Joe Thompson, the wheelwright, was sympathetic to the poor child Maggie. When everyone deserted the place leaving the sick child alone in the house, Joe said to the blacksmith’s wife, “It’s a cruel thing to leave her so.”
 
Unlike the others, Thompson had some tender places in his heart, in spite of his rough exterior. So he took Maggie to his home, overcoming the fear of his “vinegar-tempered wife”. He also directed Mrs. Thompson to treat her with kindness.
