A little boy watched his father work and learned the lesson that man lives best by the sweat of his own brow,
not by the sweat of other men's brows. While they toiled, through the shadows of the surrounding forest a
savage stole secretly toward them on his soft moccasins. He paused, aimed his gun and fired. The man fell
over dead; then the Indian came rapidly, caught up the boy and ran off toward the woods with him. But his
older brother, Mordecai, ran to the log hut and catching up the ever ready gun shot the Indian through the
heart and sent him...

severe, and his sight was naturally so delicate, that the surgeon felt some apprehensions lest the boy should

When George Washington was a boy there was no United States. The land was here, just as it is now,
stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific; but nearly all of it was wild and unknown.
