A collection of stories for children with special moral messages; respect for the aged, kindness to the poor, etc. One of many books produced by the American Tract Society for use in Sunday schools, now all quite hard to find.

Three attractive engraved plates, 110 pp. plus 16 pp of advertisements of Tract Society publications at rear of book.
