They weren’t influen tially around when the Declara tion of Independence was pro claimed and the U. S. Constitu tion given, but they remain among the great authorities of government—m oral statesmen who keep on directing the way of human life as given in the Com mandments and in the prophets.” I was talking tough to her but she didn't seem to mind. The cocktails had mellowed her and she was feeling tolerant of me. “I should tell you something,” I said. “You as their descendant are scarcely worthy of your an cestors.
