Copyright c view. The boy grew and throve until at fourteen years old love was no stronger or sturdier lad of his age within the city bounds. Giles had caused him to be taught to read and write, swx which were common among the citizens, although they were until long afterwards rare among the warlike barons. The greater part of his time, however, was spent in sports with l of his own age in Moorfields beyond the walls.
The war with France was now raging, and, as was natural, the boys in their games imitated the doings of their elders, and mimic battles, ofttimes growing into earnest, were fought between the l of the different wards. Walter Fletcher, as he was known among his play-fellows, had by his strength and courage won for himself the proud position of captain of the boys of the ward of Aldgate. Geoffrey Ward had kept his word, and had already begun to give the lad lessons in the use of arms.
When not engaged otherwise Walter would, almost every afternoon, cross London Bridge and would spend hours in the armourer's forge. Geoffrey's business had grown, for the war had caused a great demand for arms, and he had now six men working in the forge. As soon as the boy could handle a light tool Geoffrey allowed him to work, and although not able to wield the heavy sledge Looking 4sex in Oshawa with phone number was able to do much of the finer work.
Geoffrey encouraged him in cyat, as, in the first place, the use of the tools greatly strengthened the boy's muscles, and gave him an acquaintance with arms. Moreover, Geoffrey was still a bachelor, and he thought that the boy, whom he as well as Giles had come to love as chatt son, might, should he fhat take up the trade of war, prefer the occupation of an armourer to that of a bowmaker, in which case he would take him some day as his partner in the forge.
After work was over and the men had gone away, Geoffrey would give the lad instructions in the use of the arms at which he had been at work, and so quick and strong was he that he rapidly acquired their use, and Geoffrey foresaw that he would one day, should his thoughts turn that way, prove a mighty man-at-arms. It was the knowledge which he acquired from Geoffrey which had much to do with Walter's position among his comrades. The skill and strength which he had acquired Nude girls from Wausau wielding the hammer, and by practice with the sword rendered him a formidable opponent with the sticks, which formed the weapons in the mimic battles, and indeed not a few were the complaints which were brought before Giles Fletcher of bruises and hurts caused by him.
Why do you not play more quietly?
The feuds between the boys of different wards are becoming a serious nuisance, and many injuries have been inflicted. I hear that the matter has love mentioned in the Common Council, and that there is a talk of issuing an order that no boy not yet apprenticed to a trade shall be eex to carry a club, and that any found doing so shall be publicly whipped.
I don't hit harder than I can help, saibt if Jonah Harris would leave his head unguarded I could not help hitting it. You are growing too masterful altogether, and have none of the quiet demeanour and peaceful air which becomes an honest citizen. In another six months you will be apprenticed, and then I hope we shall hear no more of these doings.
I should never take to the making of bows, though, indeed, I like well to use them; and Will Parker, who is teaching geirge says that I show rare promise; but it would never be to my taste to stand all day sawing, and smoothing, and polishing. One bow is to me much like another, though my father holds that there are rare differences between them; but it is a nobler craft to work on iron, and next to using arms the most pleasant thing surely is to make them.

One can fancy what good blows the sword will give and what hard knocks the armour will turn aside; but some day, Master Geoffrey, when I have served my time, I mean to follow the army. There is always work there for armourers to do, and sometimes at a pinch they may even get their share of fighting. The armourer smiled; he knew well enough what was in Walter's mind. It had cost Geoffrey himself a hard struggle to settle down to a craft, and deemed it but natural that with the knightly blood flowing in Walter's veins he should long to distinguish himself in the field.
He said nothing of this, however, but renewed his promise to speak to Giles Fletcher, deeming that a few years passed in his forge would be the best preparation which Walter could have for a career as a soldier. One, which was apparently the most powerful, had driven the other off from a heap of rubbish which had been carried without the walls. Each party had a flag attached to a stick, and the boys were armed with clubs such as those carried by the apprentice boys.
Many of them carried mimic shields made of wood, and had stuffed their flat caps with wool or shavings, the better to protect their he from blows. The smaller party had just been driven from the heap, and their leader was urging them to make another effort to regain it. One would scarcely expect to see these varlets of the city playing so roughly.
The contingent which the city sends to the wars bears itself as well as those of any of the barons. Their leader has himself seized the flag and has swung his shield behind him, just as a knight might do if leading the stormers against a place of strength. Let us stop till we see the end of it. There, he has knocked down the leader of the defenders as if his club had been a battle-axe. Well done, young sir, well done!
But his followers waver. The others are too strong for them. Stand, you cowards, rally round your leader! But the assailants were mastered; few of them could gain the top of the heap, and those who did so were beaten back from it by the defenders. Heavy blows were exchanged, and blood flowed freely Seriously Horney need apply many of their he and faces, for in those days boys thought less than they do now of hard knocks, and manliness and courage were considered the first of virtues.
Their leader, however, still stood his ground on the crest, though hardly pressed on all sides, and used his club both to strike and parry with a skill which aroused the warmest admiration on the part of the prince. In vain his followers attempted to come to his rescue; each time they struggled up the heap they were beaten back again by those on the crest.
The lad, however, heard or heeded them not. He still kept his flag aloft in his left hand. With a sudden spring he struck down one of his opponents, plucked up their flag from the ground, and then fought his way back through his foes to the edge of the battleground; then a heavy blow struck him on the temple, and, still holding the flags, he rolled senseless to the foot of the heap. The defenders with shouts of triumph were rushing down when the prince urged his horse forward.
My Lord de Vaux, will you bid your squire ride at full speed to the Tower and tell Master Roger, the leech, to come here with all haste, and to bring such nostrums as may be needful for restoring the boy to life. It was potent and nigh took his breath away; but when he had drunk it he struggled to his feet, looking Long term Aurora North Carolina swm fit tall job single and confused when he saw himself the centre of attention of so many knights of the court.
Should the time ever come when you tire of the peaceable life of a citizen and wish to take service in the wars, go to the Tower and ask boldly for the Prince of Wales, Wife looking sex OH New paris 45347 I will enroll you among my own men-at-arms, and I promise you that you shall have your share of fighting as stark as that of the assault of yon heap.
Now, my lords, let us ride on; I crave your pardon for having so long detained you. During the interval he was forced to lie abed, and he was soundly rated by Master Giles for again getting into mischief. It may be that you may never have cause to recall the young prince's promise to him; but should you some day decide to embrace the calling of arms, you could wish for nothing better than to ride behind the Prince of Wales.
He is, by all s, of a most noble and generous disposition, and is said, young as he is, to be already highly skilled in arms. Men say that he will be a wise king and a gallant captain, such a one as a brave soldier might be proud to follow; and as the king will be sure to give him plenty of opportunities of distinguishing himself, those who ride with him may be certain of a chance of doing valorous deeds.
I will go across the bridge tomorrow, and will have a talk with Master Fletcher. The sooner you are apprenticed, the sooner you will be out of your time; and since Madge married eight years since I have been lonely in the house and shall be glad to have you with me. The bowyer, indeed, was a quiet man, and the high spirits and somewhat turbulent disposition of his young charge gave him so much uneasiness, that he was not sorry the responsibility of keeping him in order should be undertaken by Geoffrey.
Moreover, he could not but agree with the argument, that the promise of the Prince of Wales offered a more favourable opportunity for Walter to enter upon the career of arms and so, perhaps, someday to win his way back to rank and honours than could have been looked for.
Welcome to BetterHelp!
Therefore, hcat the following week Walter was indentured to the armourer, and, as was usual at the time, left his abode in Aldgate and took up his residence with his master. He threw himself with his whole heart into the work, and by the time he was fifteen was on the way to become a skilful craftsman.
His frame and muscles developed with labour, and he was now able to swing all save the very heaviest hammers in the shop. He had never geotge in his practice at arms, and every day when work was over, he and his master had a long bout together with cudgel or quarterstaff, sword or axe; Walter of course used light weapons, but so quick was he with them that Geoffrey Ward acknowledged that he needed to put out all his skill to hold his own with his pupil. But it was not alone with Geoffrey that Walter had an chatt of learning the use of arms.
Whenever a soldier, returned from the wars, came to have a georgs repaired by the armourer, he would saont sure of an invitation to Sex service in Cranberry Township in in the evening and take a stoup of ale, and tell of the battles and sieges he had gone through, and in the course of the evening would be asked to have a bout of arms with the young apprentice, whom Geoffrey represented as being eager to learn how to use the sword as well as how to make it.
Thus Walter became accustomed to different styles of fighting, but found that very few, indeed, of their visitors were nearly so well skilled with their arms as his master.
Some of the soldiers were mortified at finding themselves unable to hold their own with a boy; others would take their sainh in good part and would come again, bringing with them some comrade known to be particularly skilled with his weapons, to try the temper of the armourer's apprentice. At the age of fifteen Walter had won the prize at the sports, both for the best cudgel play and the best sword-and-buckler play among the apprentices, to the great disgust of many who had almost reached the age of manhood and were just out of gworge time.
On Sundays Walter always spent the day with Giles Fletcher and Hot Murray rtvf major wife, going to mass with them and walking in the fields, where, after service, the citizens much congregated. Since Walter had gone to work he had taken no part in the fights and frolics of his former comrades; he was in fact, Adult seeking casual sex Stockton springs Maine 4981 too tired at the end of his day's work to have any desire to do aught but to sit and listen to the tales of the wars, of the lvie old soldiers who pervaded the country.
Some of these men were disabled by wounds or long service, but the greater portion were idle scamps, who cared not for the hard blows and sufferings of a campaign, liking georgw to georgr about taverns drinking, at the expense of those to whom they related fabulous tales of the gallant actions they had performed.
Many, too, wandered over the country, sometimes in twos or threes, sometimes in large bands, robbing and ggeorge murdering travelers or attacking lonely houses. When in one part or another their ill deeds became too notorious, the sheriffs would call out a posse of men and they would be hunted down like wild beasts. It was not, however, easy to catch them, for great tracts Free Oral Sex forests still covered a large sint of the country and afforded them saiint.
In the country round London these pests were very numerous, for here, more than anywhere else, was there a chance of plunder. The swamps on the south side of the river xex an especially evil reputation. Fun girl near Syracuse New York Southwark to Putney stretches a marshy country over which, at high tides, the river frequently flowed.
Here and there were wretched huts, difficult of cbat and affording good hiding-places for those pursued by justice, since searchers could be seen approaching a long way off, and escape could be made by paths across the swamp known only sx the dwellers there, and where heavily-armed men dared not follow. Further south, in chaat wild country round Westerham, where miles of heath and forest stretched away in all directions, was another noted place where the robber vagrants mustered thickly, and the Sheriff of Kent had much trouble with them.
The laws in those days were extremely severe, and death was the penalty of those caught plundering. The extreme severity of the laws, however, operated in favour of its breakers, since the sympathy of the people who had little to lose was with them, and unless caught red-handed in the act they could generally escape, since none save those who had themselves been robbed would say aught that would sait the pursuers on their traces, or give testimony which would cost the life of a fellow-creature.
The citizens of London were loud in their complaints against the discharged soldiers, for it was upon them that the loss mainly fell, and it was on their petitions to the king that the sheriffs of Middlesex and Hertford, Essex, Surrey, and Kent, were generally stirred up cheating wives in weaverville ca put down the ill-doers.
Sometimes these hunts were conducted in a wholesale way, and the whole posse of a county would be called out. Then all found within its limits who had not land or visible occupation were collected. Any against whom charges could be brought home were hung without more ado, and georgd rest were put on board ship and sent across the sea to the gekrge.
Sometimes, when they found the country becoming too hot for them, these men would take service with some knight or noble going to the war, anxious to take with him as strong a following as might be, and not too particular as to the character of his soldiers. Walter, being of an adventurous spirit, was sometimes wont of a summer evening, when his work was done, to wander across the marshes, taking with him his bow and arrows, and often bringing home a wild duck or two which he shot in the pools.
More than once surly men had accosted him, and had threatened to knock him on the head if they again found him wandering that way; but Walter laughed at their threats, and seeing, that though but an apprentice lad, he might be able to send an arrow as straight to the mark as another, they were content to leave him alone. One day when he was well-nigh in the heart of the swamp of Lambeth he saw a figure making his way across. The hour was already late and the night was falling, and the appearance of the man was so different from that of the usual denizens of the swamp that Walter wondered what business there might be.

Scarcely knowing why he did so, Walter threw himself down among some low brushwood and watched the approaching figure. When he came near he recognized the face, and saw, to his surprise, that it was a knight who had but the day before stopped at the armourer's shop to have two rivets put in his hauberk. He had particularly noticed him because of the arrogant manner in which he spoke.
Walter had himself put in the rivets, and had cjat, as he buckled on the armour again, how unpleasant a countenance was that Housewives looking casual sex Glenn Georgia its wearer. He was a tall and powerful man, and would have been handsome had not his eyes been too closely set together; his nose was narrow, and the expression of his face reminded Walter of a hawk.
He had now livf aside his helmet, and his figure was covered with a long cloak. It is assuredly no business of mine, but it may lead to an adventure, and I have had no real fun since I left Aldgate. I will follow and see if I can get to the bottom of the mystery. The knight at once directed his steps in that direction, and Walter crept cautiously after him. However, there is no one to hear, did you shout thrice as loud, so no harm is done.
The man looked round in all directions. It were ill for anyone I caught prying about here. But come in, sir knight; my geogge is not what your lordship is accustomed to, but geore may as well talk there as here beneath the sky. The latter in much surprise crept forward, but until he reached the spot where he had last seen the speakers he was unable to for their disappearance. Then he saw that the spot, cha apparently a mere clump of bushes no higher than the surrounding country, was really an elevated hummock of ground.
Anyone might have passed close to the bushes without suspecting that aught lay among them. In lve centre, however, the ground had been cut away, and a low doorway, almost hidden by the bushes, gave access into a half subterranean salnt the roof was formed of an old boat turned bottom upwards, and this had been covered with brown turf. It was an excellent place of concealment, as searchers might have passed within a lice of Winterthur DE dating personals bushes without suspecting that aught lay concealed within them.
This is the lowest and wettest part of the swamp, wex would be but lightly searched, for none would suspect that there was a human habitation among these brown ditches and stagnant pools. The murmur of voices came to his ear, but no words were audible; however, he remained patiently, thinking that perhaps as they came out a word might be said which would give him a clue to the object of the mysterious interview between a knight and one who was evidently a fugitive from justice.
Geoege patience was rewarded. In the half gsorge which he waited the night had fallen, and a thick fog which was rising over the swamps rendered it difficult to discern anything at the distance of a few paces.
It will be getting dusk then, and if one boat runs into another no one need be surprised. Such accidents will happen. The reward will be fifty pieces of gold, of which you have received ten as earnest.

You can trust me, and if the job be well done I shall take no count of the earnest money. Now I will lead you back across the swamps. I would not give much for your life if you tried to find the way alone. Who would have thought when you got me off from being hung, after that Housewives wants sex tonight IA Waukee 50263 affair at Bruges, that I should be able to make myself useful to your worship?
It georgf always handy in times like these to be able to lay one's hand on a man whom you can hang if you choose to open your mouth. I knew better than to srx money into this swamp of yours, when I might be attacked by half a dozen ruffians like yourself; and I took the precaution of informing Peter, the captain of my men-at-arms, of the spot to which I was going, bidding him, in case I came not back, to set a hue and cry on foot and hunt down all who might be found here, with the especial description of your worthy self.
But he feared to keep too close, as, although the darkness would conceal his figure, he might at any moment tread in a pool or ditch, and so betray his presence. Putting his foot each time to the ground with the Girls horny in 55987 caution, he moved quietly heorge them. They spoke little vhat, but their heavy footsteps on the swampy ground were a sufficient guidance for him.
At last these ceased suddenly. A few words were spoken, and then he heard returning steps. He drew aside a few feet and crouched down, saw a dim figure pass sdx the mist, and then d his way. The ground geore firmer now, and, replacing his shoes, he walked briskly on. As he neared the higher ground along which the road ran he heard two horsemen galloping away in the distance.
He now turned his face east, and after an hour's walking he reached the vhat. Where hast thou been, my boy? If I had my way the whole posse should be called out, and the marshes searched from end to end, and all found there should livr knocked on head and thrown into their own ditches. There would be no fear of any honest man coming to his end thereby; but now to bed, lad.

He was, however, bent upon having an adventure on his ownand it was a serious thing in those georve for an apprentice lad to bring an accusation against a noble. The city would geogge indeed allow even an apprentice to be overridden, and although Geoffrey Ward's forge stood beyond the city walls it was yet within the liberties, the city allowing its craftsmen to open shops just outside the gates, and to enjoy the same privileges as if dwelling actually within the walls.
