CITY LIFE;

OR,

STRAY LEAVES FROM THE WORLD'S BOOK,

BEING A

Series of Tales, Sketches, Incidents, and Scenes,

FOUNDED UPON THE NOTES OF

A HOME MISSIONARY.

BY JAMES REES,
Author of “ The Philadelphia Locksmith," " The Nighthawk Papers,” &c.

The needy man who hath known better days,
One whom distress has spited at the world,
Is he whom tempting fiends would pitch upon
To do such deeds as make the prosperous men
Lift up their heads, and wonder who could do them.
