"The Man of Tyrol"

Andreas Hofer

"The men of Passeyer set out for battle in defence of their country as if they were going to Holy Communion."
Tyrolese proberb, 2-3

"Hofer had a great beard falling on his chest which he had vowed never to cut while a Bavarian remained in Tyrol."
Great Catholic Laymen, John Horgan, New York: Benziger, 1905, 4
