The influence of these old walls will prevent men, if anything can, from becoming the tools of corruption or tyranny. “Recall every day one good thought, read one fine line,” says the German Shakspeare. Yes; let every man's daily walk catch one ray of golden light, and his pulse throb once each day nobly, as he passes these walls! No gold, no greed, can canker the heart of such a people. Once in their hands, neither need, greed, nor the clamor for wider streets will ever desecrate what Adams and Warren and Otis made sacred to the liberties of man!
