Excerpt from Lincoln King's Poems
And if it soothe one aching heart, Or cool a single burning tear, the author's work will not have been in vain. They, who find naught in the work to praise, and whose souls be unmoved by the simple strains, will please be sparing of adverse c... riti cism, and be not hasty to condemn, but let the little messenger go on its way unmolested, and let it do, if it can, the work dt signed for it. They, who recline in the lap of Prosperity, cheered by Fortune's fickle smile, may, on the morrow, tread the depths of adversity. Then who will need, more than they, words of com fort and inspiration? Therefore, let not the prosperous scoff at any balm ofi'ered to the uh fortunate and the oppressed, for of the day and the hour knoweth no man when he will mourn, and lend a willing ear to the comforter.
