From the Religious Press

Courtesy has been well defined as "doing a kind deed in a kindly way." The last part of this definition is quite as important as the first part. It is not enough to have a kind heart and a benevolent disposition, it is not enough to give alms and to do deeds of charity. The courteous man is more than kind, he is also kindly. The rough, gruff, overbearing philanthropist, who throws out his charities to the needy as he would pitch a bone to a dog, is not a model of kindliness, however largehearted and generous he may be.

Abraham is a capital illustration of genuine courtesy in his entertainment of the angels who, unannounced and unheralded, in the garb of ordinary wayfarers, presented themselves at his tent door.
