PERAMBULATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 13 October 1870

PERAMBULATLOR.. I rarely dabble in religious matters, rny "forte" being anything else than that of drawing a long countenance. 14y religion, I flatter myself, takes more of a practical than a theoretical turn, and, without profess, iog to, adhere strictly to the teachings of the Good Book, about which we betimes hear so Smuch, I have sufficient charity not to assail my neighbours and etdetwvour to. scan Sdalize them by asserting publicly they are on the, high and broad road to perdition. PerhapsI am wrong for living thus quietly, and that my energies and abilities should be constantly directed towards pointing out to I benighted individuals the errors of their way. Perhaps it may be said, that, however far my zeal in a good cause would lead me, ho,wever hurtful to the feelings of othera nay actions may be, the quality and character of the work is sufficint excuse, and that, though I f may meet with rebuffs from men, the reward which I shall reap,hereafter must more than compensate f...
