And Other Addresses (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from And Other Addresses All of this happened, after my uncle's Objection, in my infancy - protesting that I ought not to have the same name as his son, as it would cause confusion in years to come. To this my father is said to have replied, laughingly: Why, they may not be within a thousand miles of each other when they grow to manhood. In our childhood, our parents and their two families, with ten children between them, spent one entire winter together under my father's roof, comfortably and happily, in a house with but eight rooms including the kitchen. Let parents with but one or two children, who feel cramped in modern nine or ten-room houses, ponder this problem to their profit.
