BENARES :-PRINTED BY E. J. LAZARUS & co.

“The history and the philosophy of antiquity are invaluable, and could ill be spared; but its poetry is what makes the ancient world near of kin to us, and is that by which we feel that the men of old were bone of our bone and flesh of

our flesh. The poetry of a race is what redeems it from perishing as a race, and immortalizes not only the individual poet, but the men who first loved his song and were gladdened by it. This is what binds together the hearts of the ancient and modern worlds."
