Excerpt from The Commandment With Promise
A party of young people having been permitted to spend the day With me as a sort of holiday, I thought it best to leave them to amuse themselves, whilst, taking a book, I sat in the same room, to be ready either to promote their happiness, should they require any help, or to check any purposes which might be mischievous.
I took a chair near the window, and drawing a little table before me on which to rest my book, endeavoured to abstract my mind from their, conversation. They passed rapidly from one subject to another, each con tributing their share by relating the things they had ci ther learnt or seen, and being soon absorbed in the study of my own book, I had become insensible to their engagements. A sudden pause in the sound of voices had the effect of recalling my attention to them, when I observed the eldest girl exhibiting to the admiring eyes of her companions a miniature picture, which was in a red morocco case.
