PREFACE

ΤΗ

HOUGHTS that come bubbling up may be of no value, and then the sooner they leave the surface the better; but there may be those which show that the water is deep, and therefore may serve some purpose.

In the latter light let me humbly try to put down a few reflections upon the trend of the age in which we live, for the nineteenth century will soon be over. Should these thoughts be worthless or harmful, let them be treated as such; but should they contain a germ of truth, thank not the writer, but the Eternal Penman who gives the power of writing, and bless and pity the falsely-called "Printers' Devils" should these reflections-unworthy though they are-ever pass through the capable hands of the Publishers' Firm.
