To those heroic minds who can truly say: "My soul is my own," and bravely maintain it through everything in spite of Church or State I do offer with earnest congratulations and my loving greetings, these fragmentary thoughts of


Our revered Emerson loaned his Plato to a neighbor. Meeting him some time afterward he said to him: "How did you like Plato?" "Very much," the farmer answered, "very much indeed. I see he has a great many of my idees." And so, my readers if there be such there may be herein set forth some of your own familiar thoughts which you may not have found opportunity to express in such guise as appears in this small book.
