SCENES IN ANOTHER WORLD.

GEORGE WOOD,

AUTHOR OF "PETER SCHLEMIHL IN AMERICA," "MODERN PILGRIMS," ETO.

What if earth

Be but the shadow of heaven, and things therein

Each to other like, more than on earth is thought?

MILTON, P. L., Book V.

SOCRATES, before drinking the cup of hemlock, said to his disciples,
"It is especially suited to one who is on the eve of departing to another
world, to inquire into and speculate upon his migration thither of what
nature we suppose it to be."

ADVERTISEMENT.

An edition of this work, entitled “Future Life; or, Scenes in Another World,” was published by Derby and Jackson in the fall of 1858. The firm failed in the spring of 1859, and the plates were resold to the author, and have remained in his possession unused until the present time, when the recent popular and attractive book of Miss Phelps, entitled “The Gates Ajar," suggested its republication and the change of title which is now made. The Author hopes his readers will be gratified with this attempt to picture the Scenes and Society of Another World.

WASHINGTON, May 1, 1869.
