Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ...Is he out of danger even while under his mother's care? Will she guard him from Satan and sin? Will she pray for him to God, as she entreats the doctor to do all to save him for her? Will she, perhaps, poison his soul or lead him in unhealthy ways, where his spiritual life is sure to sicken and fade?

The world looks very fair and bright, when we see it after we thought we were done with all its good things. It has all the fresh charm of novelty and all the charm of old associations. Friends are glad to greet us, and the work and joys of the world M ait for us. Very few there are who do not fall.
