Who is this Man?
Now and then, in the pages of
the Clarion, I run a biographical
quiz, under the heading of "Who
Is This Man?" For instance . . .
"He was one of the earliest lov
ers in American history...
"And yet he was too shy to court
a woman outright...
"He came to the New World on
"A cooper to repair the beer bar
rels accompanying the Pilgrims...
"Who is this man?"
I thought that everybody was
stumped. But not Ma Hoskins, who
returned the clipping to me with
"John Aldcn" on it. She recognized
all the clues including that refer
ence to "beer" and "cooper."
For Ma who's read her history,
knows that beer as the bcveraRe
of moderation, is as old in this land
of ours as the never-ending Ameri
can search for tolerance which
brought the Pilgrims over to this
country in the first place.
