see him, and - kindly him that there
was one boy in the seltool whom i:twould :`

-the Scltool, and that the- inference of ink's-,

ever he could eseape, not' when he should
suffer., He treated the -boy.;with signal
kindaess,and attentions , ,"-At first thistovel
course seemed to bewilderfiim. He could'
not .define its meaning. But, when the •
persevering kindness of the : teacher begot
a kindied sentiment of kindness in thopu,
