When you are relating any thing, that you have seen, or heard, try to tell it exactly as it was:

Do not alter any part of it, to make, as you may think, a prettier story.

If you do not remember it all, say that you have forgotten it.

Persons who love the truth, never tell a lie, even in jest.

Think before you make a promise, whether you can perform it.

For if you say you will do any thing, and do it not, you tell a lie.

And then no one will trust you, or believe what you say.

If you have done wrong, do not deny it, even to avoid being punished.

If you are sorry, and try to do sonomore, people will very seldom be angry with you, or punish you.

They will love you for speaking the truth; they will think they may always believe you.. When you see very old and deformed people, you must not laugh at them nor mock them.

pur su ance un kind ress

For though you are now so young and active, you may have a fall, and break your bones and be lame, and deformed.

And if you live to be old, your hair will become gray, and fall off.

You will lose your teeth, and your face. will be covered with wrinkles.

And you will be very weak, almost like little children.

Would you then like to have naughty boys and girls laugh at you, and play you tricks? No; you would want every body to be kind to you, and try to help you.

Now it is winter, cold winter; the ground is covered with snow, and the birds do not sing in the trees.

But the days are growing longer, and it will soon be spring.

Spring is come; it is very pleasant; there is no snow upon the ground.


The grass begins to grow and look green, and there are buds on the trees.


Now there will be daisies, and cowslips, a great many pretty flowers.

Soon there will be blossoms on the trees, and they will be covered with green leaves. Now there are young lambs, and chickens and goslings.


The birds now fill the air with their sweet musick, while they fly from tree to tree.

In the Spring the farmer ploughs his ground, and prepares it to receive the seed.

He rises early in the morning, and ch eerfully performs the labour of the day.

When the ground is prepared, he sows the seed, and covers it with soft earth.

Gentle showers cause it to spring up; the warm sun also maketh it grow.

The Spring is past; now it is Summer; it is very warm, and the days are long.

There will now be ripe fruit; cherries, and currants, and peaches, and many other kinds.

Now there will be roses that smell so sweet, and fine pinks.

Hark! what noise is that? it is the mower whetting his scythe.

It is hay time; he is going to cut down the grass, and the pretty flowers.

See, a part of

Let us go into the field. the grass is already cut down.

The men and boys, with their forks and rakes, are spreading it about

How hard they work; come, let us help them make the hay.

How sweet the hay smells; when it is quite dry, it must be made into stacks

Hay is for sheep, and cows, and horses, to eat, in the winter, when there is no green grass.

Now is the time of wheat harvest; the wheat is brown, it is quite ripe.

There are the reapers with their sharp sickles; they are come to reap down the wheat, and the rye.

When it is dry, it must be taken to the barn to be threshed.

Then it must be sent to the mill to be ground; when it is ground, it is called flour. Flour is made into bread, and bread is for us to eat.

Now the summer is over, and the days are not so long as they were.

There are few flowers in the fields; and the leaves are falling from the trees.

Autumn is come; and the weather begins to be cool.

The farmer now hastens to gather his 'crops, to secure them from the cold frost.

The spring is past; and the labours of summer and autumn are past.

Winteris again come; the weather is cold; and now the boys may go to school
