Excerpt: I. ?I TELL you what it is, Abel. You think of everybody else before yourself. The Squire says there?s no sense in it.? ?No sense in what, Master Johnny?? ?Why, in supplying those ill?doing Standishes with your substance. Herbs, and honey, and medicine they are always getting something or other out of you.? ?But they generally need it, sir.? ?Well, they don?t deserve it, you know. The Squire went into a temper to?day, saying the vagabonds ought to be left to starve if they did not choose to work, instead of being helped by the public.? Our hen?roosts had been robbed, and it was pretty certain that one or other of the Standish brothers was the thief. Perhaps all three had a hand in it. Chancing to pass Abel Carew?s garden, where he was at work, I turned in to tell him of the raid; and stayed, talking. It was pleasant to sit on the bench outside the cottage?window, and watch him tend his roots and flowers. The air was redolent of perfume; the bees were humming as they sailed in the summer sunshine from herb to herb, flower to flower; the dark blue sky was unclouded.
