Excerpt from Henry Acton, Vol. 1: And Other Tales Bodies, of an obscure town of England, as amidst the dwellers of its court and capital? Human passions, bad and good, work in these less aris tocratic scenes as busily as they do with those who give laws to nations, guide in holy council, or pilot the helm of state intrigue. Do not ima gine that, with the inferior ranks of life, ignorance generates sympathy, or seclusion produces inno cence: the causes of excitement may degenerate, but passion exists with equal strength, and Ope rates with equal force, in both stations; and if man, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks as make the angels weep, or, like Queen Mab, with wiles so closely bound, performs such strange manoeuvres as waking reality doubt ing asks, if such things may be the living acts of mortals? We are not to deem that such acts are alone the performances of the high and lofty ones of the world. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
