Description

Excerpt from The Studies of Nature, to Which Are Added the Indian Cottage, and Paul and Virginia, Vol. 3 of 3: With a Memoir of the Author, and Notes Critical and Explanatory Fenelons, and many other illustrious men, who, in every country, have devoted their vigils to the welfare of their fellow-citizens. The only solid objection that can be al legad against me is my inability. But I have witnessed much injustice; I have myself been a victim of it. The images of disorder have excited in me ideas of order. Besides, my errors will serve to display the sagacity of those who shall correct them. If I present but one single useful idea to my prince, whose bounty has hitherto sup ported me, though my services have gone unrewarded, I shall obtain a recompense the most precious; if I may flatter myself with having dried the tears of some unhappy being, at the latest moment of life this recollection will wipe away my own.
