whose education and general mode of thought had been such as to unfit 

them to appreciate it; but it was hoped that persons of more thoughtful 

and unbiased minds would receive the work kindly, and would readily 

co-operate with the publishers in its circulation. This anticipation 

has been more than realized. Wherever the book has been introduced, 

it has met with a warm reception; and of the several thousand persons 

into whose hands the work has been placed, hundreds have gratefully 

acknowledged the benefit which they have received from its perusal, 

and it is hoped that a large proportion have been greatly benefited. 

 

The cordial reception which the work has met from the press everywhere 

has undoubtedly contributed in great measure to its popularity. The 

demand for the work has exhausted several editions in rapid succession, 

and has seemed to require its preparation in the greatly enlarged and 

in every way improved form in which it now appears. The addition of 

two whole chapters for the purpose of bringing the subject directly 

before the minds of boys and girls in a proper manner, adds greatly 

to the interest and value of the work, as there seemed to be a slight 

deficiency in this particular in the former editions.
