Excerpt from Recollections of Old Country Life: Social, Political, Sporting, and Agricultural
It is a fine thing for a great house whose history has been preserved. It makes one weep to think how our middle-class people neglect their genealogies, so that they know nothing of their own people, and have no pride, and learn no lesson from the past. Cannot something he done, my friends? Can we not write the annals of our own generation? Each of his own family, so that whatever the fate of our children and grandchildren, they, too, may feel that they have ancestors who lived, and loved, and hoped, and made a little success, perhaps, and died, and were forgotten, as they, too, in their turns shall die Generally the women of the house keep up its memories, not the men. That matters nothing, if they were true to their name and its ambitions.
