THE TWIN SISTERS; or, the ADVANTAGES
1 OF RELIGION. By the Author of Addresses of an Affectionate Mother, &c. &c.-Price 38. 6d. bound.
Mrs. Trimmer, in her “ Guardian of Education," vol. v. page 70, recommends this Book in the following terms:
“ We cannot well give an outline of this book, without anticipating the pleasure which young readers will experience, in the perusal of the story; but, as we wish to invite their attention to it, we will insert the Preface.
“ The following work is intended to display the benefits of devotion, which are illustrated in the lives of two very young persons, whose pursuits were, not the vanities of the world, but the true and lasting pleasures of religion and time well spent.'
“ There are few, even of those who do not study to live by its rules, that are not willing to acknowledge the
efficacy of religion, in the hour of death, or on a bed of sickness ;- though they are inclined to put off all thoughts of it till that awful period. But in this short history will be seen, (and the truth of the illustration may be perceived by general observation,) that if the duties of a Christian profession are not attended to in our lives, its support and consolations in those trying scenes cannot be felt either by the dying, or by their surviving friends.
“ This important truth has, no doubt, been osten enforced on many of my young readers, and in a way more large and comprehensive than in this simple tale : yet, as after having observed a charming view of Nature reflected in a mirror, where each object, though lessened to our sight, is distinctly seen, and bears its due proportion to the whole, we are still inclined to survey the scene itself, and perhaps with more accurate attention than before; it is hoped that this feeble attempt to exemplify the satisfaction arising from a religious life, will not therefore be altogether useless or unentertaining.
