Strana 12 - let blockheads read what blockheads write." But I find these novels corrupt the morals of our females, and engender hardness of heart to real distress. Those most pleased with fictitious distress, have hearts as hard as iron. If they are pleased with one who relieves fictitious distress, the reality ought to please...
Strana 64 - Adler, that so little has been accomplished in the way of educating the public to sound and full appreciation of the evil consequences of child labor, and it is especially humiliating to know that the District of Columbia, the seat of the national government, is the only community with the exception of Georgia, Idaho, Nevada and the Indian Territory, which is at present without legislation of some kind on the subject of child labor.
Strana 14 - Yes, if they repent; I would not only take them into my house but unto my bosom. I would wipe the tears from their eyes — I would soothe their sorrows, and support them in the trying hour. I would divide my last morsel with them. For those who would not repent — if they were hungry, I would feed them; if they were naked I would clothe them; and much more, if they were sick I would minister unto them; I would admonish them and I would then have done. What did our Saviour? I would not revile them....
Strana 36 - Member — a few of them are behindhand in their subscriptions, but the fault is not theirs; it was owing to Sally's sickness. Others again, have paid us from two to six dollars. Our printer is a poor man. We have only thirty-one cents in the world, and for the first time since we have resided in this city — thirty-one years...
Strana 27 - I shall make a proposition to my friends in Congress to have the whole scene painted and put in the rotunda of the Capitol with our national paintings, reserving a conspicuous place for myself.
Strana 2 - RoyalPs lifespan stretched from George the Third to the political rise of Abraham Lincoln. Her personal history is more closely intertwined with, and more analogous to, the growth of our republic than that of any other woman of whom record is preserved. Her courage deserves remembrance. At a time when a narrow, and now obsolete, theology reigned almost supreme in the United States, Ann Royall dared to think her own thoughts and proclaim them from the housetops — often, it must be confessed, in...
Strana 28 - The sound Presbyterians gave thanks, and I requested the Marshall, the next time I was tried, to summon twelve tom-cats instead of Bladensburg men. ' ' Although Mrs. Royall showed herself game to the end of the farce, she was really much shaken by the trial. The ordeal was a great strain for a woman of her years. She was never quite strong again. The ignominy seared deep. Her enemies had won. Henceforth, Anne Royall would go branded. Even a modern book dealing with past Congresses, says of her: '...
Strana 13 - As I lingered behind the party thinking of my own negro children, the little things here flocked around me, and as they were looking up into my face, eager to be caressed, I discovered the traces of tears on some of their cheeks. The sight pierced me to the heart. Oh, Slavery, Slavery! Nothing can soften thee, thou art slavery, still...
Strana 36 - Second, that Washington may escape that dreadful scourge, the cholera. Our third prayer is (and these were Anne Royall's last printed words) that the UNION OF THESE STATES MAY BE ETERNAL." Quietly, almost painlessly, old Mrs. Royall died the first day of October, 1854. The world had run by her. Washington papers announced her death only by the following curt notice : "Yesterday morning, the first inst., Mrs.
Strana 64 - It is with singular satisfaction that I announce to you the completion of the survey of the four lines comprehending the Territory of Columbia. These lines are opened and cleared forty feet wide; that is, twenty feet on each side of the lines limiting the Territory; and in order to perpetuate the work, I have set up square milestones, marked progressively with the number of miles from the beginning on Jones's Point to the west corner; thence from the west corner; thence from the north corner to the...
