ADDRESS TO HIS READERS.
Charitable and Gentle Reader! to thee the Author of this Book has little to say, thy attributes being the godlike virtues of meekness and charity.
Pious and Religious Reader! let not thy feelings be offended, and withhold thy censure, until thou shalt find in these pages a single sentiment inconsistent with the spirit and principles of that holy religion which thou professest; and condemn not the feebly imitative manner of writing therein occasionally employed, until thou canst point out a language more impressive, or more appropriate, than that in imitation whereof these chapters are framed.
Readers in general! take warning from the awful examples, and profit by the Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/10 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/11 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/12 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/13 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/14 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/15 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/16 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/17 Page:The First Book of Napoleon.djvu/18
