Excerpt from The Golden Sunset, or the Homeless Blind Girl
I was born in the county of Galway, Ire land, in the year 1839. My father's family was rich; my mother's respectable, but in reduced circumstances, and for this reason his friends opposed his marriage with her. But he... cared nothing for their opposition; with the idol of his heart by his side, he could brave frowns, displeasure and stern fortune's will. He married her and went out into the world a penniless man.
Her father gave him a farm to take care of, and as he was industrious an;1 economical, God smiled upon him and blessed his labors. Soon he was able to build a house on it, and from a desire to show his friends he could get along without their assistance, he spent more money than was necessary.
