Approximate date based on uniformity with other chapbooks in this "series"; cf. discussion of dating problems in Davis, R., Kendrew of York, p. 43 ("The best that can be said... is that they were published between c.1815 and James Kendrew's death in January 1841). Gumuchian gives date of circa 1830.
Illustrates the good boy at school: "When a good boy is at school, he minds his book, and tries to learn to spell and read well. The boy that minds his book shall have praise; but he that will not learn must feel the rod."
