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.
