Description
Preface: This work was begun, soon after the appearance of the Young Man?s Guide?and was partially announced to the public. For reasons, however, which I have not room to give in this place, it was thought proper to defer its publication till the appearance of several other volumes in the same spirit, involving more particularly the relative duties.
