to delay an instant, and they were all restored; but before
they set out. Jack laboured with indefatigable zeal to finish
a couple of saddles and a dozen horseshoes, which he pre-
sented to the khan with many expressions of gratitude. The
khan was charmed with this proof of his affection, and in
return made him a present of a couple of fine horses, and
several valuable skins of beasts. Jack arrived ^\^thout any
accident at the EngUsh settlements, and selling his skins
and horses, found himself in possession of a moderate sum
of money. He now began to have a desire to return to
England, and one of the officers, who had often been obliged
to him during his captivity, procured him a discharge. He
embarked, therefore, with all his property, on board a ship,
which was returning home, and in a few months was safely
landed at Plymouth.

But Jack was too active and too prudent to give himself
up to idleness. After considering various schemes of busi-
ness, he determined to take up his old trade of forging; and
for that purpose made a journey into the North, and found
his old master alive, and as active as ever. His master, who
had always entertained an esteem for Jack, welcomed him
with great affection, and, being in want of a foreman, he en-
gaged him at a very handsome price for that place. Jack

was now indefatigable in the execution of his new office;
inflexibly honest where the interests of his master were con-
cerned, and at the same time humane and obliging to the
men who were under him, he gained the affection of all
about him. In a few years his master was so thoroughly
convinced of his merit, that, growing old himself, he took
Jack into partnership, and committed the management of
the whole business to his care. He continued to exert the
same qualities now which he had done before, by which
means he improved the business so much as to gain a con-
siderable fortune, and become one of the most respectable
manufacturers in the country. But, with all this prosperity,
he never discovered the least pride or haughtiness; on the
contrary, he employed part of his fortune to purchase the
moor where he formerly lived, and built himself a small but
convenient house, upon the very spot where his daddy's hut
had formerly stood. Hither he would sometimes retire
from business, and cultivate his garden with his own hands,
for he hated idleness.

To all his poor neighbours he was kind and liberal, re-
lieving them in their distress, and often entertaining them
at his house, where he used to dine with them, with the
greatest affability, and frequently relate his own story; in
order to prove that it is of very little consequence how a
man comes into the world, provided he behaves well and
discharges his duty when he is in it.
