Stephen Crane

Tradition, thou art for suckling children

Stephen Crane was an American politician from Elizabethtown who was a delegate to the Continental Congress from 1774 to 1776.






Tradition, thou art for suckling children,
Thou art the enlivening milk for babes;
But no meat for men is in thee.
Then --
But, alas, we all are babes.
