Excerpt from The Matter of Manner
The power of manner is greater than appears on the surface. The sympathies of youth are soon traced by watching the operation of their imitative faculties; how so'on they acquire the expressions, the gestures, the smiles, and.the manners of those with whom they associate, especially if their affections have been called into play! The sotto voce appeal in a pathetic peroration, the tear accompanying the recital of a tale of distress, the manly and heroic enunciation that properly illustrates a martial stor the appearance of indignation at a bare allusion to oppression, gravity accompanying rebuke, every look, every attitude, if consistent with the time, place, and circumstances, will call forth a response in the hearts and manifestations of those to whom! They are addressed.
