BY

GEO. HENRY PREBLE,

Capt. V. s. n.

" The same that a man wins himself is best

That he may call his own; honors put on him
Make him no more a man than his clothes do,
Which are as soon ta'еp off ; for in the warmth
The heat comes from the body, not the weeds ;
So man's true fame must strike from his own deeds." MIDDLETON.
