Equidem, ex omnibus rebus, quas mihi aut fortuna, aut natura tribuit, nihil habeo, quod cum amicitiâ Scipionis possim comparare. In hâc mihi de republicâ, consensus, in hâc rerum privatarum consilium: in eâdem requies plena oblectationis: nunquamillum, ne minimâ quidem re, offendi, quod quidem senserim; nihil audivi ex eo ipse, quod nollem: una domus est, idem victus, isque communis : etiam peregrinationes, rusticationesque communes. Nam quid ego de studiis dicam, cognoscendi semper aliquid, atque i? in quibus, remoti ab oculis populi, omne otiosum tempus contrivimus.

THESE EXAMPLES OF LIFE,

ARE, FROM THE HEART,

INSCRIBED:

J. L.

DEC. XII. MDCCCXXXII.

The eyes of Jehovah are upon them who love him;
He is their mighty protection, and strong stay:
A defence from the burning wind, and a covert from the mid-day sun;
A preservation from stumbling, and a help from falling:
He raiseth up the soul, and enlighteneth the eyes;
He giveth health, and life, and blessing.

THE SON OF SIRACH.

* This is an honour due to the dead; and a generous debt, to those that shall live, and succeed us.'

IZAAK WALTON.
