with his latest breath, "I am better now."

Let us

believe, in spite of doubts and dogmas, of fears and tears, that these dear words are true of all the countless dead.

And now, to you, who have been chosen, from among the many men he loved, to do the last sad office for the dead, we give his sacred dust.

Speech cannot contain our love. There was, there is, no gentler, stronger, manlier man.

Price in cloth, $1.25; postage 9 cls. Paper, 50 cts.; postage 5 cts.

Vols. I and II, bound in one, paper covers, price $1.00; postage 10 cts. morocco, gilt edges, price $5.00.

These books are elegantly bound and printed in clear, bold type, on heavy, tinted paper.

The author takes the ground that man belongs to himself, and that each individual should at all hazards maintain his intellectual freedom.

These lectures have created the greatest sensation in the religious world since the days of Voltaire. Hundreds of pamphlets have been published, thousands of sermons have been preached, and numberless articles have been written against them, with the effect of increasing their popularity every day.

They have excited the hatred of the orthodox and bigoted, and the admiration of the intelligent and generous; they are denounced by all believers in tryanny, in slavery, by the beaters of wives, the whippers of children, the believers in hell, the haters of progress, the despisers of reason, by all the cringers, crawlers, defamers of the dead, and by all the hypocrites now living. By a great many others, they are held in the highest esteem.
