Mrs. George Reece

by
 To this generation I would say:
Memorize some bit of verse of truth or beauty.
It may serve a turn in your life.
My husband had nothing to do With the fall of the bank -- he was only cashier.
The wreck was due to the president, Thomas Rhodes, And his vain, unscrupulous son.
Yet my husband was sent to prison, And I was left with the children, To feed and clothe and school them.
And I did it, and sent them forth Into the world all clean and strong, And all through the wisdom of Pope, the poet: "Act well your part, there all the honor lies.
"
