And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
Dr. Blair, at the conclusion of a sermon in which he had descanted with his usual eloquence on the loveliness of virtue, gave utterance to the following apostrophe: "O virtue, if thou wert embodied, how would all men love and imitate thee." His colleague, the Rev. R. Walker, preached that afternoon, and took occasion to say, "My reverend friend observed in the morning that, if virtue were embodied, all men would love and imitate her. Well, virtue has been embodied; but how was she treated? Did all men love her? Did they copy her? No! She was despised and rejected of men, who, after defaming, insulting, and scourging her, led her to Calvary, where they crucified her between two thieves."
