What if earth
Be but the shadow of heaven, and things therein
Each to other like, more than on earth is thought?

AN edition of this work, entitled "Future Life; or, Scenes in Another World," was published by Derby and Jackson in the fall of 1858. The firm failed in the spring of 1859, and the plates were resold to the author, and have remained in his possession unused until the present time, when the recent popular and attractive book of Miss Phelps, entitled "The Gates Ajar," suggested its republication and the change of title which is now made. The Author hopes his readers will be gratified with this attempt to picture the Scenes and Society of Another World.
WASHINGTON, May 1, 1869.
