I have here only made a garland of choice flowers ;
I bring nothing of my own but the thread that binds them.

Montaigne.

Among the numerous volumes of selections which
have from time to time been offered to the public, it
does not appear that any one of similes or similitudes

be acceptable.

A MAN whose labour has acquired riches, and

1 whose charity dispenses them, is like the revolving sun, which draws the water from the ocean at the hour of noon, to disperse it over the earth in the evening dews.
