- Perambulating in St James' Park
What a wonderful letter, building up that eloquent and touching final paragraph.
Yes, I always thought it made the whole tragedy even more poignant. It's difficult for people to appreciate nowadays the mindset of the 15thC. That God was creator of the universe was unquestionable and Kings really did have appointment by Providence. The civil war tore families apart because of these beliefs, father against son, brother against brother and friends vs friends. People get the impression the war had opposing sides with little common ground, the sad truth is this wasn't always the case.
