"One Sunday, she happened to walking in Russell Square, at some distance from Mr. Osborne's house...when all the bells of Sabbath were ringing, and George and his aunt came out and go to church; a little sweep asked for charity, and the footman who carried the books, tried to drive him away; but Georgie stopped and gave him money."
