Book review

Excerpt from The Story of John Greenleaf Whittier, for Young Readers

The Quaker of the Olden Time

The Quaker of the olden time!
How calm and firm and true,
Unspotted by its wrong and crime,
He walked the dark earth through!

The Quaker, with his broad-brimmed hat, his queer, old-fashioned coat, and his habit of saying "thee must" and "thee must not," was not only an honest man, but a good-natured, sensible man as well. The poet Whittier was a good Quaker, as "calm and firm and true" as the Quaker in his poem. He was also fond of children, and his best poems are about children and childhood days.

It is only a little over two hundred years since the first Quakers appeared.
