You never heard of Dan’l Gregg, I don’t suppose: but sav,
I want to tell you there are few as great as him today;
He never held.no offices, but just ’twixt me and you.
Ain’t this here holdin’ office something great men seldom do?
Xo. Dan'l he just farmed it—licked along through thick and thin— Quittin’ late and startin' early, meetin’ trouble with a grin;
He didn't leave no millions, but again 1 wish to state
That, in my opinion, Dan’l should be numbered with the great.
He never done no fightin’ on the land ror on the sea;
He wasn’t no Xapolcon nor a Grant, nor vet a Lee;
Xo doubt this Pierpont Morgan could have skinned him in a trade. And as far as eddycation is concerned, why, I’m afraid That Dan’l wasn’t hardly what veu’d call A number one.
For he got his schoolin' mostly out beneath the shinin’ sun;
The papers never bothered over Dan’l Gregg’s affairs.
But a great man had departed when he clum the golden stairs.
He never wrote no poems, nor got up inventions, so
The world would move on swifter than the good Lord made it go:
He couldn't preach a sermon nor ckspound the law to you,
But ho raised two boys, by golly, that were decent thru and thru. He taught ’em to be honest, and he taught ’em to be true;
He taught ’em to be manly, and that there’s a lot to do.
He raised his boys to honor him. and so 1 wish to state That, in my opinion, Dan'l shculd be numbered with the great.
What constitutes a state? Xot high raised battlements nor martial armament, but men. clean men, brave men and true.
As a monument to any man’s memory there's no sort of comparison between a future for children to waste and children who are a fortune in themselves. The debt of Georgia is not to the Elis who raise up children after the build of Haphui and Phineas, but to the Cornelias whose sons are not less the “jewels” of their mother than the real ornaments of the state.
We will take our chances on the orators and statesmen of the coming decade if God will send Georgia in every voting precinct a Dan’l Gregg.
“Who’ll raise two boys, by golly, who are decent thru and thru.”
—Editorial in the Atlanta Georgian.
