Among his acquaintances he had the good
fortune to nolude a wealthy merchant,whose
jUdgernen had led,him to form a lof!.y esti
mate of th besiness capacity of my friend.
To him/the young aspirant, for.mercantile
honors stated his case, and' the cotifere ee
ended in a voluntary proposition on the art
of the merchant to supply the goods n• -
rY . to stock his store--taking his notes—,the
first-of which would fall due in one. y_ "in

and in a few days, Frank - found hiniself in.
