" Laden with seaweed from the rocks.
“ Ever drifting, drifting, dritting,

On the shifting
Currents of the restless main,
Till in sheltered coves and reaches

Of sandy beaches,
All have found repose again.
“Ever drifting, drifting, drifting,

On the shifting
Currents of the restless heart,
Till at length in books recorded,

They like hoarded
Household words no more depart.”

PREFACE:

THESE papers and fragments may prove as interesting and instructive, as they may be easily and rapidly read.

Allusive throughout to great :social, literary, moral, and religious questions, they may, peradventure, fix what is evanescent, and turn to lasting usefulness what might otherwise be overlooked or forgotten. Combined with instruction, the author hopes the reader will find that interest which illuminates with a welcome ray of sunshine the pregnant questions and the stirring events

common-place age, and turns instruction into pleasure, and a useful repast into a delightful refreshment.
