lose all embellishment; leaving the present nothing but a dreary and savage waste; almost as terrifying to the imagination, as a cavern full of serpents.

Death, on the other hand, presenting to our acceptance oblivion for the past, and a beautiful perspective for the future, is “the nightingale flowerof existence: when, therefore, it does arrive, may we, in the soundness of our reason, still retain the fervour of our hopes, and reap the harvest of our thoughts. Then shall we hail the sacredness of its coming, as a weary pilgrim hails the sun's blushing orb behind the temple of Jerusalem !-Let us then, my Lelius, endeavour to divest ourselves of that fear of death, which afflicts the imagination of men so powerfully; and, throwing off the trammels of association, let us accustom ourselves to regard it, as an instrument of emancipation from a frail and anxious being; as the only means of renovating our youth; and as a translation to perpetual joy.
