The Mansion
By Henry Van Dyke
With Illustrations By Elizabeth Shippen Green


The Mansion is about John Weightman, an important man with substantial influence and power. Among other things, he has funded the building of one school, three small churches, and a wing of the hospital. He is proud of the recognition and respect he has attained through his many good works. One night, he has an argument with his adult son, who would like to give some money to a friend with a life-threatening lung condition. John Weightman thinks it a poor investment since there is no guarantee the young man will live, and even if he does, he may or may not amount to anything which will further the reach of John Weightman's good name. After the argument, John falls into a troubled sleep where he finds himself traveling on a road with a large group of people who are being taken to the mansions that have been prepared for them. John is the last one to reach his, which turns out to be a humble shack in a desolate field. He is indignant since he has lived such an honorable life. But he learns that it is not just his actions but his motivations for those actions that count in the grand scope of eternity.
