"READER, I am a plain person. I have seen hard times. I have been cast upon the Lord from my birth. All my life I have been a child of Providence. I am familiar with poverty and hardship. My feelings have often been hurt by the gay and the proud. I have been sick among strangers. I have often wept when all around were merry. I have acquired a small share of knowledge. Some of it I know by experience to be valuable. Allow one who wishes you well to give you a few counsels."
