But Charles thought his aunt needed him. So Mr. Wood told Charles to call at his house and he would give him a dollar and some good books, and he also offered to send Charles to school. Charles replied that he would refer the matter to his aunt. She was agreeably disposed, and he called on Mr. Wood and got the books. No doubt he got the dollar also, though that is not mentioned. Better still, his benefactor arranged to have him go to school, and " He was so good a boy and learned so fast that Mr. Wood sent him to college."
