With the anniversary of her death approaching, Dad is worse than ever, drinking steadily and many nights so drunk he mistakes Nicole for her mother. All Dad wants is one more night with his wife to say goodbye. In a desperate act of love to save her dad, Nicole dons Moms best dress and lets her father love his wife one last time. ----- Excerpt ----- My attention turned to the feeling of dad tugging on the tie around my neck. I felt it loosen and the top of the dress loosen. His hand came around to the front and grabbing the top of the dress, smiled, As good beautiful as this dress is, I know whats underneath is even better. He pulled the top down and I moaned when my small breasts sprang free. His hand was immediately on my right breast, and I shuddered involuntarily as he fondled my soft flesh. My breast was completely covered by his large hand and like my core I felt my nipple stiffen at the sensation of his palm caressing it. I was breathing hard both from nerves and my body automatically responding to the contact...
Books are as much a part of the furnishing of a house as tables and chairs, and in the making of a home they belong, not with the luxuries but with the necessities. A bookless house is not a home; for a home affords food and shelter for the mind as well as for the body. It is as great an offence against a child to starve his mind as to starve his body, and there is as much danger of reducing his vitality and putting him at a disadvantage in his lifework in the one as in the other form of deprivation. There was a time when it was felt that shelter, clothing, food and physical oversight comprised the whole duty of a charitable institution to dependent children; to-day no community would permit such an institution to exist unless it provided school privileges. An acute sense of responsibility toward children is one of the prime characteristics of American society, shown in the vast expenditures for public education in all forms, in the increasing attention paid to light, ventilation, and safety in school buildings, in the opening of play grounds in large cities, in physical supervision of children in schools, and the agitation against the employment of children in factories, and in other and less obvious ways. Children are helpless to protect themselves and secure what they need for health of body and mind; they are exceedingly impressionable; and the future is always in their hands. The first and most imperative duty of parents is to give their children the best attainable preparation for life, no matter at what sacrifice to themselves. There are hosts of fathers and mothers who recognize this obligation but do not know how to discharge it; who are eager to give their children the most wholesome conditions, but do not know how to secure them; who are especially anxious that their children should start early and start right on that highway of education which is the open road to honorable success.

Foreword Among the many tributes paid to Dr. Simpson at the Memorial Service was the statement that his hymns would be sung, when his books were forgotten. Since his home-going on October twenty-ninth, many of his friends have requested that his poetical writings be collected and published. The committee having in preparation his memoirs found a large number of manuscripts, some of which were in the uncorrected form in which they flowed from the authors heart. Mrs. Simpson and her family have put all of them at our disposal. Selections have been made from these new hymns which, together with some of the gems which have become familiar through the columns of his periodical, The Alliance Weekly, and in the hymnology of our generation, are now given to a wider circle. There remain enough poems for a second volume which we hope will soon be issued. Though literary critics have recognized the poetic genius which is so clearly seen even in Dr. Simpsons prose, he himself disclaimed any natural gift of song. In a letter, written shortly before he ceased his activities, he stated that he never had written a poem in his life until the Spirit of God filled him with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. They came to him on all sorts of occasions on land and sea. Some of the following poems were written in Jerusalem, others on the Red Sea, and still others in the Far East during his first missionary journey; while the fitting conclusion to this volume is Safe Home, written as he neared harbor after girdling the South American continent. Many of his finest hymns were produced under the inspiration of the preparation of his great sermons, and were sung to his own music from manuscript on Sunday mornings in the Gospel Tabernacle, New York City. For years he rarely failed to send his friends a Christmas greeting or New Year message in song; nor did Commencement Day pass at his beloved school, the Missionary Institute, Nyack, without a new Class Song. The last hymn which he gave us, The Whole Bible to the Whole Wide World, was written for the Class of 1919 after he had given up all active ministry. This collection is now sent forth with the prayer that the sound of a voice that is still may be heard by many old and new friends. He has entered the great company of our forerunners in faith, yet in his songs He, being dead, yet speaketh. T he E ditor . Nyack-on-the-Hudson.
