He expected to be discharged, but his regard for the dictates of his conscience was appreciated, and he was retained.
A short time before the close of his apprenticeship, a customer wanted goods which they had not on hand: he promised to obtain them by noon, and sent a porter for them to Boston. He did not return as -non a- he ex- pected, and he went alter him. On his way with his hand- cart he met Mr.
