A Memoir

OF THE

LIFE OF SAMUEL HICK,

LATE OF MICKLEFIELD, YORKSHIRE.

BY JAMES EVERETT.

"TAAT not only the maxima, but the grounds of a pure morality, the mere fragments of which
the lofty grave Tragedian taught in chorus of iambic,' and the sublime truths of the Divine unity
and attributes, which Plato found most hard to learn, and deemed it still more difficult to reveal-
that these should have become the almost hereditary property of childhood and poverty-of the hovel
and the workshop-that, even to the unlettered, they sound as COMMON-PLACE, is a phenomenon
which must withhold all but minds of the most vulgar cast from undervaluing the services even of the
pulpit and the reading desk.”-COLERIDGE'S BIOGRAPHIA LITERARIA.
