Excerpt from Jacob Elthorne: A Chronicle of a Life

I was named Jacob, it seems, after my uncle. It is quite a good name, there is no fault about the name that I know, yet it was the bane of my life as a boy, with not a little of awkwardness attaching to it thereafter. I have never, it is true, been able to summon my soul to any overpowering admiration for the most notable wearer of that name. Nor can I think that his personality was so overpoweringly undesirable that all others whom an unkindly parentage have given to bear the name should thereby be compelled to find it a shirt of Nessus about their shoulders.

The selection of this fortuitous opprobrium is the more difficult to understand as neither of my parents seem to have been at all that kind of person. To a superficial observer my mother might have been the responsible agent. She may possibly have been so. But from my memory of her, that dear soul was quite a different sort of person. She had, it is true, a religious zeal of an absorbing order; or rather, not a religious zeal so much as an ecclesiastical activity, which is not quite the same thing: but this was the only outlet for an exuberant personality, where other and less harmless activities might have been turned to.
