They are exposed to many temptations which never trouble the poor, and as a matter of fact the wealthiest classes of English society are at this moment the most immoral and the most miserable. There are many delightful exceptions. Such men as the late Lord Shaftesbury and the late Lord Cairns amply proved that representatives both of our most ancient and of our most modern aristocracy, may be among the most devout and the most Christian of mankind. There can be no question that when wealth, rank, leisure, and influence are thus associated with intense devotion to Christ, such men are the true "aristocracy" of the country.

In the same way the educated ought to be the objects of Christian compassion and effort, quite as much as those who are uneducated. There is a great deal in the influence of modern culture which tends to destroy the hopes and blight the lives of young men and young women.
