Book Excerpt: 
. . .#160;



I am monarch of all I survey,

My right there is none to dispute,

From the centre all round to the sea,

I am lord of the fowl and the brute.

O solitude! where are the charms

That sages have seen in thy face?

Better dwell in the midst of alarms

Than reign in this horrible place.

I am out of humanity's reach,

I must finish my journey alone,

Never hear the sweet music of speech,—

I start at the sound of my own.

This book was published by Rufus Merrill in 1850, Concord, New Hampshire. The Rufus Merrill Company published children's books, textbooks, and Christian literature. That is the historical significance of the book. It is a quick read and is old-fashioned with some poems that teach manners and morals.
