of expostulation, great purity of thought, and
great felicity of language.- Without any in

lustrates every subject with beautiful images.
If she clothes truth, it is in the chastest attire.
Her only fault, as a moralist, is her want of
genial and expansive sympathy. She looks
on humanity as from a distance, from a height
of personal virtue, like a being of another
sphere. ... It is not that she wants charity for
she pities all humsn weaknesses, and is anx
ious to relieve all human distresses but she
does not grasp her fellows with a warm and
cordial hand, or regard their errors with that
spirit of allowance which those always feel
who live tenderly along the lines of human
sympathies. We are not in love with the he

that Jliss JVlore has done much to soften the
prejudices of bigotry among those who would
