Excerpt from The First Lie: Or Falsehood Its Own Punishment; Shewing the Misery Occasioned by Disobedience to Parents

"The first He!" - I hear some little girl or boy exclaim as they read the title of this tale - What is the first lie? What does it mean, mamma?" Ah, my little readers! how happy are you, if you have never told your first lie! And how happy would I he, if I could save you from ever telling it! For oh, from what an endless and cruel succession of suffering, and sorrow, and sin, I would save you! Nobody can ever tell one lie, for they may think that they will never, never tell another, but just this one - yet, when that one, or this one, is told, they will find that two, or three, or four, or six, perhaps a dozen, are told to keep up the credit of the first - and so they end in being utterly wicked, and what always follows that, utterly unhappy and miserable. Listen very attentively to what I am going to tell you, and try to remember it whenever you feel yourself tempted to tell a lie.
