Finding a Fortune by Horatio Alger

The Tin Box and What it Contained

ILLUSTRATED - .  Fifteen year old Harry Gilbert worked in a grocery to support his widowed mother, but lost his job to the storekeeper's relative. In addition, Harry suffered insults from a wealthy family due to his impecunious state. After escaping a trick trap set by his tormentors, Harry discovers a tin box that changed his life. Aka: The Tin Box and What it Contained.  He becomes the target of Philip Reed, the son of a wealthy Colonel, who continually antagonizes Harry. Meanwhile, Philip’s own relative, Obed Wilkins, comes to visit the Reeds. They treat him poorly, thinking him penniless. But Harry’s family shows Obed respect, inviting him into their home.  Philip, anxious to get even, lures Harry into the woods and ties him up. Harry manages to escape, and on the way home stumbles upon two hoodlums burying a tin of government bonds. Suspecting that the bonds are stolen, Harry alerts a detective to their presence and receives a monetary reward in bonds.
Meanwhile, Philip Reed has stolen a different set of bonds from his father to pay back his own debts. He implicates Harry in the crime, and Harry must prove his innocence, despite the fact that his recently acquired bonds show up in a search of his family’s property.
