| Now, why will a man, when he gets to be
a thousand years old, go on hanging around the women, and taking chances
on fire and brimstone, instead of joining the church and endeavoring, with
humble spirit and contrite heart, to ring in at the eleventh hour, like
the thief on the cross? Why will he?
- Letter to Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, December 5, 1863
What, Sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would
be scarce, sir, almighty scarce.
and Irene Gerken -- at the Princess Hotel in Bermuda. (Irene Gerken identified by her granddaughter, Irene Harlow.)
