American actress and playwright Jennifer Leighton, with Loyalist leanings at the start of the story, has a desire to make it big in London and so wants to ingratiate herself with General John Burgoyne, British soldier and playwright. Laughing until my stomach hurt and then feeling completely broken while reading, I was riveted throughout.

d while they did not comprehend the personality and attri butes of the Supreme God, as did Moses and the Hebrew prophets, yet they did not attribute anything to mere chance. They did not have protoplasm or evolution working up man, by some inherent power or process, from a brainless worm into the likeness and image of God. With them nothing transpired without the presence and agency of a deity, and although they had a presiding divinity for each object in the heavens above and in the earth beneath, yet each of these deities was with them a very God. The idea ofa supreme divinity, though vague and fabulous, nevertheless impressed itself upon their architecture-an architecture which remains, in its essential features, unrivaled. Each creation of architectural order and beauty 'in their minds came out from a brain fired with the idea of a God. This conception, in the Grecian mind, of the idea of a supreme divinity lay not only at the foundation of cv ery conception of order and harmony, of grandeur and beauty, of proportion and adaptability, in the mind of a Grecian archi tect, but in the minds'of all others as well. It lent its charms to Grecian sculpture and painting. It was the soul and inspi ration ofgrecian eloquence, and poetry, and music. This sug gests to us a valuable lesson for our learning as public speak ers. Now, by way of contrast, I ask what conceptions of grandeur or beauty could protoplasm have inspired in the mind of a Grecian master in the arts? What additional charms could protoplasm have imparted to the eloquence of Grecian orators?

In this they may well, shame who so often isolate our God and put Him at a; tance during our devotions, and thereby deprive our the inspiration resulting from immediate contact.
