Text:

Truth is one of the rarest. Many a youth has been lost in society by allowing falsehood to tarnish his character and foolishly throwing truth away. Honesty, frankness, generosity, virtue- blessed traits. Be these yours, my boys, we shall not fear.- You are watched by your elders. Men who are looking for clerks and apprentices have their eyes on you. If you are profane, vulgar, saloon going, they will not choose you.- If you are upright, steady, industrious before long you will find good places, kind masters, and the prospect of a useful life before you.
