WHILE the earth abideth, with her seed-time and harvest, some men will be tillers of the soil. The day may come when there will be no more squires, but there will be sure to be farmers.

The day may come when there will be no more squires, but there will be sure to be farmers. Whether there be lords, they shall cease- or lawyers, they shall vanish away- but farmers shall remain. Both good and evil husbandmen, Cains and Noahs, will plough furrows and reap harvests until the end come. Hence there will always be need ofFARM SERMONS.Sermons to slingers and archers, to falconers and troubadours would now find scarce a reader- but farmers are as plentiful as ever, and discourses, designed for them will find hearers if they deserve them.It is fit that farmers should have sermons gathered out of their own occupation, for it is one which, above all others, abounds in holy teaching- and, as it would be ill for dwellers in the Indies to go from home for gold and spices, so would it be unwise to leave the field and the plough in search of instruction. He who dwells at Newcastle wastes time when he goes far for coals- he who lives by the labour of the field will be foolish if he neglects the teaching of nature for the most glittering philosophy. Some of the mightiest of prophets and preachers came from the plough, and surely that must be a good college which has furnished such able divines. As all the world is fed by the produce of the farm, so may all mens minds find food in meditating upon the ways of God in nature and providence, as seen by the husbandman. Hence we have soughtLESSONS FROM THE ACRES.
