Rain had fallen in the night, and the air was still fresh and cool. Although the clock had but just struck six, I had been at work an hour, and now that my uncle, Seth Upham, had come down to take charge of the store, I was glad that some business discussed the evening before gave me an excuse to go on an errand to the other end of the village. Uncle Seth looked up from his ledger as I passed. You are prompt to go, said he. Ive scarce got my hat on the peg. Well, the sooner the better, I suppose. Young Mackay slast shipment of oil was of poor quality and color. The rascal needs a good wigging, but the best you can do is tell the old man my opinion of his sons goods. If he gets a notion that we re likely to go down to nine cents a gallon on the next lot, he 11 bring the boy to taw, Ill warrant you. Well, be gone. The sooner you go, the sooner youll come, and we re like to have a busy day. I nodded and went down the steps, but turned again and looked back.
