Overview

Life has now and then some supreme moments of pure happiness, which in reminiscence give to single days the value of months or years. Two or three such moments it has been my good fortune to enjoy in talking over the mysteries which forever fascinate while they forever baffle us. I only wish these essays were more worthy of their origin. These essays attempt to answer the questions: "What are you, where did you come from, and wither are you bound?" Also included is: The Unseen World; The To-Morrow of Death; The Jesus of History; The Christ of Dogma; A Word about Miracles; Draper on Science and Religion; Nathan the Wise; Historical Difficulties; The Famine of 1770 in Bengal; Spain and the Netherlands; Longfellow's Dante; Paine's "St. Peter"; A Philosophy of Art; Athenian and American Life.
