Tom Lefroy Quote of the Week 26

A splendid Regency dinner
Since we are in the midst of a Thanksgiving Day weekend here in the United States, I thought it appropriate to see what Tom had to say on the subject.  So, I quote from page 370 of the "Memoir of Chief Justice Lefroy".
His habitual dependence on God's providence and love may be traced in his invariable practice of calling us all together for united prayer or thanksgiving on each occasion or separation or re-union.  I do not recollect his ever leaving home to attend Parliament, or for his judicial duties on Circuit, without assembling the members of his family to ask for God's assistance and blessing upon the discharge of his own duties, and committing to his care and guidance those from whom he was parting.
Those words portray a Tom Lefroy of deep feelings both Christian and loving for his family.  How could you not love someone like that?
I wish for all our readers a Happy Thanksgiving!
Yrs aff'ly,
Linda the Librarian
