The novelty of an American gentleman's gift and trust to an English house of worship that is part of the official church - and the ability to act through it as a charitable aid to the people of England - is such an extraordinary phenomenon that publishers have ventured to provide the public with the details so completely relying on the faith and veracity of the Church of England in printed form.
It is gratifying to see how faithfully the descendants of old English families in the United States continue to honor their ancestors to their fatherland.
This testifies to the right spirit on their part, which should be diligently cultivated on our part.
So, while they claim the privilege of participating in the glory of English celebrities - her warriors, poets, orators, and writers - we can also claim a similar right to the heroes and distinguished people of their noble country, who came from our loins, and whose land in their settlement was part of our empire.
If this fraternal feeling were recognized and enshrined in any legitimate honorable form, it would be a new and noble act for either side.
I loved this book. I didn't want to put it down.
