Book Description:
1870 DONALDS HAMPER. A DISCOVERY, SUPPOSE most little boys and girls know what it is to have a friend, I do not mean a grown up friend, but a little boy or girl friend of their own age, to whom they tell their secrets, and whom they think the most deliglltful little per sonage in the world. It is very pleasant to have such a little friend, is it not . Then I hope you do not W quarrel. Bear and forloenr, is a good motto for all little folks who have little friends and if it was oftener kept in mind, your friendships would last longer, I think. It is selfishness that oftec destroys the strongest friendships. Yes, I am afraid I must say that it was selfishness that made Walter Leigh look so very unhappy as he paced the shady shrubbery walk of Beechmood House School one Saturday a. fternoon, and thought how badly his friend Donald Nackay had treated him. I mill tell what had happened between these two young friends, and you mill see whether I am not right in thinking that8Walter, tl ough he had no idea of it, was n verv J selfish, exacting little boy. Both Walter Leigh and Donald BIackay Lad been at school about a gear they had come about the same time, they mere in the same class, they slept in the same bedroom, sat close together at meals, and everybody said they were very great friends. But the day before the Saturday to which I have referred Donald had received a hamper from his guardian. IIe very selclom had hampers, but was always very liberal in dividing the contents with his companions. Yet on this particular occasion he had not shown quite so much alacrity in dis posing of his treasures, but carried ihe basket upstairs to open it there. However, as a huge cake and a quan tit y of gingerbread mere. soon brought down and dit iied, the boys thought nothing more about it, and devoured their shares with great eagerness. Xot so TValter. He ate Lis cal G, it is true he would not have been a boy if Le had refused it but he was offended that he h d not, as U S U , . been called to assist at the opening of the basket. There was some mystery about it, and he secretly resolved to find out what it was. The hamper would hold more than the cake and gingerbread, and he scspected there was sometlling else wllich Pni ald was keeping for his private eating. If so, Ill not have uch a pig for my friend, he inwardly resolved, as he remembered how fairly and equally Le had always shared everything with Donald Lut Ill find it out. But how was the question. I might ask him whether he had emptied his basket but no, I wont, he would think I was asking for soxne t h i mo re and I wouldnt do at for the world. I know what Ill do Le has got a host of impositions which will keep him in the school room after tea when the other felloivs go to the playa 3 r ound, Ill rush up here like lightning and have a hunt for the wretched old basket and if I find it,. wont I just see what is in it I am afraid Walter must have been some relation of the celebrated individual, Paul Pry, or at least a p u i l of his, for he carried out his inquisi tive plan just as he Lad intended, and, as he imagined solved the mysterv .. . Donalds hamper he found under his Sed, it was or lys lightly fastened, and he easily undid it. Yes, tliere was something left inside the Lamper there was a littk basket covered with tissue paper, which smelt delicious. Some strawberries, Ill be bound, exclaimed TValter, as he opened one corner to see. No, bktter still some splenili ripe peaches. Well done,...
