THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER.

Dear Young Friends,

THERE are many commemorative days of far less importance than the fifth of November ; but whether it should be observed by kindling bonfires, and letting off squibs and crackers, we have not now time to decide : I shall only in passing advise you to be very cautious in making sport with fire. Many people, who are older than you, have repented playing with gunpowder : their scarred faces to this day show their carelessness. It is to be hoped that, when you lads become men, you may be able to employ in honest labour all the limbs and faculties which God has given you. It will be no sport to lose either a finger or an eye; and no pleasant reflection afterwards, that you lost them by your own fault. When God suffers us to be deprived of health or limb, we must patiently submit to His will; but never should we throw away any of His mercies.
