“Like Touchstone of imperishable memory, the author uses folly as his stalking-horse.” — Weekly Dispatch, 1870.

This pamphlet contains several predictions, some of which have come to pass, e.g., the fall of Louis Napoleon and of the Pope's temporal power (p. 36); the evacuation of Rome by the French (p. 43); Rome the capital of Italy in 1871 (p. 79); the completion of German nationality (p. 78). Amongst the unfulfilled ones, we would draw attention to the Anglo-Teutonic League (p. 78). See also pp. 70, 76, and 82.

He has, therefore, restricted himself to recording his thoughts on various subjects, but principally on religion, among which will be found several which are suggestive of the various trials through which his soul had to pass on its way to spiritual light and freedom.
