm with which lie was associa
ted ns partner all these considerations
would unquestionably have occurred to
mo if I could havo had time for reilec
tion ; and, us a ncceasary consequence,
not one fnrtliine: ofmv halaneo wnnM
havo been tnken ftom tho keeping of
tho bank on thnt mcmorablo day.
Ah it was, I had Just timo enough to
act, and not a snare moment for think
ing. Some heavy payments mado at
uio negmniiigor tlio week had so far
decreased my balance thnt tho sum to
my credit in tho hanking book barely
reached fifteen hundred pounds.
I snatched up my check book, wroto
a draft for tlio whoio amount, nnd or
dered ono of my clerks to run to the
bank and got it cashed before tho doors
closed. What impulse urged mo on ex
cept tlio blind inipulsoof hurry and bo
wildermcnt I can't eay. I nctcd me
chanically, under tlio influence or tho

started lor the bank, and I was alone
again In my room, with my hands as
cold as ice and my head all in a whirl.
I did not recover my control over my
self until tho clerk came back with tho
notes in hfshnnd. Ho hnd Just got to
the bank in tlio nick of timo. Am Mm
cash for my draft was handed to him
over tho counter, tho clock nli ni'1: llvn.
and ho heard tlio order given to close
When I had counted tho bank notes
and had locked them up in thosafo,my
better senso seemed to como back to
mo on a sudden. Never havo I re
proached myself beforo or since as I
reproached myself at that moment.
What sort nf return had I made for
Mr. Fauntleroy 'a fatherly kindness to
me? I had Insulted him by the meanest,
tho grossest distriifit of the honor and
tho credit of his house, and that on tho
word of an absolute stranger, of a vag
abond, if over there was ono yet. It
was madness down-right madness iu
any man to havo acted as I had done.
I could not account for my own incon
ceivably thoughtless proceeding. I
could hardly beliovo in it myself. I
opened tiio safe aud looked at the bank
notes again. I locked it onco moro,
and flung tho key down on tlio tablo
in a fury of vexation against myself.
Thero tho money was, upbraiding mo
with my own inconcelvablo folly,
telling mo iu tlio plainest terms that I
had risked depriving myself ormy best
and kindest friend henceforth uud for
It wns necccssary to do something at
onco toward making all the atonement
that lay in my power. I felt that, as
soon as I began to cool down it littlo,
thero wasbu t onoplaln,stralghtforw.rd
way now loft out of tho scrapo In which
I had liccn mad enough to involve my
self. I took my hat, and, without
stopping an instant to hesitate, hur
ried otr to tlio hank to mako aclean
breast of it to Mr. Fauntleroy.
When I knocked at tho privalo door
and asked fur him, I was told that he
had not been nt thu bank for tho last two
days. Ono of tho other partners was
there, however, nnd was working nt
that moment in Ills own room,
I scut iu my name at onco, and uskod
to seo him. He and I were llttlo better
than strangers to each other, aud tho
intcrvlow was likely to be, ou thnt ac
count, unspeakably embarrassing and
humiliating ou my side, Still, I could
not go homo. I could not enduro the
inaction of tho next day, tho Sunday,
without having dono my bast on the
spot to repair the error Into which my
own Tolly had letl me. Uncomfortable
ns Melt ut the prospect of thu approach
ing Intcrvlow, I should huvo been far
moro uneasy in my mind if the partner
had declined to seo me.

that 1 hardly know what I was talking
about ut tho tlmo. Tho ono circum
stance which 1 remember clearly is that
I was ashamed to refer to my Interview
with the strange man. and that I tried
to account for my sudden wlthdruwul
of my balance by rearing It to somo
Inexplicable panic, caused by mischiev
ous reports which I was utiablo to traco
to tholr sourco, and which, for anything
I know to tho contrary, might, after
all, havo been only started In Jest.
Greatly to my surprise, tho partner

I lint! observed on his race when I came

oven to keep up tho nppe.irunco or list
ening to mo; and when, at last, I r.ilrly
brokodown In tho middle or n sentence,
nnd gave up tho hopo or getting any
further, nil tio answer ho gavo mo was
comprised Inlhosofow civil common
placo words :
"Nover mind, Mr. Trowbrldgo; pray
don't think or npologizlng. Wo aro nil
iinblolo mako mistakes. Say nothing
more about it, nnd bring tho money
back on Monday If you still honor us
with your confidence."
Ilelooked down nt his papers ns II ho
was unxlous to bo nlotio ngaln, nnd I
had no alternative, or course, but to
take my leavo Immediately. I went
home, reeling a llttlo easier lu my mind
now that I had paved tho way for innk
lug the best practical atonement in my
power by bringing my bahuico back
tho flrst thing on Monday morning.
Still IJpassed a weary day on Sunday,
reflecting sadly enough that I had not
yet mado my poaco with Mr. Fauntlo
roy. My anxiety to set myseir right
with my generous friend was so intense
that I risked intruding myself on his
privacy by calling nt his town residence
on Saturday. Ho was not there, nnd
his servant could tell mo nothing of his
whereabouts. Thero was no help ror it
now, but to wait till ids week-day duties
brought him back to tho hank.
I went to business on Mon Jay morn
ing hair an hour earlier than usual, so
grcnt was my Impatience to restore tlio
amount or that unlucky draft to my ac
count as soon as possible after tho bank
On entering my ofliee, I slopped with
a startled reeling just insido tho door.
Something serious had happened. Tho
clerks, instead or being at their desks
as usual, wcro all huddled together
in a group, talking to each other with
blank faces. When they saw mo, thoy
fell hack behind my managing man,
who stopped forward with a circulnr In
"Havo you heard tho news, sir?" ho
"No. What is it?"
IIo handed mo tlio circulnr. My
heart gavo ono violent throb tho instant
I looked nt it. I felt myseir turn palo;
I felt my knees trembling under me.
Marsh, Stracey, Fauntleroy and Gra
ham had stopped payment.
"Tho circular has not been Issued
moro than half an hour," continued
my nianaging clerk. "I have just come
rrom tho bank, sir. Tho doors nro shut;
thero is no doubt nbout it. Marsh A
Company havo stopped this morning."
I hardly heard him ; T hardly knew
who was talking to me. My strango
visitor or the Saturday had taken in
stant possesion or all my thoughts,
and his words or warning seemed to bo
Bounding, once moro iu my ears. Tills
man had known tho ttuo condition or
tho bank when not another soul ontsldo
tho door was nwnro or It! Tho last
draft paid across the counter or that
ruined house, when tho doors closed on
Saturday, was tho draft that I hail so
bitterly reproached myseir for drawing;
the one balance saved from the wreck
was my balance. Whoro had tho strang
er got tho information that had saved
mo? and why had ho brought It to my
ears ? "
I was still groping, llko a man in tlio
dark, Tor an answer to these two ques
tions I was still bewildered by the un
fathomablo mystery or doubt into
which thoy had plunged mo when tho
discovery or the stopping or tlio bank
was followed nhnost imcdlntoly by n
second shock, for moro drcndftil, ftir
heavier to bear, so far ns I wns concern
ed, thun tho flrst.
While I and my clerks were discus
sing tlio failure r,f tho firm, two mer
cantile men, who veto friends of mine,
ran into tho out ce, and overwhelmed us
with tho news that one of tho partners
had been arrested for forgery. Never
shall I forget tho terrible MumUy morn
ing when those tidings reached me, and
when I know that the partner was Mr.
I was truo to him I can honestly say
I was (rno to my belief in my generous
friend when that fearful news reached
mo. My fellow merchants had got nil
tho particulars of tho arrest. Thoy told
mo that two of Mi. F.iuiitleroy's fellow
trustees had come up to London
to make arrangiuonta about selling out
somo stock. On inquiring for Mr. Faunt.
leroy ut the banking house, they had
been Informed that he was not thero:
and, after leaving a messago for hlui,
they had gouo Into the city to mako an
appointment with their stock broker
mr u future day, when their follow
trustco might bo ublo to attend. Tho
slock broker voluntceioj to mako cer
tain business inquiries on tho spot, with
a view to saving as much timo ns pos
sible, and left them ut his olllco to await
ills return; Ho enmu back, looking
very much tinuued, with tho informa
tion that tho stock had been sold out
down to tho last llvo hundred pounds.
Tho alVair was Instantly Investigated ;
tho document authorizing the selling
out was produced ; and tho two trustees
saw on It, sido by sido with Mr. Katint-
leroy's signature, thu forged signatures
of their own names. This happened on
Friday, uud tho trustees, without losing
a moment, sent tho officers orjustlco In

sired mo to do. I easily obtained tho
order, nnd went to tlio prison.
Tho authorities, knowing tho dread
ful situation in which ho stood, wero
afraid of his attempting to destroy him
seir, and had set two men to watch him.
One eamo out as thoy opened his cell
door. Tho other, who was hound not
to leavo htm, very delicately nnd con
siderately affected to bo looking out of
tho window tho moment I was shown
Uu was sitting on Hie sido of his bed,
with his head drooping nnd Ids hands
hanging listlessly over his knees when
I flrst caught sight or him. At tho
sound ormy approach ho started to his
foot, and, without speaking u word.
flung both his arms round my neck.
My heart swelled up.
"Tell mo It's not truo, sir! For God's
sake, tell mo it's not true," wns nil I
could say to him.
IIo never answered oh mo ! bo never
nnswered, nnd ho turned away his race.
Thero was ono dreadftil moment of
silence. Ho still held his arms round
my neck, nnd on a sudden he put his
lips close to my ear.
"Did you get your money out?" ho
whispered. "Wero you iu tlmo on
Saturday afternoon ?"
I broke Ireo rrom him In tho astonish
ment or hearing thoso words.
"What!" I cried out aloud, forgetting
tho third porson at tho window. "That
man who brought tho message "
"Hush I" ho snld, putting his hand
upon my lips. "Thoro was no better
man to bo found, after tho officers had
taken mo I know no moro nbout him
than you do I paid him well, as a
chaneo messenger, nnd risked his cheat
ing mo or the errand."
"You sent him, then!"
"I sent him."
My story is over, gentlemen. Thero
Is no need for mo to tell you tnat Mr.
Fauntleroy was found guilty, and that
ho died by tho hangman's hand. It wns
in my power tosootho his last moments
in tills world by faking on mysoir tho
arrangement or some or his privnto ir-
rairs, which, while they remained un
settled, weighed heavily on his mind.
Thoy had no connection with tho crlmo
ho had committed, so I could do him
tho last little service he was over to ac
cept nt my hands, with a good heart and
a clear conscience.
I say nothing in defence or his char
acter-nothing in palliation of thooflenco
or which ho suffered. But I cannot
forgot that in tho timo of ids most fear
ful extremity, when tho strong arm 0
tho law had nlrendy seized him, ho
thought of tho young man whoso hiim
blo fortunes ho had helped to build ;
whoso heartfelt gratitudo he had folrly
won ; whoso simple faith ho was resolv
ed nover to betray. I leavo It to great
er intellects than mine to reconcile tho
anomaly of Ids reckless falsehood
toward others nnd his steadfast truth
toward mo. It Is ns certain as that wo
sit hero that ono or Fauntleroy's last
efforts lit tills world was tho effort ho
mado to preservo mo rrom being a loser
by tho trust that I had placed in him.
Thero is tlio secret of my strango ten
derness for tho memory ora felon; thaf
