    Abstract :
    Literature is at once the cause and the effect of social progress. It deepens our natural sensibilities, and strengthens by exercise our intellectual capacities. It stores up the accumulated experience of the race, connecting yesterday and tomorrow into a conscious unity; and with this store it feeds successive generations, to be fed in turn by them. As its importance emerges into more general recognition, it necessarily draws after it a larger crowd of services, filling noble minds with a noble ambition. There is no need in our day to be dithyrambic on the glory of literature. Books have become our dearest companions, yielding exquisite delights and inspiring lofty aims. They are our silent instructors, our solace in sorrow, and our relief in weariness. With what enjoyment we linger over the pages of some well-loved author! With what gratitude we regard very honest book! Friendships, profound and generous, are formed with men long dead, and with men whom we may never see. The lives of these men have a quite personal interest for us. Their little ways and familiar phrases become endeared to us, like the little ways and phrases of our mothers and children.
