It is not always that an author can find a title which exactly agrees with the contents of his book. My present choice, whether happy or not, is at least appropriate in this respect—that my pieces, whatever may be their subject, all contain some direct or indirect appeal to the reader, made in a friendly spirit. I covet more to build up than to pull down ; to encourage than to admonish ; but whether engaged in doing the one or the other, my appeals will be always found of a friendly character. In addressing my reader I have spoken to my own heart, and never more so than when using the language of reproof. He who would serve others with his lips, should be faithful in his remarks, and he who would have friends “ must show himself friendly."
