THE motive which has drawn forth this small work is, it is believed, a very ordinary one, that of offering back again for the service of Truth, knowledge which has been pleasurably and gratefully gathered. In the present negative and transitional state of the Scientific World general approval is little hoped for; it is therefore only to the enlightened believing few, whose thoughtful experience has enabled them to appreciate the great magnetical revelation of the true Light of Nature, that the Author looks for encouragement to cheer his spirit, hesitating to pass on from this Introduction to a fuller and more open exposition of truths, bearing, as he conceives, on the highest and best interests of the Human Race.
A translation of the few Latin quotations has been proposed for the general reader. But as they were appealed to and adduced by the Author not only to sanction, but to energize and give higher tone to his ideas, would not his translating them be again to lose in literal dulness what he sought to gain in classical point and application? In case, however, they should prove troublesome to any reader, disinclined to pass them over, prose translations are given in notes appended to the end. Conscious want of language to convey such yet unfamiliar conceptions, in utterance equal and responsive to the sense deep and newly stirred that gave them birth, was the occasion of introducing them.
