The friends of Mr. Haven are not willing, that his memory should be suffered to fail from among those, who have done good in their time and furthered the cause of human improvement. They are, however, no less unwilling to come before the public with a volume, which, whatever may be thought of its merits or value by others, its author would not have permitted to go to the press without much care and, perhaps, many changes. They have, therefore, printed only a small number of copies of this collection. They have not published it. But still, they trust, it may serve to keep the recollection of Mr. Haven fresh in the minds of many, and, perhaps, not be without an influence on the advancement of those principles and hopes, to which he devoted his life.
