PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION.

THE words of preface which this homely little volume requires are but few. With no pretensions to originality, it professes merely to be a brief Manual of every-day hints to those who, commencing "Life in Earnest," and fully instructed in its principles, may yet feel their need of a few practical and plain-spoken words about the details of their work-words often left unspoken, because apparently so obvious. The Author is not without the hope, that her little work may prove of some service to those who, along with herself, may have experienced the needs and lamented the failures, to which she has sought to direct attention.

PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION.

A SECOND EDITION having been thus early called for, the Author begs to acknowledge with gratitude the kind reception which her little volume has met with, and to state, for the purpose of removing a misapprehension of which she has been informed,-that comparatively but a small portion of this work has appeared in another form.
