Jackson, Helen Hunt: Bits about Home Matters. V1. 7 May 2009
Anyone who thinks that all of our joys and sorrows unique to our age need only read this series of short, wonderful essays.
Not long ago a Presbyterian minister in Western New York whipped his three-year-old boy to death, for refusing to say his prayers. The little fingers were broken; the tender flesh was bruised and actually mangled; strong men wept when they looked on the body; and the reverend murderer, after having been set free on bail, was glad to return and take refuge within the walls of his prison, to escape summary punishment at the hands of an outraged community. At the bare mention of such cruelty, every heart grew sick and faint; men and women were dumb with horror: only tears and a hot demand for instant retaliation availed.
'Bene legere saecla vincere'.
'To read well is to master the ages' [Prof. Issac Flagg]
