It is hoped that the following Collection will afford an ample illustration of the foregoing observations. It has been drawn from the works of the most admired poets in the language, and the Editor earnestly prays that the publication may tend to purify and elevate the thoughts of those into whose hands it may fall, and to produce a conviction that that which is morally, is also intellectually the best.
