Alienation, Evils of
Nothing presents a more mournful aspect than a family divided by anger and animosity. Unhappily, however, this is not a very rare occurrence. We even behold at times, brothers themselves so indifferent towards each other, so wanting in affection, or even in a state of such hostility among themselves that they appear as if they had been cherished by the same fond heart only to be divided by their tastes and manner of thinking. Often they are less obliging to one another than they are to persons whom they know not.
