Tm: thought of this volume grew from the belief that it was i needed; and its execution lies in the maxim, “Do the duty that is I nearest thee.” It was originally intended only as a Reading Book for \ schools; but in ranging through extensive fields of Literature, so many l golden grains were harvested, that the plan was varied; and “The Wheat-Sheaf” was the result of abundant resources, which it has been a pleasant labour to arrange in accordance with the dictates of
