WITH a single drop of ink for a mirror, the Egyptian sorcerer undertakes to reveal to any chance comer far-reaching visions of the past. This is what I undertake to do for you, reader. With this dropof ink at the endofmy pen, I willshow you theroomy workshop of Mr. Jonathan Burge, carpenter and builder, in the village of Hayslope, as it appearedon the eighteenth of June, in the year of our Lord 1799.

Such a voice could only come from a broad chest, and the broad chest belonged to a large-boned muscular man nearly six feet high, with a back so flat and a head so well poised that when he drew himself up to take a more distant survey of his work, he had the air of a soldier standing at ease. The sleeve rolled up above the elbow showed an arm that was likely to win the prize for feats of 7 8 ADAM BEDE.strength yet the long supple hand, with its broad finger-tips, looked ready for works of skill...
