On Tracts

"Tracts might be read once, or not read at all and thrown away. They might be preserved simply for the inspection of the clergyman or the visitor on his subsequent rounds. And, being paper, an immensely large number of tracts must have gone to light fires or to serve baser but more vital domestic purposes which religious writers would understandably not care to mention." -- R.K. Webb, The British Working Class Reader
