Excerpt from Charlie Codman's Cruise a Story for Boys Charlie Codman turned out of Washington into Bedford Street just as the clock in the Old South steeple struck two. He was about fourteen, a handsome, well-made boy, with a bright eye and a manly expression. But he was poor. That was evident eugh from his clothes, which, though neat and free from dust, were patched in several places. He had a small roll of daily papers under his arm, the remains of his stock in trade, which he had been unable wholly to dispose of. Some of my readers may kw that the Latin School and English High School are kept in the same building. At two o'clock both are dismissed.
