SUNDRY WARS AND ALLIANCES. CHAPTER III. BUNDEY WAKS AND ALLIANCES. OOE old Benjy! the "rheumatiz" has much to answer for all throughEnglish country sides, but it never played a scurvier trick than in laying thee ' by the heels, 'when thou wast yet in a green old age. The enemy, which had long teen carrying on a sort of border warfare.andtry. ing his strength against Benjy's on the battle-field, of his hands and legs, now, mustering all his forcesBenjy's Decline. 45 began laying siege to the citadel, and overrunning the whole country. Benjy was seized in the back and loins; and though he made strong and brave fight, it was soon clear enough that all which could be beaten of poor old Benjy would have to give in before long. It was as much as he could do now, with the help of his big stick and frequent stops, to hobble down to the canal with Master Tom, and bait his hook for him, and sit and watch his angling, telling him quaint old country stories; and when Tom had no sport, and detecting a rat some hundred yards or so off along the bank, would rush off with Toby the turnspit terrier, his other faithful companion, in bootless pursuit, he might have tumbled in and been drowned twenty times over before Benjy could have got near him. Cheery and unmindful of himself as Benjy was, this loss of locomotive power bothered him greatly. He had got a new object in his old age, and was just beginning to think himself useful again in the world. He feared much too lest Master Tom should fall back again into the hands of Charity and the women. So he tried everything he could think of to get set up. He even went an expedition to the dwelling of one of those queer mortals, whosay what we will, andreason how we willdo cure simple people of diseases of one kind or another without ...

I am afraid that my review is not good. I was extremely upset and disappointed in this book purchase. I had expected a higher quality from Barnes and Noble. The book was printed without ony pictures on poor quality paper and the backing looked cheap, raw, and looked as if it wouldn't last one reading. The contrast between the print and the white paper made it look unpleasant, dull and difficult to read. My 11year old grandson is an avid reader but he didn't even pick up the book to begin. the cover was plain and not inviting. Because I had it sent to my grandson in another city it took a while before I could visit him and see the book. I am planning to return the book as my grandson has saved the packing slip. I only need to return to his home in Dallas for me to collect the book and papers and send it back. If you have any other questions or comments I am very willing to be available jujujon please contact me by email or phone which I will give if I can send this review directly to B & N and not over a large website. Thanks,
