On earth a more near approach to heavenly felicity cannot be presented than in the circle of a family all united and informed. The variety of opinions on the different subjects, viewed by the different ages and capacitites of the domestic circle produce a variety of feeling, all emanating from the same fountain and centering in the same object. Happiness and good feeling, dullness and envy has no residence, and the inmates are satisfied at home where they find love of the purest kind, always returned for love.
