A KNIGHT OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY
[Illustration: "WOULD HE NEVER LOOK UP?"
Knight XIX Century _Frontispiece_]
THIS BOOK IS REVERENTLY
DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY
OF MY HONORED FATHER
He best deserves a knightly crest,
Who slays the evils that infest
His soul within. If victor here,
He soon will find a wider sphere.
The world is cold to him who pleads;
The world bows low to knightly deeds.
