I have studied to present strong common sense and stubborn facts, in plain unvarnished language. The essays are interspersed with scraps of science, history, and anecdotes; and are intended to bring the reflecting powers of my readers, into pleasing and vigorous action. They inculcate sterling integrity, unyielding virtue, ardent patriotism, active philanthropy, pure benevolence, and universal charity.
If my arduous efforts to alleviate the miseries of my fellow creatures, produced by moral disease, shall be crowned with success, it will afford me great consolation. To raise higher the standard of morals, to promote social order, and to advance the general good of our country; should be the ruling object of all.
The Appendix is deemed an important addition, and should be often read by every citizen of the United States, and in all our schools.
