Excerpt from Child-Man in Britain

The tediously constructed edifice of knowledge and culture our children are called upon to build again. But Speedily, with the ease of the practice of their forefathers and fortunately, with the conii dence of a cleared and trodden path. Yet if the stones of the foundations are omitted the wall will scarcely stand, even with added buttresses, and the broader and deeper the foundations the greater the superstructure that can be raised on them. The slower the child's development, the greater his promise the better animal he is at seven, the more promising boy he will be at seventeen. Let him wrestle with mother Earth and subdue what he can of her. Let him be creature, cub, what not of wild vigorous life, Sturdy Of limb, broad of chest, un trammelled by our conventions, learning to master himself in order to master them over which it is said he Shall have dominion. The soil, stones, streams, trees, fruits of the Wild earth, and the things of air and sun that bring them forth are his heritage. Not the tables and chairs, and knives and forks of our manners and perfections. The swift foot, the slide, the leap - the wheeled wagon and the sled are his, not the railway engine and the automobile, though savagely he delights in the black art Of their velocity. The Steep hill is his to climb and subdue, the distance to see over, the nuts and fruits to eat, the Spot of wild ground to camp on, the cave to possess. His instinct is towards and among these things, his delight is to live cavily in a cave, it is of the essence of childhood. Here he kings it and gathers his possessions round him and does his queer cooking.
