We would like to Trace the cause of this death to proper source and show what part other and older persons played in the tragedy but if Dis Grace such As his course evidently portended did not suffice to arouse the willing and passive agents of this soul s destruction we have no Hope of reaching the chords of feeling should we show thut cause.
