"Small Means and Great Ends," a Universalist children's book online

This was one of my post that was vandalized through some bug or other security violation in MovableType. This is a small fix.

I wanted to bring a book to your attention: Small Means and Great Ends, by Mrs. M. H. Adams.

It is a fascinating work, for children, that is mostly and entirely written by Universalists, but doesn’t mention its Universalist tie. Probably a period attempt to mass-market a work. But the address of the press (“No. 37 Cornhill” in Boston) and some key names of contributors (like J. G. Adams, Mary A. Livermore, John Wesley Hanson, and Moses Ballou) give the provenance away.
