“I am a slave, a favored slave
At best, to share his splendor, and seem very blest;
When weary of these 'fleeting charms and me,
There yawns the sack, and yonder rolls the sea.
What! am I then a toy for dotard's play,
To wear but till the gilding frets away?”
-- ByRon's Corsank.

“In youth women are our idols, at a riper age our companions, in old age
our nurses, and in all ages our friends.” LORD BACON.

THIS volume is not an essay upon woman's rights, or a philosophical investigation of what is or ought to be the relation of the sexes. If any theories on this subject are contained in it, they are merely incidentally implied by the manner of stating historical facts. I have simply endeavored to give an accurate history of the condition of women, in language sufficiently concise for popular use. Those who reflect on this highly interesting and important subject will find in the facts thus patiently collected much that will excite thought, and many materials for argument. L. M. C.
