Doctor Goldsmith (1) [Doctor Goldsmith]

Doctor Goldsmith (1)
There was a kind man whose name was Oliver Goldsmith.

He wrote many delightful books, some of which you will read when you are older.

He had a gentle heart.
he was always ready to help others and to share with them anything that he had.

He gave away so much to the poor that he was always poor himself.

He was sometimes called Doctor Goldsmith; for he had studied to be a physician.

One day a poor woman asked Doctor Goldsmith to go and see her husband, who was sick and could not eat.

Goldsmith did so.
He found that the family was in great need.

The man had not had work for a long time.
He was not sick, but in distress.
And as for eating, there was no food in the house.

" Call at my room this evning, " said the Goldsmith to the woman,
" and I will give you some medecine for your husband. "

In the evning the woman called.

Goldsmith gave her a little paper box that was very heavy.

" Here is the medecine, " he said.
" Use it faithfully, and I think it will do your husband a great deal of good.
 But don't open the box until you reach home. "

" What are the directions for taking it ? " asked the woman.

" You will find them inside of the box, " he answered.

When the woman reached her home, she sat down by her husband's side, and they opened the box.

What do you think they found in it ?

It was full of pieces of money.

And on the top were directions;ー

Goldsmith had given them all the ready money that he had.
