Excerpt from The Pending Conflict Between the Masses and the Classes: A Protest Against Greed, Inhumanity, Tyranny and WarI have long looked anxiously forward to the time when I could make pilgrimage to our country's noted historic shrines to write my long contemplated national oem, America. I would pitch my tent near Plymouth Rock and at Valley orge, and I would visit all the battle-fields oi the Revolution, seeking inspiration on the grounds where the sacrifices were made by our fathers for our liberty. But I have now reached the threshold of the fifty-third year of my life and I may not live to realize this my long cherished hope. But our country will not lack patriotics poets better qualified to do justice to the great theme than I to themes less ambi tious. The most magnificent country on earth will produce sublime poets to sing her greatness. My mission is to go before, as an humble pioneer of American song in the trans-mississippi valley, to prepare the way for the approach of the grand army of truly democratic poets, and the little measure of success won by me, in these early and unpropitious times, will, I trust, afford no little encouragement to those who shall follow after, in a later and more auspicious day.But the primary object I have in' View is not, I trust, seli is not to vindicate my claim to recognition as a great writer. My desire is to do an humble partinl the mighty work that cannot be stayed, for the improvement of the social condi tion of mankind. -i would make it good for children to be born, by making it the supreme object of legislation to bless the little ones. No great revolution is needed to perfect our social state, only the carrying out in good faith the doctrine of equality, voiced in the Declaration of American Independence, by the inauguration of a few simple reforms founded on the Golden Rule.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
