ad, Naught but a hideous Name! At last!--(ungloom, stern coffined frown! Rest thee, Gray-Steel!--aye, dead Renown! In flame and thunder by field and town The Giant-Horror is going down, Down to the Home whence it came!) Deaf to the Doom that waits the Beast, Still would ye share the Harlot's Feast, And drink of her blood-grimed Cup! Pause!--the Accursed, on yon frenzied shore, Buyeth your merchandise never more!

Suppose that you, like Sodom and Gomorrah, Were brought to judgment. Could you show A record clear of malice, avarice, and pride, Bigotry, intolerance, and grievous things beside? --Missour
