[From the preface]  "The author of this [1842] book has lived in the world very nearly fifty years. He remembers very distinctly when, and where, how, and with whom he played cricket and base—football and tag—skating, sliding, kite-flying, snow-balling, wrestling, swimming, &c., &c.”


The Two Ways and the Two Ends, a book published by the American Sunday School Union, 1842.
