Forging Ahead by Horatio Alger

The Fortunes of a Young Janitor

ILLUSTRATED - .  A humble school janitor makes an enemy of an arrogant student whose rich father determines to get him fired, but he is vindicated in the end. Aka: Andy Gordon; or The Fortunes of a Young Janitor.  Unable to afford classes, Andy Gordon subsidizes his education by taking care of the school-house. One day, Andy’s mother receives a letter from her wealthy uncle, Simon Dodge, who asks for help in extricating himself from a situation. His daughter, Sarah, had married a man named Jeremiah Brackett. Later, Sarah died and Brackett remarried. His new wife is ill-tempered, and the two of them, after ten years and four children, are pressuring Dodge to make a will, bequeathing them his entire estate.
Andy selflessly agrees to help his uncle and, under the assumed name of Henry Miller, is hired by Brackett to work on the farm. Once there, Andy must use his wits to uncover Dodge’s scheme, risking Brackett’s retribution.
