LESSON 28. There is a poor blind man at the door. He is quite blind. He does not see the sky, nor the ground, nor the trees, nor

He does not see us, though we are so near to him. A boy leads him from door to door. O, it is a sad thing to be blind. We will give the blind man some bread and cheese. Now he is gone. He is a great way off. Poor blind man ! Come in, Charles. Shut the door. I wish the poor blind man had a warm, house to live in, and kind friends to take care of him, and teach him to work. Then he would not beg from door to door.

Listen to the tender counsels of your parents. Love them, for they love you, and have taken care of you ever since you were born. They loved you and took care of


you were little helpless infants, that could not talk, nor walk about, nor do any thing but cry, and give a great deal of trouble.

Obey your parents. They know better what is proper for you than you do; and they wish you to be good, and wise, and happy.

Love your brothers and sisters. Do not tease nor vex them, nor call them names; and never let your little hands be raised to strike them. If they have any thing which you would like to have, do not be angry with them, nor try to get it from them. If you have any thing they like, share it with them.
