In all her education Helen has been put in communication with the best minds, with the best literature. She has known no other. Her mind has neither been made effeminate by the weak and silly literature, nor has it been vitiated by that which is suggestive of baseness. In consequence her mind is not only vigorous, but it is pure. She is in love with noble things, with noble thoughts, and with the characters of noble men and women. It is not a possible condition for most of us in the world, but, nevertheless, the experiment of her education is very suggestive. If children in the family and in the public schools were fed with only the best literature, if their minds were treated with as much care in regard to the things sown in them as our wheat fields, what a result we should have!...
