To be admitted to such a hearth,  warmed by the crinrson flame of charily- and household affection, sbright with  the sparkle of grnycty and rarer flash  of wit, illumined by the glow of  thought and clear light of sincerity,  beautiful with courtesy, forbearance  and refinement, its atmosphere vital  with the oxygen of moral purity and  open to currents of fresh ideas, adorned by culture and social amenity and  securely.: built upon righteousness and  iiith, is moral regeneration as well as  happiness and rest. Whether rich or  poor, with' many or few inmates or only one, any hearth may -breathe this  borne spirit, while to come home to  somebody in such n'.haven is the best  nnd most lasting of earthly joys.���������Alax-  wpII Grav.
