Author's preface

Read these counsels slowly.
Pause to meditate their meaning.
They are things that I whisper in your ear,
as a friend, as a brother,
as a father.

We shall speak intimately;and God will be listening to us.
I am going to tell you nothing new.
I shall only stir your memory
so that some thought may arise
and strike you:

and so your life will improve
and you will set out along the way of prayer
and of Love.
And in the end you will become a soul of worth
