PREFACE.

The present times may not inaptly be thought by some, to exemplify the fable of the Dog and his Bone. Amidst all our boasted progress, they will be disposed to question whether we are not seeking shadow, and losing substance. It occurred to me that a few truths would not be unseasonable, and if they are not useless, one of my objects will be gained.

Colchester,

June, 1854.
