Suddenly he heard a knock at the door, and before he could answer, it flew open, and the icy blast, laden with snow, rushed in, and whirled round the hut, fluttering the pages of Lilly's grammar and the fleece of the lamb."I've left this farm to William," continued Reuben, "because I've naun else to leave it to that I can see.
