'Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty to judge both the quick and dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen.'

THIS BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE SOCIETY'S JUBILEE MEETING

IS DEDICATED BY

THE EDITORS.

PREFACE.

A WORD or two may perhaps be necessary as to the form in which this book is cast.

The exigencies of the subject, and not any thought of imitating Peacock, Helps, or Mallock -far less Christopher North, Bunyan, or Plato -absolutely dictated the conversational style.

The Paradoxical Society is a real and living power, well known far beyond its membership; and the Editors have to record with gratitude the assistance rendered to them by various members of that body in the compilation of this little volume.

October, 1878.
