cian, and the second to the jurist. But they both belong to the philanthropist, and are to be discussed rather by appeals to common sense, than to the technicalities of science. The substitution of machinery for manual labor has superseded a vast amount of physical exertion, and exempted thousands of women from that muscular action which is indispensable to health. The inevitable consequence is a deterioration of health, and other consequent evils of an alarming character. The attention of the community must ere long be called to this matter. The political rights of women have been often discussed, but generally without either wisdom or moderation on either side. That they ought to aspire to the right of suffrage, cannot, I think, be maintained, but that better provision ought to be made to secure to them their property, I have no doubt.

BALTIMORE, May, 1841.

PREFACE

TO THE SECOND EDITION.

THE first edition of this work having been some time out of print, and a second being resolved on, the author took the opportunity to add two new lectures, on the "PRESERVATION OF HEALTH," and the "RIGHTS OF WOMAN." By the suggestion of a few timely thoughts on these subjects, he

hopes to increase the value and usefulness of a book, which has already met a favorable reception from the public.
