THOUGHTS ON SELF-CULTURE.

ADDRESSED TO WOMEN.

BY MARIA G. GREY,

AND HER SISTER,

EMILY SHIRREFF,
Authors of “Passion and Principle," and " Letters from Spain and Barbary.”

"They (women) have nothing serious to do; is that a reason why they should do
nothing but what is trifling? They are exposed to greater dangers; is that a reason why
their faculties are to be purposely and industriously weakened? They are to form the
characters of future men; is that a cause why their own characters are to be broken and
frittered down as they now are?"

SIDNEY SMITH, Essay on Female Education.

BOSTON:
WM. CROSBY AND H. P. NICHOLS,
