Riassunto: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 Excerpt: ...within the decade I write of, one good and kind friend of these little fellows--a Mrs. Montagu, who died in March, 1800. She was a lady of good family, and an authoress (founder of the Blue CHIMNE Y S WEEPS. 217 Stocking Club), who even attempted so high a flight as an "Essay on the Writings and Genius cl Shakespeare." In her practical benevolence, her heart felt for these little pariahs, and she annually regaled them on May-day, with roast beef and plum pudding. This conduct was so contrary to the general spirit of the age--which could see nothing more in a " climbing boy," than a boy being utilized for his own good, and for that of the community, that her conduct was scarcely understood--so much so, that a web of romance had to be woven around her, in order to account for it. It was rumoured, and credibly believed, that she had lost a son, and found him again as a "climbing boy "; and, to mark her sense of gratitude for his restoration, she feasted all the boys in London on the sweep's holiday--Mayday. Of course, there is not an atom of foundation for such a story, but practical philanthropy was then so unusual, that a reason had to be found for its observance. After her death the following verses were written: "And is all pity for the poor sweeps fled Since Montagu is numbered with the dead? She who did once the many sorrows weep, That met the wanderings of the woe-worn sweep 1 Who, once a year, bade all his griefs depart, On May's sweet morn would doubly cheer his heart! Washed was his little form, his shirt was clean, On that one day, his real face was seen. His shoeless feet, noiv boasted pumps, and new. The brush, and shovel, gaily held to view 1 The table spread, his every sense was charmed, And every savoury smell...
