Out of the Mouths of Babes

A story is told by the Bishop of Bath and Wells of a schoolboy who in an essay on how England obtained her colonies wrote :—
Now I will tell you how England obtains her colonies. First she sends out her missionaries. They look about for the best land. When they have found it they call the people to prayer, and when their eyes are fast shut, up goes the Union Jack.
