THE STORY'S CONTEXT
This is the story of Asaph Perry. It
is one of normal dimensions. He was not a famous figure from political
or military history. Nor did the circumstance of his life thrust
him to the forefront. Asaph (or W. A. as some called him) was a
typical man from a small southern town
who, with his wife Ethel, worked hard to
raise and support a family. There are no statues built to honor
him, nor are there stories to dishonor him. He is strikingly average
which (ironically) makes him worthy of our attention. Of course,
there are plenty of interesting and unique things about Asaph, if
only that he occupies our attention at this time and place.
