INTRODUCTION

IN introducing this little work to the public, we deem it proper to state,
1. That it was when visiting a friend in the State of Vermont, some ten years since, that we first saw a copy of the three scenes of the Game of Life, with notes of explanation. It was then in magazine form, and had attracted so much attention, had passed through so many hands, and had become so worn, that it would scarcely hold together. We have never seen but this one worn copy. A careful hand repaired it, and has preserved it, with the idea of some day presenting it to the public, executed in a more acceptable style.

2. We take pleasure in stating that our artist, under the supervision of the Merchants’ Lithographing Company, Chicago, III. - Glover, Sheldon, & Hugo - has succeeded well. His task was the more difficult on account of the worn and imperfect condition of the design, and his effort to change it in some objectionable features of the original idea.

3. This work is not denominational. It will be accepted by thoughtful Christians of all evangelical denominations, as a most impressive illustration of the great practical truths of the word of God.
