Abstract:

"The subject of this little volume is one of immense importance to every individual. Thoughts are the germs of character and the indices of the mind. Young men of the present day, for whom these pages are specially intended, are surrounded with facilities for their intellectual and moral improvement, which have never been equalled in any by-gone period of this country's history. Among these facilities, are the cheap general literature of the day,--the books specially prepared for those who are budding into manhood,--the valuable libraries in some respectable houses in the metropolis,--the lectures publicly addressed, and the trembling anxiety manifested by the advocates of truth to allure and guide the expanding mind into the ways of wisdom and holiness. The writer has ever felt a deep concern in the welfare of young men, and that concern has been augmented by a knowledge of the snares, temptations, dangers and difficulties to which they are exposed. He knows how contagious is the influence of social intercourse, whether it be injuriously or beneficially exercised. He has witnessed, with much pain, the exertions which have been made, and are now making, to bring the minds of young men under the bias of the most degrading and impure principles, and to entangle such minds in the meshes of a "philosophy falsely so called." He avails himself of this opportunity to express his deep sympathy with those young men, who, by late hours of business, are prevented giving that time and that attention to their intellectual and religious culture, which these invaluable objects require, and which they would gladly give to them, if permitted"--Preface.
