Chapter XVIEdit

The Bishop of Eardly “was diligent in preaching, -- moral sermons that were short, pithy, and useful. He was never weary in furthering the welfare of his clergymen. His house was open to them and to their wives. . . . He laboured at schools, and was zealous in improving the social comforts of the poor; but he was never known to declare to man or woman that the human soul must live or die for ever according to its faith” (133). #Facility with Language #Literacy
