A collection of 99 children's fables, serving as a French-language-learning primer.

"They are selected not only from Aesop, but also out of Avienus, Barlandus, Gabrias, Phaedrus, and other fable-writers of note. There is a moral added to every fable, to help the children's understanding. If I have omitted the moral in the last fables, it is because, as the are more like histories than fables, and hte morality to be inculcated is obvious at every line, it would rather have been unbecoming than useful in its usual place." - from the introduction.

Lewis Chambaud (d. 1776).

Text of the fables in French, with French / English word reference at rear.

“Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (October 1, 1790 – July 12, 1846) was an English evangelical Protestant writer and novelist who wrote as Charlotte Elizabeth. She was the daughter of Michael Browne, rector of St. Giles's Church and minor canon of Norwich Cathedral, where she was born on 1 Oct. 1790. She married in early life a Captain Phelan of the 60th regiment, and spent two years with him while he served with his regiment in Nova Scotia. They then returned to Ireland, where Phelan owned a small estate near Kilkenny. The marriage was not a happy one, and they separated about 1824. Mrs Phelan subsequently resided with her brother, Captain John Browne, at Clifton, where she made the acquaintance of Hannah More. She later moved to Sandhurst, and then to London. In 1837 Captain Phelan died in Dublin, and in 1841 his widow married Lewis Hippolytus Joseph Tonna. She died at Ramsgate on 12 July 1846, and was buried there. While in Ireland Mrs. Tonna began to write, as "Charlotte Elizabeth," tracts for various religious societies. She was very hostile to the Catholic Church, and some of her publications are said to have been placed on the Index Expurgatorius. In 1837 she published an abridgment of Foxe's Book of Martyrs. She edited The Protestant Annual, 1840, and The Christian Lady's Magazine from 1836, and The Protestant Magazine from 1841 until her death. She also wrote poems, two of which, The Maiden City and No Surrender, were written specially for the Orange cause.”

A collection of religious tracts bound together in one volume.

(MacGREGOR, James, Rev.). Dain : A Chomhnadh Crabhuidh. [by] Le Seumas MacGriogair. Searmonaich an T-Soisgeil 'an America. With a memoir of the author, by the Rev'd D.B. Blair. Pictou : Printed by J.D. MacDonald, 1861. Pp (2),[iii]-viii,[3]-111[sic 112],(2). 12mo, disbound.

A volume of Gaelic poetry first published in Glasgow in 1818.

Not in TPL or Tennyson.

"Previous to this, however, he had sent to the press his Gaelic poems, by which he has had and continues still to have no small usefulness. With an intense desire for the good of his countrymen, he had always taken a deep interest in everymeasure having that object in view, and especially in what concerned their spiritual welfare. He had spent his life in toiling for the salvation, esp ecially, of those of them who had become expatriated to the Colonies, but he desired also to do something himself for those whom he had left in his native land. With this view he had several years before conceived the idea ofrendering the doctrines of the gospel into Gaelic verse, adapted to the mu sic most common among them, as has been expressed," that he might unite the best lessons with the sweetest melodies of his native land." These poems he had partly composed years before, as he says, " in part, when travelling the dreary forests of America.

"An individual informs me that going through the woods on a very dark night, he heard a kind of singing, and in a little came upon the Doctor, who was riding on horseback, and humming over portions of his poems as he composed them. As he had obtained a little more leisure to study, he had carefully revised them. From the MSS. in our possession it appears that some of them were copied several times. As early as the year 1814 we find him submitting some of them to competent Gaelic scholars. His design as well as the execution of it, having met their approval, he accordingly put the work to press under the title, "Dain a chomhnadh crab huidh," about the year 181S.

The copyright of this little work was given to the Glasgow Tract Society, so long as they should be diligent in circulating it. The following list of the titles of the several poems will give the English reader an idea of the volume:

1. The sum of the law.

2. The ten commandments.

3. Praise of the law.

4. The covenant of works.

5. The covenant of grace.
6. Sin — in two parts.

7. On the evil heart.

8. The gospel.

"Glad tidings of great joy which shall be to all people."

"He will save his people from their sins."

9. Faith. " Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved."

"Whatsoever is not of faith is sin."

10. Unbelief. "He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." "Because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not."

11. The complaint. "Who shall deliver me from this body of death?"

12. Christ's righteousness. "That I mny be found in him, not having mine own righteousness which is of the law, but the righteousness which is of God by faith.

13. The work of the Spirit." "Poems to promote Religion." "He saved us by the washing; of regeneration, and the renewing of the Holy Ghost." " Your heavenly Father shall give his Spirit to them that ask him,"

14. Grace commended. "My grace shall be sutfieient for thee."

15. The graces commended. " The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance."

16. Gospel questions, or, Christ all in all; from the English of Ralph Erskine.

17. The love of God — in three parts. " God is love."
18. Death. " I know that thou wilt bring me to death."

19. The resurrection. " The hour cometh,and now is, when they that are in their graves shall hear the voice of the Son of man, and they that hear shall live."

20. The judgment. " We must all appear before the judgment-seat of Christ, to give an account of the deeds done in the body, whether they be good or whether they be evil."

21. Heaven.

22. Hell.

23. Spread of the Bible and the gospel."
- from Memoir of the Rev. James MacGregor, D.D., by Rev. George Patterson, 1869, pp 448-450.
