His skill went 'little beyond half-soles heel-taps and patches. 'Those who. willine' to encourage Thomas ventured to order from him a new pair of boots or shoes never repeated the order.- That would'have been carrying- their1 good wishes for his prosperity rather too far. As intimated the income of Thomas Claire was not large. Industrious though he was the amount earned proved so small that his frugal wife always lound it'-insufficient for an adequate supply for the wants of the family which consisted of her husband- herself and three children. It cannot be de- nied however that if Thomas had cared less about his pipe and mug of ale the supply of bread would have been more liberal. But he had to work hard and must have some self-indulgence. At least so he very conclusively argued. ...
