PREFACE.

THERE are, in my parish, several intelligent and promising lads, in whose welfare I feel a very deep interest. I thought of preparing a course of Saturday afternoon lectures for them, upon the formation of character, and accordingly delivered one.

Upon reflection, however, it seemed to me that there were thousands of boys in our land, of about the same age, who needed instruction especially appropriate to their period of life; hence the School-Boy. I have endeavored to guide my readers to such regions of thought as should stimulate the mind and task its powers. This book is not intended merely

to afford entertainment for children, but, by

manly thought and expression, to elevate the intelligent and vigorous mind.

John S. C. ABBOTT.

ROXBURY, April, 1839.
