Summary
"The Bible addresses our intellect and feelings by examples, just as our senses yield us, item by item, all the sensible knowledge we acquire. The Author adopted the. same method in his epistolary intercourse with his sons and daughters while they were at school and college, avoiding general propositions, and making every letter yield some specific mental or moral instruction pertaining to the moment, till, in a long course of years, the aggregate letters include topics as diversified as human conduct from youth to manhood. They were written with no expectation of publicity, and, in arranging them for the press, an attempt has been made, with, however, only partial success, to place in juxtaposition all communications pertaining to the same period of life;--an order which is somewhat impaired by the original division of the matter into Apologues and Breviats, and the obvious propriety of placing together each species of composition irrespective of its tenor. From the letters everything has been omitted not necessary to the main design. They discuss topics which in neither matter nor manner are drawn from other books, and, as they were designed to educate the intellect rather than to indoctrinate it, they may be useful for such an end, to the old as well as to the young; every new thought being an increase of knowledge"--Preface.
