"Tom, Tom, they are goin to smash this door open! Hurry up and come down!"
Tom was a strong, well-built man and he came down and put his big body against the door and said:
"Now, youngster, you go on with your game. All the rioters in Leicester can't break this door open when brother Tom stands against it!"
"And so," said Mr. Meyer, "the devil often wants to come back into this house of mine, and I am afraid of him and when he comes along and swears he will take me by force, I go to the foot of the ascension ladder and cry":
"Christ, Christ, stronger than the strong man armed, make haste and come down! The devil is going to get me!!"
"And He seems to come," said Mr. Meyer, "like the lightning flash and puts himself against the door of my heart and all hell can't break the door open."
