Excerpt from Metaphors, Similes and Other Characteristic Sayings of Henry Ward Beecher
Other volumes of this series are in course of preparation, with the following titles: Auto biographical Reminiscences Biographical Sketches; Remarks on Preaching; Rights and Duties of Women; Advice to Young People. The Management of Children, Birds and Flowers Pictures and Music Miscellaneous Selections.
Each chapter in the present volume bears the same title as the discourse from which the ex tracts it contains have been taken.
The admirable and rare likeness of Mr. Beecher chosen for the frontispiece is now published for the first time.
In selecting the materials for this book I have had the advice and assistance of Dr. Homer B. Sprague, whose personal acquaintance with Mr. Beecher, and familiarity with the great preacher's literary productions, and whose long experience as an educator, author and lecturer, have been such as to eminently qualify him for the work.
This little volume is offered to the public in the earnest hope that its wholesome teaching will find a lodgement in the hearts of those who may peruse its pages, and aid and strengthen them in their search for that which is highest and best.
