The Elves And The Shoemaker

By Itellyouastory

There was once a shoemaker, who worked very hard and was very honest:but still he could not earn enough to live upon; and at last all he hadin the world was gone, save just leather enough to make one pair ofshoes.

Then he cut his leather out, all ready to make up the next day, meaningto rise early in the morning  to his work. His  conscience was clear andhis heart light amidst all his troubles; so he went peaceably to bed,left all his cares to Heaven,  and soon fell  asleep. In the  morningafter he  had said his prayers,  he sat himself  down to  his work;when,  to his  great wonder, there stood the shoes all ready made, uponthe table. The good man knew not what to say or think at such an oddthing happening. He looked at the workmanship; there was not one falsestitch in the whole job; all  was so neat and true, that it was quite amasterpiece.
