Summary The following letters were originally designed to be preserved in a manuscript, as a legacy to a motherless child. The circumstances which have resulted in their being given to the world, is not necessary to state. The author has only to add his earnest prayer, that they may be read, with some degree of advantage, by young females into whose hands they may happen to fall, and ecpecially by those, whom the righteous Providence of God has deprived of the advantages of maternal care and instruction
