King Alfred of England

by Jacob Abbott

Oh, Rev. Abbott. You are not a very good writer, and you are a terrible historian. But you\'re absolute tops at racism! Keep on doing what you\'re good at!

I have a real fondness for 19th century \"literature\", so I found this history of the birth of the great Anglo-Saxon nation to be charmingly goofy. I\'m also white, which undoubtedly made it easier to stomach.
