The Soul of Dominic Wildthorne by Joseph Hocking

“Mr, Wildthorne,” said Maggie, “have you fulfilled the promise you made me the last time we met?”

“What promise?”

“You promised me that you would read an authoritative life of Luther, an authoritative history of the Reformation.”

“Did I? Oh, yes, I remember. But why should’ I? I have read a great deal of Church history.”

“Yes; but you admitted that you had not read an authoritative life of Luther; that you only read such books as spoke of him as a Philistine and a clown, and which regarded the Reformation as the result of an appeal to the mob. Besides, you promised.”
