The same thy bills and dells, those skies the same,
Of rich October - and the same gray walls,
Reared in New England's infancy are those. "

Every sound poet, who does justice to his own faculties, and to the great subjects prepared for their exercise, is of a sacred order. Let us not, then, seek to limit the sphere of the child of song, save by a deep sense of the worthiness and responsibility of his calling. Free let him remain to shift his delighted “ glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;'' – to expatiate, unfettered, wherever nature invites, or imagination bears him. — Introductory Essay to Sacred Poetry of the Seventeenth Century.

Entered according to act of Congress, in the year 1839, by D. S. King, in the Clerk:s Office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

John B. Hall, Printer.
