At home a friend-abroad an introduction in solitude a solace in society an ornament. It chastens vicemit guides virtue-it gives at once a grace and government to genius. Without it what is man. A splendid slave! a reasoning savage! vacillating between the dignity of an intelligence derived from God, and the degradation of passions participated with brutes ; and in the accident of their alternate ascendancy, shuddering at the terrours of an hereafter, or hugging the horrid hope of annihilation
