John Fairfax
newspaper proprietor
1804 - 1877

 

When a young member of his staff told John Fairfax that he was studying the bible, Fairfax replied

"That's right, my boy, that's right! To learn what great things God has done for mankind in the past, read your Bible. And to learn what He permits to be done today, read the Herald."
