Excerpt from Stories for the Whole Family, Young and Old, Male and Female
Properly speaking, this little work consists of two parts, the first having been more particularly designed for the amusement and instruction of children. The second part comprises a variety of hints, (some of which are rather broad it is true, ) designed to entertain the mind, as well as improve the morals and correct the habits of youth; the privilege being extended to heads of families to read, either for pastime or for profit, should they discover a motive so to do. Truth is gene rally salutary in its effects, when uttered in a proper manner, and with just motives, even though it appear to be tinctured with a little severity.
