Excerpt from Charles Francis Barnard: A Sketch of His Life and Work

Whether the story of any enterprise in religious philanthropy is worth the telling hinges mainly on a single point: Was the enterprise a simple repetition of what had been done a hundred times before, or was it fruitfully original in character? Were its inspiring ideas seminal?

When, for example, Charles L. Brace founded in New York his Newsboys' Home, he planted an organic seed, and that in as literal a sense as the wheat or maize the farmer sows in his field. To start one more Sunday-school, in which to try to make on the little waifs of the street a few fleeting impressions, as speedily to vanish as the dew under the glare of the sun, was no object of his.
