1869. Excerpt: ... THE TRY COMPANY. BY REv. G. BOWLER. James
lounging on the stage, whittling. Enter, Samuel. Samuel.--Hallo
Jemmy; come, let's go down to old Rogers, and help him to get in
his wood. You know how old he is, and he can't do much--let's go
down and help him. James.--Oh I can't; it's too hard work getting
in wood; besides, I'd rather sit still thin work', any time.
Samuel.--Yes, but ycu know that the more you sit still, the more we
want to; and if we never stir our stumps, we shall never get to be
anything in the world. For my part, I want to be somebody, and I
mean to be. Come come along; let's go and help the old man.
James.--No, I can't I don't want to help other folks. It's as much
as I can do to help myself; besides, I've got lots of work to do at
home--wood to split and coal to sift, and and all sorts of things.
You may go if you're a mind to, but I shan't. Samuel.--Well, Jemmy,
if you've got work to do of your own, I won't urge you; but I
thought as you sat here whittling, that you had nothing elseto do.
I shouldn't think that was the way to get work done up. James.--Oh,
well; I don't like to work. I wish there was n't any such thing as
work. This pushing, and pulling, and working, and studying, aint
the thing I like; besides, I never can make anything go. My wood is
always full of knots, and I can never find the axe when I want it;
and if I try to dig in the garden, it's always full of stones and
old roots; and I aint agoing to trouble myself about work, now I
tell ye. Samuel.--Well, Jemmy, I can't Btop to talk with you now,
for we boys are going to form a Try Company, and after that we
shall get in old Roger's wood for him. I think the best thing you
can do will be to join us, and see if you can't wake up a little,
and find out how to make work see...
