Her young husband was as happy as she; for he was doing his whole duty, he worked early and late at his handicraft, his bread was honest bread well and fairly earned, he was prospering, he was furnishing shelter and sustenance to his family, he was adding his mite to the wealth of the nation
. By consent of a treacher- ous law, instant destruction fell upon this holy home and swept it away!
We remember the forest-dwellers, the first temples, the adherence to the first type, and the decoration of it as the wealth of the nation
increased; the value which is given to wood by carving led to the carving over the whole mountain of stone of a cathedral.
