Excerpt: ... CHAPTER IX. A NEW COUNTRY. TWELVE months have gone since Ben and Willie found each other at Miss Pearson's Home; and during the whole of that time Willie--waited on night and day by his little companion--has been growing slowly stronger; and now he is almost as strong as Ben, well enough to take the voyage to Canada, and there is no further need of delay. It is a lovely May morning. The visitors and friends who came to see Miss Pearson's little party start for Canada, have said their last good-byes, and gone ashore; and the vessel, with her white sails fluttering in the wind, is quickly leaving the shores of England behind her. Willie and Ben, standing together upon the deck, gaze in silence, till the land, growing more and more shadowy, looks only like a cloud in the far distance. Then Ben, turning to his companion with flushed face, says, 'Willie, I mean, God helping me, to work in the new land we are going to, to get money; and when I'm a man, and we are both rich, we'll come back to rescue other little chaps, just as Miss Pearson rescued.us; we will teach them to know and love Jesus.' 'Yes, Ben,' is the answer, spoken in a low, earnest tone, 'we will work together. 'Twill be glorious to do such work for our Master, to help others as miserable and ignorant as we once were.' For a moment Ben is silent, looking dreamily out over the blue water; then, as he looks up, there is a glad light in his eyes, as he says,'Yes, Willie; and when our work is done, I shall see little Maggie again.'
