THE

ESSAYIST:

A

YOUNG MEN'S MAGAZINE:

EDITED BY GEO. W. LIGHT.

The musician may tune his instrument in private, ere his audience have yet assembled;
the architect conceals the foundation of his building beneath the superstructure. Bui
an author's harp must be tuned in the hearing of those, who are to understand its after
harmonies; the foundation stones of bis edifice must lie open to common view, or his
friends will hesitate to trust themselves beneath the roof.---THE FRIEND.
