Excerpt from Gunn's Household Physician, or Home Book of Health: Forming a Complete Household Guide
Virtue; it has a salutary Operation on our moral constitution, and prepares us for the rewards of obedience. Death is a departure from the present scene; and we have good reason to conclude that with respect to those who have acted virtuously here, it is a transition to a more exalted state of being. No virtuous person, then, has reason to complain; the vicious ought to direct their murmurs and complaints not against the Author of their existence and their enjoyments, but against their own follies and perversity, in often disobeying the die tates of reason and conscience, and so forfeiting that happiness and health which the bountiful Creator has placed within their reach.
