ADVANTAGE OF NATURAL HISTORY
To the Editor of the Lurgan, Portadown, and
SIR--I have been much pleased, and I would add, profited,
by the perusal of the articles lately published in your paper on
the Bee. It must be a source of great gratification to you to see
that one of the objects intended by your publication, has been
attained, namely, exciting in the minds of the people, and
especially of the working classes, a spirit of enquiry, and a
desire not only to attain, but also to impart knowledge. As
the study of Natural History is one the most likely to engage
and attract the attention of the young, and the middle classes,
I have thrown together a few remarks on the advantages to be
obtained from its study, and trust they may to a certain degree
be of use, in urging others to not only read and study for
themselves, but also from time to time communicate their
stores of knowledge to others.
I remain, sir, your obedt. servt.
