And although there should be a statute of limitations for that crime, it seems that those who neither have the actions nor the gait of Christians, pagan or not, will bust us out, unrelenting dues, for another deuce.”

“A stranger came one night to Yussoufs tent,
Saying, Behold one outcast and in dread,
Against whose life the bow of power is bent,
Who flies, and hath not where to lay his head;
I come to thee for shelter and for food,
To Yussouf, called through all our tribes he Good.
This tent is mine, said Yussouf, but no more
Than it is Gods; come in, and be at peace;”
—James Russell Lowell (18191891)
