There is a biblical command and purpose to education children, particularly young men. But it is missing today in America. I write what follows, not from the lofty vantage point of sterling success, but rather the bittersweet mixture of success mixed with much failure.
The more we fix our hopes on the recompence of reward in the other world, the more free and liberal shall we be of our earthly treasure upon all occasions of doing good.
