Witch Hunt
THE REVIVAL OF HERESY

By CAREY McWILLIAMS

It is with the saints here as with the boughs of trees in time of storm. You shall see the boughs beat one upon another as if they would beat one another to pieces, as if armies were fighting; but this is but while the wind, while the tempest lasts; stay awhile, and you shall see every bough standing in its own order and comeliness: why? because they are all united in one root; if any bough be rotten, the storm breaks it.

JEREMIAH BURROUGHS

Boston

Little, Brown and Company 1950
