The Last "Crusade" of Mirabeau B. Lamar 163
1859. On the threshold of death Lamar might have uttered
the words of Jacopone da Todi, a thirteenth century "crusader:"
It seems a strangely little thing, this life, when it is
done. One thinks to do so much, and he does so little,
and that little is so strangely compounded of blindness
and good intent and much effort and much thwarting,
and in the end is a watch in the night.17
