Sunshine Bill, according to the worlds notion, was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth- but he had, which was far better, kind, honest parents. His mother kept an apple-stall at Portsmouth, and his father was part owner of a wherry- but evenMoreSunshine Bill, according to the worlds notion, was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth- but he had, which was far better, kind, honest parents.

His mother kept an apple-stall at Portsmouth, and his father was part owner of a wherry- but even by their united efforts, in fine weather, they found it hard work to feed and clothe their numerous offspring. Sometimes Sunshine Bills father was laid up with illness, and sometimes his mother was so- and occasionally he and his brothers and sisters were sick also. Sometimes they had the measles, or small-pox, or a fever- and then there was the doctor to pay, and medicine to buy- consequently, at the end of these visitations, the family cash-box, consisting of an old stocking in a cracked basin, kept on the highest shelf of their sitting-room, was generally empty, and they considered themselves fortunate if they were not in debt besides.

Still, no one ever heard them complain, or saw them quarrel, or beat their children, as some people do when things do not go straight with them- nor did their children ever fight among themselves. Even, indeed, in the worst of times, Sunshine Bills mother managed to find a crust of bread and a bit of cheese, to keep the family from starving. To be sure, she and her husband could not give their children much of an education, as far as school learning was concerned. They themselves, in spite of all trials, were never cast down- and they taught Bill, and his brothers and sisters, to follow their example.

They said that God had always been kind to them, and that they were sure He would not change while they tried to do their duty and please Him.
