First sentence: "Once on a time a poor beggarly boy, who used to carry matches about the streets, was met by a very rich and worthy Gentleman, who observing his hollow eyes, his sallow looks, and his bent body, as well as the extreme filth with which he was covered, was touched with such compassion for the lad, that he was disposed to render him some Effectual Relief; and accordingly the gentleman dropt a hint, that he had a mind to do something considerable for him."
