THE

STRANGER;

OR, THE

NEW MAN OF FEELING.

“* Time overthrows the illusions of opinion, but establishes
the decisions of Nature."

BLAIR’s Lecture on Tuste.

“ Where'er we turn, by fancy charm'd, we find

Some sweet illusion of the cheated mind:
Oft, wild of wing, she calls the soul to rovei .
With humblest Nature in the rural grove,
Where swains contented own the quiet scene,
And twilight fairies tread the circled green ;
Dress'd by her hand, the woods and vallies smile,
And Spring diffusive decks th' enchanted isle."

COLLINS.
