It has been my aim in these multifarious and numerous quotations to indicate, in choice passages from the best Authors, the means of matrimonial happiness and content. There is many a flower here, which, if it bloom in the household of married love, will diffuse its sweetness in mutual delectation, confidence, and rest. With this design, and with many valuable suggestions and appropriate illustrative passages I have received at the hands of my Publisher, Mr. LOCKWOOD, for which I cannot be sufficiently grateful, I have culled the blossoms for this BRIDAL BOUQUET, and now present it, with the desire that it may add to the sweetness and joy of many a home where dwell the mutually loving and loved, and help to make it-in the sunny summer, the generous autumn, and the cheerful winter of married life-the fulfilment of all the promise of the Bridal spring. Whatever of contingency there may be in Marriage, there is reliable truth in the old apothegm, "She that is loved is safe, and he that loves is joyful."
