The old farmer bad failed in that year, and very tenderly and piti fully his grandchild nursed’him. He learned to lova her as by bad loved nothing fur many yeais, tu whieh her cxming, to fret sadly if she left him And, wearying for an interest In life, Georgina gave time, strength aad an Hi - failing patience tu the qnernl'.ius invalid.
