a few useful ones at hand do more toward a happy
life, than whole volumes that we know not where
to find.-SENECA.

NOTE.

Encouraged by the success of the former editions of my “PROVERBIAL WISDOM,'' and at the request of many literary friends and appreciative readers to republish the same, I submit to the public the present edition, carefully revised and largely augmented.

May this work meet with approval, and inspire the reader to conscientious service, is the earnest hope of

THE EDITOR. New York, June, 1903.
