John G. Lewis on Education and Trust

“I wants my children to be educated because then I can believe what they tells me. If I go to another person with a letter in my hand, and he reads it, he can tell me what he pleases in that letter, and I don’t know any better. I must take it all for granted; but if I have got children who read and write, I will hand them the letter and they will tell me the contents of that letter, and I will know it’s all right, as he says it.”2
