If you look at a map of theW orld, you will see, in the left-hand upper corner of theE astern Hemisphere, two islands lying in the sea. They are England andS cotland, and I reland. England andS cotland form the greater of these I slands. I reland is the next in size. The little neighboring islands, which are so small upon the map as to be mere dots, are chiefly little bits of Scotland broken off, I dare say. in the course of a great length of time, by the power of the restless water. In the old days, a long, long while ago, before ourS avior was born on earth and lay asleep in a manger, these Islands were in the same place, and the stormy sea roared round them, just as it roars now. But the sea was not alive, then, with great ships and brave sailors, sailing to and from all parts of the world. It was very lonely. The Islands lay solitarw in the great expanse of water. The foaming waves dashed against their cliffs, and the bleak winds blew over their forests; but the winds and waves brought no adventurers to land upon the I slands, and the savage I slanders knew nothing of the rest of the world, and the rest of the world knew nothing of them. It is supposed that the Phoenicians, who were an ancient people, famous for carrying on trade, came in ships to these islands, and found that they produced tin and lead; both very useful things, as you know, and both produced to this very hour upon the sea-coast.
