A Christmas Greeting.


From a Northern Star-Group to a Southern. 1889-'90.

WELCOME, Brazilian brother—thy ample place is ready; A loving hand—a smile from the north—a sunny instant hail! (Let the future care for itself, where it reveals its troubles, im- 
Ours, ours the present throe, the democratic aim, the acceptance  
 and the faith;)
To thee to-day our reaching arm, our turning neck—to thee  
 from us the expectant eye,
Thou cluster free! thou brilliant lustrous one! thou, learning well, The true lesson of a nation's light in the sky, (More shining than the Cross, more than the Crown,) The height to be superb humanity.
