Illustrated by facts. Also observations on the consequences effected in us through the quality or dominion of faith and belief, or self-will operation, as influenced by the phrenological organ of hope, and called into active being, through the agency of education and persuasion, and other means, as charms, spells, and amulets, to which are added essays on free-will and fate, destiny, and inevitable necessity. 158pp. Index.
