AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Set in London, a poor little match-boy, Dick, is helped by a rich but lonely young gentleman who he inspires to study to be a doctor at Cambridge. Dick's father dies of consumption then Dick himself sickens, leaving his baby brother to support the family by sweeping crossings - the secret of their origins to be kept til his dying day. Sentiment and pathos. (PB).
