Daniel Berkeley Updike, 1860–1941, founder of Boston’s famed Merrymount Press, a specialized commercial printshop where common work was done uncommonly well. He wrote this essay at a time when destruction and disorder dominated the news and civilization seemed to be falling apart. Yet Updike’s tone is one of stubborn resolve and optimism. Originally published in 1941 under the title “A Last Word.”
