They who cannot weave a uniform web, may at least produce a piece of patchwork.

GUESSES AT TRUTH, ii. 2.

DEDICATED,

IN TOKEN OF MANY YEARS' FRIENDSHIP,

of the following have been already published, in jurse of the last quarter of a century: but for the

part in such a manner as to ensure their being lily forgotten. I now venture to tie the sticks together-in the e that the faggot may float a little longer on the face of the stream of Time; and that here and there the volume passages may be found which some may em useful or interesting.

I have made a few additions, but no omissions or ulterations. In the earlier parts will be found opinions, anticipations, suggestions, which, precarious when made, have been proved futile by the course of events. But. that the fallibility of the writer should receive these additional illustrations, is not material ; and the record of them may supply a few contributions to the History of Error.
