W HEN I began to write this
work, I divided it into three parts, supposing that one volume would contain a
full discussion of the arguments which seemed to me to rise naturally from a
few simple principles; but fresh illustrations occurring as I advanced, I now
present only the first part to the public.
Many subjects, however, which I have cursorily alluded to, call for
particular investigation, especially the laws relative to women, and the
consideration of their peculiar duties. These will furnish ample matter for a
second volume, which in due time will be published, to elucidate some of the
sentiments, and complete many of the sketches begun in the first.
