He congratulated himself upon being still the possessor of twenty-five cents in silver. It was not much, but it seemed a great deal better than being penniless. A week before he would have thought it impossible that such a paltry sum would have made him feel comfortable, but he had passed through a great deal since then.

This was a typical Algers story; the protagonist is 'driven from home' by a scheming step-mother who wishes to possess her husband's entire fortune for herself and her own son. In the end good triumphs over bad, the evil step mother is ousted et cetera. The one variation in the story was Mrs. Norris' eccentricity in allowing her cats to eat their dinners at her own table!

Driven from home by a hostile stepmother, Carl Crawford sets out on his own--a difficult journey. Surprisingly charming tale from bygone days. Ignore the hokey style and appreciate this wholesome, honesty-pays, hard-work-triumps tale.
