Description

Excerpt from The Alchemist Mamma, said little Louisa Granville, after standing for some time in deep thought near her mother's work-table; will you tell me what is meant by an Alchemist? An Alchemist, my dear, is a person who pretends to change the common metals into gold. And can any person do that, mamma? No, my dear; I believe not. But some philosophers, who had more learning than wisdom, have been so foolish as to fancy it practicable; and have wasted a great deal of real gold in searching for that which was only imaginary. But what made you think of an Alchemist, Louisa? Because, mamma, I was trying to find out what my aunt Cleveland could mean when she said, if you succeeded in making me a prudent and careful woman, you would be a perfect Alchemist. And what do you think she meant? Oh! I know now very well! About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
