HAVE NOW READY,
MEDITATIONS ON DEATH AND ETERNITY. Translated from
the German of ZSCHOKKE, by FREDERICA Rowan. 1 vol. 16mo. Price, $1.25. The circumstances under which this volume has been produced are very peculiar and interesting.

After his death the Queen found much comfort in their perusal, and employed Miss Rowan to translate them, for private circulation among her own immediate family. The volume is now reprinted in America, where so many afflicted hearts are in deep and overwhelming sorrow, and need consolation. TWO FRIENDS. By the Author of “ The Patience of Hope," and
