Slide 1
Introduction with Title
Slide 2
On the top of the cliff a group of fishermen were standing near the gate
Slide 3
'The Almighty help you, Pete,' said Bluffy, giving him the flowers
Slide 4
'Love,' he said, bending down to her, laying the blossom on her pillow
Slide 5
After a brief prayer there was silence in the room
Slide 6
'Are you watching the weather, Bluffy? Will it keep fine till morning?'
Slide 7
'Well, the glory of the sky just now is splendid'
Slide 8
'Is it good-bye, Daddy? Are the boats ready?'
Slide 9
'Mebbe not,' he said, still gazing out into the dim light
Slide 10
Down upon the shore an anxious crowd had gathered
Slide 11
'They are heading towards the shore,' cried a voice from the cliff
Slide 12
'Is 'em all safe? Is my daddy's boat safe ashore?'
Slide 13
'Hello! What's up, little one?' he asked in a cheery voice
Slide 14
In dread silence the watchers waited
Slide 15
That same night Gilly crept softly to Bluffy's side
Slide 16
The old man's lips quivered into a smile as he caught sight of the little figure
Slide 17
'Forgive my intrusion,' she said, stopping short in front of them
Slide 18
'What is your name?' he asked, seating himself in the armchair
Slide 19
'Yes, it is true,' was the quiet reply, 'he was saved'
Slide 20
'So there you are, my flower,' said Bluffy
Slide 21
The old man put his arm round her and drew her close to his side
Slide 22
And Bluffy looked into the upturned face of the little girl
Slide 23
Then, crowding together still more closely, she pressed down the pier
Slide 24
'Come home with us, mate,' said Peter, helping him to rise
Slide 25
'Home!' Peter uttered the word with a deep drawn breath
