Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1858 edition. Excerpt: ...that find them, and health to all their flesh.' 'Keep thy heart with all diligence.' 'For out of it are the issues of life.' 'Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left; remove thy foot from evil.' Our readers know where these instructions are to be found. There are many more in the Guide-Book, equally plain and valuable; and if it be any inducement to them to search those out, we may remind them, that along with the instructions there are many delightful histories of former travellers, and many encouraging words for those who follow the guidance of the Author; for-an mann as are left tg tlje Spft'tt at (c)oft, tfjen arc tfje Sons of ffioft.' 'Like mist on the mountain. Like ships on the sea, So swiftly the years Of our pilgrimage flee. In the graves of our fathers How soon we shall lie. Dear children, to-day To the Saviour Jly.' A WINE FABTY. Man's Work. I Have shown you a picture of the beautiful living vino as it grows; full of strength and sweetness; yielding its pleasant shade, and its ripe fruit for our use; a thing of beauty, and a blessing. That is God's work. Look now on this picture. Here, too, you see the frnit of the vine; here is the juice of the rich purple grape; but in a different form. Those bottles and glasses, now nearly empty; those chairs overturned; that young man fallen beneath the table; the rest with flushed faces, and dress soiled and disordered--all show there has been what is called, a wine party. Cards lie upon the table and the floor; that young man, who would never consent to play at games of chance.show more
