Опис:

The relation of the rich to the poor, and the poor to the rich, has always been a subject of interest to the philosopher, moralist, economist, and philanthropist. This relation was, in feudal times, clearly enunciated, and as vigorously acted upon. The dark days and long evenings that witnessed the tolling of the curfew bell have passed away. Since those days we have made advances in social and political freedom, and class distinctions have become less obvious. Freedom of thought has developed a greater equality of social rights; but are the poor really any better off now than they were in the days when William hunted in the New Forest? I confess that many will reply in the affirmative; but when I see around me on every side so much disease, poverty, utter wretchedness, and crime, I conceive it difficult for the condition of man to be worse than that in which thousands in this metropolis exist. Look at the condition of the overcrowded dwellings of the poor; they are not homes. The word home in its full and happy significance and association is unknown to them. The proud boast of every Englishman, that his house is his castle, is a mere fiction. “There is no place like home, be it ever so humble,” is a truth that meets with the faintest response from thousands of miserable tenants who live in yet more miserable tenements.
