McGuffeys Eclectic Primer Lesson XLVII



One day John went to the

pond to fish. His dog, Watch,

went with him.

John sat on a log for a time

but did not catch a fish.

As he got up to go, he fell

off the log.

Watch sprang in to save him.

John put his arms round the

dog’s neck and was soon safe on

the log once more.

“Thank you, my brave old

dog,” said John to Watch.
