A Tale for Young People.







* * *

The indulgence of passion makes bitter work for repentance, and produces a

feeble old age. BACON.

As violentcontrary winds endanger a ship, so it is with turbulent emotions

in the mind; whereas such as are favourable awaken the understanding, keep

in motion the will, and make the whole man more vigorous. ADDISON.

As Mr. Harewood was one evening sitting with his wife and children, he told

them that he expected soon to receive among them the daughter of a friend,

who had lately died in the West Indies.

Mr. Harewood's family consisted of his wife, two sons, and a daughter: the

eldest, named Edmund, was about twelve years of age; Charles, the second,

was scarcely ten; and Ellen, the daughter, had just passed her eighth

birthday: they were all sensible, affectionate children, but a little

different in disposition, the eldest being grave and studious, the second

lively and active, and as he was nearer to Ellen's age, she was often

inclined to romp with him, when she should have minded her book; but she

was so fond of her mamma, and was educated with such a proper sense of the

duty and obedience she owed her, that a word or a look never failed to

restrain the exuberance of her spirits.

Children are alike naturally curious and fond of society; the moment,

therefore, Mr. Harewood mentioned their expected guest, every one had

some question to ask respecting her; but as Ellen's was uttered with most

mildness and modesty, she was first answered; and her brother Charles,

taking this hint, listened quietly to the following conversation, not

joining in it, till he felt that he had a right to do so, from having

practised a forbearance that cost him some effort.

_Ellen._--Pray, papa, what is this little girl's name, and how old is she?

_Father._--She is called Matilda Sophia Hanson: her father was a man of

good fortune, and she is an only child; I believe, however, his affairs are

in an unsettled state, as her mother is under the necessity of remaining

some time in the country, in order to settle them. It is at her earnest

request that I have been prevailed upon to accept the charge of her

daughter. I believe she is about a year younger than you; but as the growth

of people in warm countries is more rapid than in this, I expect to see her

quite as tall and forward as you, Ellen.

_Ellen._--But, dear papa, how will she get here from a place on the other

side of the globe? I mean, who will bring her? for I know, of course, that

she must come in a ship.

_Father._--She will be attended by a negro servant, who has always waited

upon her; and who will return after she is safely landed, I suppose.

_Ellen._--Poor thing! how she will cry when she leaves her own dear mamma,

when she is to cross the wide sea! and then again, when she parts with her

good nurse; I dare say she will kiss her very fondly, though she is a


_Charles._--Oh, she will forget her sorrow when she sees so many things

that are quite new to her. I'm afraid she'll think Ellen, and us boys, very

silly, ignorant creatures, compared to her, who has seen so much of the

world: upon my word, we must be all upon our good behaviour.

_Father._--I hope you will behave well, not merely from conscious

inferiority, but because you would be both impolite and unkind, if you

omitted any thing in your power that could render a stranger happy, who is

so entirely thrown upon our protection--one, too, who has lost a fond

father, and is parted from a tender mother.

_Edmund._--But, papa, as Miss Hanson is coming to England for education,

and is yet very young, surely Charles must be wrong in supposing that she

is wiser, or, I ought to say, better informed, than we are, since it is

utterly improbable that she should have had the benefit of such

instructions as we have enjoyed.

_Father._--True, my dear; but yet she will, of course, be acquainted with

many things to which you are necessarily entire strangers, although I must

remark that Charles's expression, "she has seen much of the world," is not

proper; for it is only applied to people who have mixed much with

society--not to those whose travels have shown them only land and water.

However, coming from a distant country, a society very different from ours,

and people to whom you are strangers, she cannot fail to possess many ideas

and much knowledge which are unknown to you; I therefore hope her residence

with us for a time will prove mutually advantageous; but if the advantage

should prove to be on your side, I trust you will never abuse it by

laughing, or in any way insulting and teazing your visitant; such conduct

would ensure most serious displeasure.

_Mother._--It would prove them not only very ignorant, and deficient in the

education which even savages give their children, but prove that they were

devoid of that spirit of courtesy which is recommended in the Scriptures,

and which every Christian child will nourish in his heart and display in

his manners: the same holy apostle, who inculcated the highest doctrines of

his Divine Master, says also--"Be affable, be courteous, bearing one with


The children for a few moments looked very serious, and each appeared to be

inwardly making some kind of promise or resolution to themselves respecting

the expected stranger: at length, Ellen, looking up, said to her mamma,

with great earnestness--"Indeed, mamma, I will love Miss Hanson as much as

if she were my sister, if she will permit me to do it."

"You had better say, Ellen, that you will be as kind to her as if she were

your sister; for until we know more of her, it is not possible for us to

promise so much; nor is it advisable to give our hearts at first sight,

even to those who have yet stronger claims upon our good will and friendly


Mr. Harewood added his approbation of this sentiment, for he knew it was

one that could not be repeated too often to young people, who are ever apt

to take up either partialities or prejudices too strongly, and whose

judgment has ever occasion for the attempering lessons of experience.


At length the long-wished-for day arrived, and the young foreigner made her

appearance in the family of Mr. Harewood. She was a fine, handsome-looking

girl, and though younger in fact, was taller and older-looking than Ellen,

but was not nearly so well shaped, as indolence, and the habit of being

carried about instead of walking, had occasioned her to stoop, and to move

as if her limbs were too weak to support her.

The kindness and politeness with which she was received in the family of

Mr. Harewood, did not appear to affect the Barbadoes girl in any other

way than to increase that self-importance which was evidently her

characteristic; and even the mild, affectionate Ellen, who had predisposed

her heart to love her very dearly, shrunk from the proud and haughty

expression which frequently animated her features, and was surprised to

hear her name her mamma with as much indifference as if she were a common

acquaintance; for Ellen did not know that the indulgence of bad passions

hardens the heart, and renders it insensible to those sweet and tender ties

which are felt by the good and amiable, and which constitute their highest


In a very short time, it became apparent that passion and peevishness were

also the traits of this unfortunate child, who had been indulged in the

free exercise of a railing tongue, and even of a clawing hand, towards

the numerous negro dependants that swarmed in her father's mansion, over

whom she had exercised all the despotic sovereignty of a queen, with the

capriciousness of a petted child, and thereby obtained a habit of tyranny

over all whom she deemed her inferiors, as appeared from the style in which

she now conducted herself constantly towards the menials of Mr. Harewood's

family, and not unfrequently towards the superiors.

For a few days Mr. Harewood bore with this conduct, and only opposed

it with gentleness and persuasion; but as it became evident that this

gentleness emboldened the mistaken child to proceed to greater rudeness, he

commenced a new style of treatment, and the English education of Matilda,

so far as concerned that most important part of all education, the

management of the temper, in the following manner:

On the family being seated at the dinner-table, Miss Hanson called out, in

a loud and angry tone, "Give me some beer!"

Mr. Harewood had previously instructed the servant who waited upon them how

to act, in case he was thus addressed; and in consequence of his master's

commands, the man took no notice whatever of this claim upon his attention.

"Give me some beer!" cried she again, in so fierce a manner that the boys

started, and poor Ellen blushed very deeply, not only from the sense of

shame which she felt for the vulgarity of the young lady's manners, but

from a kind of terror, on hearing such a shrill and threatening voice.

The servant still took no notice of her words, though he did not do it with

an air of defiance, but rather as if it were not addressed to him.

The little angry child muttered, loud enough to be heard--"What a fool the

wretch is!" but as nobody answered what was in fact addressed to no one,

she was at length compelled to look for redress to Mrs. Harewood, whom,

regarding with a mixture of rage and scorn, she now addressed--"Pray,

ma'am, why don't _you_ tell the man to give me some beer? I suppose he'll

understand _you_, though he seems a fool, and deaf."

"My children are accustomed to say--'Please, Thomas, give me some beer;'

or, 'I'll thank you for a little beer;' and the loud rude manner in which

you spoke, probably astonished and confused him. As, however, I certainly

understand you, I will endeavour to relieve you.--Pray, Thomas, be so kind

as to give Miss Hanson some beer," said Mrs. Harewood.

Thomas instantly offered it; but the little girl cried out in a rage--"I

won't have it--no! that I won't, from that man: I'll have my own negro to

wait--that I will!--Must I say _please_ to a servant? must a nasty man in

a livery be _kind_ to me?--no! no! no! Zebby, Zebby, I say, come here!"

The poor black woman, hearing the loud tones of her young lady, to which

she had been pretty well used, instantly ran into the room, before Mr.

Harewood had time to prevent it, and very humbly cried out--"What does

Missy please wanty?"

"Some beer, you black beetle!"

"Is, Missy," said the poor woman, with a sigh, reaching the beer from

Thomas with a trembling hand, as if she expected the glass to be thrown

in her face.

Charles had with great difficulty refrained from laughter on the outset of

this scene; but indignation now suffused his countenance. The young vixen

was an acute observer, and, had she not been cruelly neglected, might have

been a sensible child. It instantly struck her, that his features disputed

her right; and, determined not to endure this from any one, she instantly

threw the beer in the face of poor Zebby, saying--"There's that for _you_,


It was not in the forbearance of the children to repress their feelings;

even Edmund exclaimed--"What a brute!"

Ellen involuntarily started up, and hid her face in her mother's lap, while

Charles most good-naturedly offered his handkerchief to the aggrieved

Zebby, kindly condoling with her on her misfortune.

Mr. Harewood now, for the first time, spoke.--"Zebby," said he, in a calm

but stern tone, "it is my strict command, that so long as you reside under

my roof, you never give that young lady any thing again, nor hold any

conversation with her: if you disobey my commands, I shall be under the

necessity of discharging you."

The young lady checked herself, and for a moment looked alarmed; but

recovering, she said--"She is not _yours_, and you sha'n't discharge her:

she is my _own_ slave, and I will do what I please with her; poor papa

bought her for me, as soon as I was born, and I'll use her as I please."

"But you know your mamma told you, that as soon as she arrived in England

she would be _free_, and might either return or remain, as _she_ pleased.

Now it so happens that she is much pleased with my family, and having a

sincere regard for your mother, she this morning requested Mrs. Harewood

to engage her in any service she could undertake: convinced that she was

worthy our protection, we have done this, and therefore all _your_ claims

upon her are over."

The little girl, bursting into a passionate flood of tears, ran out of the


Poor Zebby, courtesying, said--"Sir, me hopes you will have much pity on

Missy--she was spoily all her life, by poor massa--her mamma good, very

good; and when Missy pinch Zebby, and pricky with pin, then good mississ

she be angry; but massa say only--'Poo! poo! she be child--naughty tricks

wear off in time.' He be warm man himself."

The poor negro's defence affected the little circle, and Mr. Harewood

observing it, said--"You perceive, my dear children, that this child is

in fact far more an object of compassion than blame, for she has been

permitted to indulge every bad propensity of her nature, and their growth

has destroyed that which was good; of course, her life has been unhappy in

itself, yet punishment has not produced amendment. Poor thing! how many of

the sweetest pleasures of existence are unknown to her! She is a stranger

to the satisfaction of obliging others, and to the consciousness of

overcoming herself, which, I trust, you all know to be an inestimable

blessing. I truly pity her; but I am compelled to treat her as if I blamed

her only; I am obliged to be harsh, in order that I may be useful, and give

pain to produce ease."

In about an hour, finding that no one approached, and feeling the want of

the dinner her shameful rudeness and petulance had interrupted, and which

she had but just begun, Matilda came down stairs, with the air of a person

who is struggling to hide, by effrontery, the chagrin she is conscious of

deserving: no person took any notice of her entrance, and all appearance

of the good meal she wanted was removed. There was a certain something in

the usually-smiling faces of the heads of the mansion that acted as a

repellent to her, and she sat for some time silent; but at length she spoke

to Ellen, who, from her gentle meekness, was ever easy of access, and whom,

intending to mortify, she accosted thus--"Nelly, did you eat my chicken?"

Charles burst into a loud laugh, as Ellen, who had never heard herself thus

addressed, for a moment looked rather foolish; on which he answered for

her, with a somewhat provoking sauciness of countenance--"No, Matty, she

did not eat your chicken."

"My name is not Matty--it is Matilda Sophia, and you are a great booby for

calling me so; but Nelly, or Nell, is short for Ellen, and by one of those

names I shall call her, whenever I choose, if it be only to vex _you_."

"Perhaps, too, you will choose to prick her, and pinch her, Miss Matilda

Sophia Hanson?" answered Charles, sneeringly, drawing out her name as long

and as pompously as it was possible.

"Fie, Charles!" said Edmund; "I am sure you act as if you had forgotten all

that papa told us about Miss Hanson."

Charles, after a moment's thought, acknowledged that he was wrong, very,

very wrong.
