"Happy are they whose amusement is knowledge, and whose chief delight is the cal
tivation of the mind! Wherever they shall be driven by the persecution of Fortune, the
means of employment are still with them; and that weary listlessness, which renders
life insupportable to the voluptuous and the indolent, is unknown to those who can cn-
ploy themselves by reading."-Telemachus.

May Columbia always afford more than one Demosthenes, to support the cause of
Freedom; and may more than Ciceroniau eloquence be always ready to plead for in
jured innocence, and suffering virtue,”—Perkins.

and the indolent, is unknown to those who can employ themselves by reading.-Te-
lemachus.- May Columbia always afford more than one Demosthenes, to support the
cause of Freedom; and may more than Ciceronian eloquence be always ready to plead
