A Child of the Jago, by Arthur Morrison

TO
ARTHUR OSBORNE JAY
VICAR OF HOLY TRINITY, SHOREDITCH

. . . Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! . . .

Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar:

Say unto them which daub it with untempered mortar, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.

Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? —

Ezekiel xiii. 3 . . . 10 12.
