Mr. Beecher is a remarkably handsome man when he is in the full tide
of sermonizing, and his face is lit up with animation, but he is as homely
as a singed cat when he isn't doing anything.
What a pity that so insignificant a matter as the chastity or unchastity
of an Elizabeth Tilton could clip the locks of this Samson and make him
as other men, in the estimation of a nation of Lilliputians creeping and
climbing about his shoe-soles.
Henry Ward Beecher
