[158] say ‘Evil, be thou my good.’ Yea, these are the men whom the people delighteth to honor; to whom the Churches and ministers of God in this land bow down, proclaiming: ‘verily success is divine; and Might it maketh right; and the Power of this world, it shall be God unto us.’ And while the grave of heroic Truth and virtue has no other memento than the humble stone placed there by a feeble woman's hand; pompous monuments of succeesful wrong affront the skies with their altitude, ‘calling evil good and good evil, and putting darkness for light and light for darkness.’ We fear that when Truth shall re-assert herself it will go ill with this generation.
