Excerpt from Philo-Socrates: A Series of Papers Wherein Subjects Are Investigated Which, There Is Reason to Believe, Would Have Interested Socrates, and in a Manner That He Would Not Disapprove, Were He Among Us Now, Gifted With the Knowledge, and Familiar With the Habits and Doings
P. You may be reckoned among the fortunate boys of this world; and I will tell you why I say so. Your appearance bespeaks that you are taken care of at home. Unhappily, there are many children of your age who are ill provided with the food, clothing and shelter essential to a healthy and cheerful existence. Your coming here bespeaks, that the elders under whom you are placed have obtained your confidence. It is sad to think how many children there are who have neither confidence in their elders nor capacity to guide themselves.
How happens it that you are thus fortunate among children? You have parents who love you, and who are able to provide you with suitable food, warmth, and protection. This, as you know, is not the case with all children. Some are orphans, some neglected and abandoned by their parents. While there are others, whose parents plead inability to supply their children's wants.
