and took no end of pains with me.
"Then there was Norman; he
might have turned round and said at his age he could not be troubled with a raw boy from
the plow-tail, but he was like a father to me, and took no end of pains with me."
This quote is from the book 'Black Beauty' by Anna Sewell. I guess this phrase "took no end of pains with me" may mean he did his best to help him. Am I right?
