Excerpt from The Art of Being Happy: From the French of Droz, 'Sur L'art D'etre Heureux;' In a Series of Letters From a Father to His Children; With Observations and Comments In a word, I do not offer the text, as an exact translation, but as the only treatise within the compass of my reading, which has discussed the pursuit of happiness, as a science or an art and as one which has advanced more elo quent and impressive sentiments upon the subject, than I have elsewhere met. With the slight alterations, which I have made, I have found this book to meet my own thoughts; and I have laid out of the text all phrases and passages, which spoke otherwise. I have availed myself of the words of another, because they have expressed my own views better than I could have hoped to express them myself. This explanation will be my reply to'all remarks, touching mistranslation, or liberties taken with the author.

Excerpt from Debate on the Evidences of Christianity, Vol. 1 There is a charm in the number three, to which authors, philo Sophers, poets, and divines are not insensible. Every sentence of a rhetorical cast must have three members, and every noun substantive requires three adjectives to make it expressive, elegant, and sonorous. Hence the good old style of having a preface, introduction, and dedi cation prefixed to every volume. With the first. And second of these we may dispense, as the first speech Of each disputant is a sort Of preface and introduction for himself. And were I to think Of a dedication of this volume, I would be constrained to dedicate it to the whole human family, if I were to be guided by the grand prin ciples of that diffusive benevolence which the side of the question on which I stand suggests. But were I to imitate the inventors of dedications, and select some person to whose auspices I could con sign this book, I should be unable to find any one individual to whose pre-eminent virtues I could exclusively inscribe it. But, if either the urbanity, hospitality, and public spirit of a particular city; or, if the orderly behaviour, and christian deportment, Of any one congregation, made it necessary for a publisher, such as I am, to inscribe a volume in commendation of one, or other, or both, the city of Cincinnati, and that congregation which for eight days patiently attended upon the discussion, would present claims which neither logic with all its rules Of reason, nor rhetoric with all its arts of persuasion, could set aside. But again, something whispers in my car, if any seven reasons would justify the inscription of this work to any seven gentlemen, to the exclusion of all other persons, for any special attentions paid to the cause, the parties, and the public, the Honourable Judge Burnet, Major Daniel Gano, Colonel Francis Carr, Rev. Timothy Flint, Rev. Oliver Spencer, Henry Starr, Esq. And Colonel Samuel W. Davis, are entitled to it for their attention and dignified manner in which they presided over this discussion. But as there are so many considerations presenting rival calls upon my pen for a special dedication, I must either depart from Old usage or take some comprehensive, all-embracing sweep, and dedicate it to every saint and sinner inte whose hands it may fall.
