The great trust between man and man is the of trust of giving Cousell. For in the other confidences men commit parts of their life; their lands, their goods, their children, their credit, some particular affaire; but to such, as they make their Counsellours, they commit the whole: by how much the more they are obligated to all faith and integrity. The wisest Princes need not thinke it an diminution to the greatnesses, or derogation to their sufficiency, to rely upon Counsell. God himelfs is not without; but hath made it one of the great names of his blessed Sonne; The Counsellor. ...Principis est virtus maxima nosse suos... The true composition of a Counsellor, is rather to be skilful in their master's business, then in his nature; for then he is like to advise him, and not feed his humours. -Francis Bacon The Effayes - Of CounsellWe picked up a leather bound copy of this, by Easton Press, along with a copy of Donne's poetry and Moby Dick for K. We also got a few old copies of other books - Boswell's biography of Samuel Johnson and some sermons. It was a delightful, productive hunt...one I am sure we'll repeat as soon as our pocketbook rebounds. Have you gleened from this post, that if you ever visit Nashville, you should make the trip to Ellingston Place to find Elder's - you should - you definately should.
