INTRODUCING TOM, THE BOOTBLACK. "How do you are feeling this morning, Jacob?" requested a boy of fifteen, bending over an outdated guy crouched within the nook of an higher room, in a bad tenement-house, far-off under 1 / 4 of a mile from the hot York urban corridor. "Weak, Tom," whined the outdated guy, in answer. "I--I ain't bought a lot strength." "Would you're keen on a few breakfast?" "I--I do not know. Breakfast bills money." "Never you brain approximately that, Jacob. i will be able to earn cash sufficient for either one of us. Come, now, you want a few espresso and eggs, would not you?" there has been a glance of keen urge for food within the outdated man's eyes as he heard the boy communicate. "Yes," he replied, "I should still like them; yet we won't come up with the money for it." "Don't you be frightened of that. i'm going to pass and ask Mrs. Flanagan to get a few prepared instantaneously. i have earned thirty cents this morning already, Jacob, and that'll pay for breakfast for the 2 people. i believe i'll consume a few breakfast myself."
