Excerpt from The Works of Henry Mackenzie, Esq., Vol. 6 of 8
In the earliest periods of life, ridicule is naturally employed against reason and propriety. - The child who obeys its mo ther, who is afraid of its governess, who will not be concerned in little plots to deceive b... oth, 1s laughed at by its bolder and less scrupulous companions. At every age, reason and duty are grave and serious things, in which ridicule finds a contrast that renders her attack more easy, and her sallies more poignant.
