PREFACE.

BIOGRAPHY, in all its various kinds, is the most captivating species of reading to the human mind-do but adapt the subject to the reader, and its entertainment becomes delightful, and its influence irresistible.

The secret cause of this lies deep in the heart of man-every one has some subject that he admires some aim that he stretches after.—The life of the man who possesses in any eminent degree his revered idol, becomes to him as a precious mine,—wherein his treasure lies hid--and he searches therein with diligence, to discover by what method it was attained, and by what power secured, that he also may become partaker of his happiness, and possessor of his favourite object.
