Excerpt from The Thomas Book, Giving the Genealogies of Sir Rhys Ap Thomas, K. The Thomas Family Descended From Him, and of Some Allied Families
The inheritance of a good name and the memory of the noble deeds of our forefathers, or merely of their simple honesty and their se... lf-respecting labour for daily bread, must have its in¿uence on our lives. Nob/e555 oblige, if not misapplied, is a true principle, and one of special value to our American civilization, which is too apt to measure every thing by the yardstick of commerce, and to value a man by his present possession of material wealth, quite irrespective of his ante cedents. These cannot be known unless they have been recorded in some permanent shape. Left to be handed down by tradition or popular report, they will soon be forgotten.
