"The little Strangs ..." comments of Samuel Butler

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
The little Strangs say the "good words," as they call them, before going to bed, aloud and at their father's knee, or rather in the pit of his stomach. One of them was lately heard to say "Forgive us our christmasses as we forgive them that christmas against us."
