See that no animal of any kind, whether
entrusted to thy care, or coming across
they path, suffer they neglect or abuse.
Let no hope of profit,
no compliance with custom,
and no fear of the ridicule of the world,
ever tempt thee to the least act of cruelty
or injustice to any creature whatsoever.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.
~Reverend Humphrey Primatt, d. 1790
