The narrator recalls his adolescence.
His old nurse Peggotty's niece Emily fled away with his best friend Mr. James Steerforth, leaving her fiance behind.
Peggotty's elder brother Mr. Peggotty has sought for her niece Emily after her leaving.
At length, he found out her niece.
Chapter 50 Mr. PEGGOTTY'S DREAM COMES TRUE
.................................
He gazed for a few seconds in the face; then stooped to kiss it - oh, how tenderly! - and drew a handkerchief before it.
'Mas'r Davy,' he said, in a low tremulous voice, when it was covered, 'I thank my Heav'nly Father as my dream's come true! I thank Him hearty for having guided of me, in His own ways, to my darling!'
[David Copperfield by Charles Dickens]
I'd like to know what role "of" plays here.
Thank you in advance for your help.
