"You have not yet heard from me, sir," answered Charles gravely, "that I have any difficulties at all.

I have just finished reading it, and find it a very moral and nice book." After this certificate, it will be safe for the Bible Society to continue its operations. Nearly all the popular amusements in Fayal occur in connection with religion. After the simpler buildings and rites of the Romish Church in America, the Fayal churches impress one as vast baby-houses, and the services as acted charades.

"Keswick, Feb. 26, 1826. My dear Cottle, Whether I shall pursue the subject, in that form, depends on circumstances.
