And when the middle of the afternoon came, from being a poor poverty-stricken boy in the morning, Tom was literally rolling in wealth.

"When they are flying away with my purse," he replied suggestively, "they will be flying away with little of what could be called my ancestral wealth." "You are natural rogues," said I, "you and Jem Bottles. And you had best not be talking of religion."
