Overview

"[...] Mr. Cuffney (after a further pause, stroking his pipe): I suppose there's no doubt about the message they'll bring?
Mr. Stone: No, that's settled right enough. It'll be an invitation. That's as sure as John Brown's dead.
Mr. Cuffney: I could never make Abraham out rightly about old John. One couldn't stomach slaving more than the other, yet Abraham didn't hold with the old chap standing up against it with the sword. Bad philosophy, or something, he called it. Talked about fanatics who do nothing but get themselves at a rope's end.
