Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence…
A lady one day, in her husband's absence from home, lost two children by cholera; but she laid them out with a mother's tenderness, and spread a sheet over them, and waited at the door for her husband's return. "A person lent me some jewels," she said, when she met him, "and he now wishes to receive them again; what shall I do?" "Return them, by all means," said her husband. Then she led the way, and silently uncovered to him the forms of his dear children.
