Little Henry and His Bearer by Mary Martha Sherwood
Little Henry was raised in India by his bearer, a servant who takes care of children. He was taught the Hindu religion until a missionary lady from England taught him about Jesus Christ, and he embraced salvation wholeheartedly. When she left she told him, by God's grace, to try to bring his bearer to Christ. It wasn't until Henry was on his deathbed, at 8 years old, did his bearer come to Christ. This narrative was very popular in the early 19th century and reportedly sold numerous editions and was translated into many languages.
