All the children laughed heartily at Master Woggs, who was so very modest!
"None of these boys and girls have ever been to New York," added Tommy, his vanity increasing every moment.
"That is very true; and perhaps the children will select you as their leader."
"They can do as they like. If they want me, I should be very willing to be their leader," replied Tommy.
It was very clear that Master Woggs had a very good opinion of himself. He seemed to think that the fact of his having been to New York made a hero of him, and that all the boys ought to take off their caps to him.
But it is quite as certain that the Riverdale children did not think Master Woggs was a very great man. He thought so much of himself, that there was no room for others to think much of him.
The committee of three returned in a few minutes, and reported the names of four boys to be voted for as the leaders. They were Henry Vernon, Charley Green, David White, and Tommy Woggs.
