ADVERTISEMENT.

The reader will observe that a large portion of this work consists of passages from authors, contemporary with those whose last hours are here recorded. The fidelity of the narratives has thus been preserved: and the frequent variations occurring in the language and style will hence be accounted for.

This little book is earnestly recommended to the perusal of those who are in health, that it may prove of greater use and benefit to them in the time of sickness. “ Remember,” says Robert Nelson, “to be that in health, which you will wish to have been when you come to die.”
