Death, Physiological Chemistry
The writer introduces this compilation as 'a most meritorious and useful little publication' (380–81). One of the extracts, taken from Henry Kett, notes that a consequence of death is that 'a kind of chemical operation takes place: for those characters which were mixed with the gross particles of vice by being thrown into the alembic of flattery, are sublimated into the essence of virtue' (381).
