EDINBURGH:-J. MENZIES.

MDCCCL.

PREFACE.

The object of the writer, in collecting and preparing the following sketches, has been to prove the influence Parents-and mothers more especially-have in forming the characters of their children. Many more instances might have been added ; but it is hoped those contained in this little volume will be sufficient to carry out the design.

The writer has addressed herself to mothers thinking that the examples brought forward may not only act as incentives to duty, but serve as encouragements to perseverance, even under difficulties in their labour of love, assured that their labour will “not be in vain in the Lord.”
