John set out for Ireland the next morning Early but he had not proceeded far before he overtook two peelers who were travelling the same Way. He entered into conversation with them and found them a pair of merry Fellows who proved excellent company on the Road. Now it happened towards the end of their Day a i journey when Tivey were All tired with walking that they came to a Wood through which there was a Patio that shortened the distance to the town they Weie Ginji toward by two Niles. The Pedlis advised John to to with thai to rough the Wool but he rinsed to leave the Hig in Vii telling thin at the same Tinie he woo i meet them again at a a Quot i nil tavern in Ali j own alien travellers put up. John was willing t the Worth of the advice which Iii master had Given him and hear lived in safely and took up his Quarter at the a jointed place. U Hile he a Ealing Liis supper an old Man c ame hobbling into the Kitchen and 1, ave orders about different matters there and then went out again. John Ltd ii ild liken no particular notice i it i this but immediately after a \ ung woman Young enough to be tie old Man s Dao Hier came in and trave orders exactly the contrary of Itiat the old Man Lead Given calling Hini at the same time a a Reat Many Liard Lames such As old fool and old Dothard and so on. When she was gone John enquired who the old my was. A Why he is the lao Loril Quot said the servant Quot and he even help him a Dou s life he has led since he married his last wife. A what Quot said John with suprise Quot is that Young woman the landlord s wife i see 1 must not stay in Thi a nose to night Quot and tired As he was he i of up to leave it but went no i Luther than the dour before he met t be two peelers All cot and bleeding Oming in for hey had been robbed and almost Mir died in the Wood. John was very sorry to Bee them in the it condition and advised them not to Lodge in that a House telling them with a signify ant nod that All was not right there but the poor pedlar were Sii weary and so bruised that Tiey would Stop where they were and Dis Rei a id Thi advice. 11 Tiller the in remain ill the House John retired to the stable and Laid himself ii w i upon a bundle of Straw where he shot very soundly for some time. Alu it the Middle of the night lie to persons come into the stable and on listen Iii to their conversation discovered Liat it was tie Landlady and a Man laying a plan How to murder her husband. In the morning John renewed his journey but at tie next town he come to he was told that the landlord in the town he had left had been murdered and that two peelers whose clothes were found All covered with blood had been taken up for the crime and were go ing to be hanged. John without mentioning what tie had overheard to any person determined to save the if possible and so returned in order to attend their trial on going into the court he saw the two men at the bar and the Young woman and the Man whose voices he had heard in the stable a wearing their innocent lives away hut the judge allowed him to give his evidence and lie told every particular of what occurred. The Man and tie Young woman instantly con fessed their guilt the poor pedlar were at once acquitted and the judge ordered a larger Ward to be paid to John Carroll As through his Means the real murderers were brought to a slice. John now proceeded towards Home fully convinced of the value of two of the advises Whitti his master had Ulvi n him. On arriving at Tus Cabin he found his wife and Clith Lrein rejoice i govera purse full of Gold which the eldest boy had Pii ked upon the Road that morning.

Those Only who have teen a family of such beggars As i describe can fancy the Joy with which the poor woman welcomed her husband Back and informed him of the purse full of Gold. A a and where did Mick my boy find it Quot enquired John Carson. Quot it was tie Young Squire for certain who dropped it Quot said his wife Quot Foi he Rode Down the Road this morning and a Lead of his horse in the very Gap where Milky picked it up but sure John he has Money enough besides and never the halt Penny have i 10 let by my poor children u bit this Bies d nit Quot never mind to i it Quot said John Quot joas i bid y a and take up he pulse at once to the big Housand ask or the it Oung Squire.

When she returned her husband produced the two cakes which his master gave him on parting and breaking one to device Between his children How was he astonished at finding six Golden guineas in it and when he took lie Urier broke it he found As More. He then remembered the words of his generous master Olio desired him to give one of the cakes to his wife and not to eat the other himself until thai time and this was the Way his master took to conceal his wages lest he should have been Rob bed or have lost tie Money on the Road. The following Day As John was standing near his Cabin door and turning Over in his mind Liat he should do with his Money the Young Squire came Riding Down the Road.
