“THE FRIEND,” since it was remodelled by the Author, has hitherto appeared in three volumes. It is now offered to the public in two volumes, with a corresponding reduction of price. It has thus become necessary to change the numbering of the Essays, which is now carried on uninterruptedly from first to last. The old numbers are however retained [in the Index] for convenience of reference. The present Editor is indebted to a friend for a careful examination of the text, which has been compared, in all cases of doubt, with a copy in the possession of the Editor revised by the Author's own hand. A few typographical errors of some importance have been corrected, but no other alterations have been made.

The lessons contained in this work will be found, it is believed, not less applicable to the present than to any preceding time.

Now for the writing of this werke,
I, who am a lonesome clerke,
Purposed for to write a book
After the world, that whilome took
Its course in oldè days long passed :
But for men sayn, it is now lassed
In worser plight than it was tho,
I thought me for to touch also
The world which neweth every day-
So as I can, so as I may,
Albeit I sickness have and pain,
And long have had, yet would I fain
Do my mind's hest and besiness,
That in some part, so as

I

guess, The gentle mind may be advised.

Gower, Pro. to the Confess. Amantis.
