Friday Afternoon Cigar

We enjoyed a Rocky Patel Sun Grown, our favorite, while we read Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution, by Nathaniel Philbrook. This book just came out last month, and it is hard to put down.

P. 142, Reverend William Emerson, in a sermon one month before the Lexington-Concord fight:
...a consciousness of having acted up to the principles of our religion... when we go forth to battle will be a most comfortable antidote against fear and cowardice, and serve to stimulate us to the most heroic actions.
