18mo. 40 cents. "In this book meet two great minds, each tried long, known well, clear, calm, and strong. It cheers the heart when there is so much strife, and so free & use of harsh words, to see men like those whose names are at the head of this piece, write in a tone so kind, and so apt to turn the price of strife. But, though its tone be kind and calm, its style is not the less strong. Each brings to bear all that a clear head and a sound mind can call forth. When two so strong minds meet, there is no room for weak words Each word tells--each line bears with weight on the main point-cach small page has in it more of thought than weak mon crowd into a large book."--Correspondent of National Intelligencor.
