Forgive the Reporter,
When we consider that Hudson
did not discover New York Bay, but
that Verrazzano did; when we con
sider that Fulton did not invent the
steamboat but that Fitch did; when
we consider that Bell did not in
vent the telephone; that Morse did
not invent the telegraph: Gutenberg
did not invent the printing press;
that Morton did not discover anaes
thesia; that Darwin did not discover
evolution; that Shakespeare did not
write "Hamlet;" that Homer did not
write the Iliad; that Galileo did not
say Ana still it moves; mat Wel
lington did not say "Up, guards, and
at them;" that Washington did not
win the battles of the revolution:
that Robespierre did not create the
reign of terror, that Nero was not a
monster, that Cleopatra was not
beautiful - when we reflect that his
ory is emblazened with the titles
of usurpers and that true merit lies
unchronicled in the grave, let us
address a word or two of apology
to that much berated enemy of the
truth, the newspaper. If history,
with a thousand years leisure at
her disposal, cannot find out just
who set up a new throne or pulled
down an old one, let us forgive the
reporter if he misspells the Chris
