    The Dog and the Limited, Moving Picture

    The Dog and the Limited, Moving Picture

    William E. Barton (1861-1930) wrote parables where he called himself Safed the Sage. Barton was a Congregational minister, and we wrote many books and is especially noted for his books on the life of Abraham Lincoln.
    The stories I read from William E. Barton are now all within the public domain and can be freely downloaded via the Library of Congress site.
    In this podcast, I read The Dog and the Limited, and Moving Picture.
