‘Show me a man’s companion’, says the proverb, ‘and I will tell you what the man is’; and this is, and must be true, because all men seek the society of those who think and act somewhat like themselves. Sober men will not associate.with drunkards. Frugal men will not like spendthrifts, and the orderly and decent shun the noise and the disorderly. It is for the vulgar to herd together, but there is a class rather higher which is stilt more blamable, ! mean the gay companions who come together to do little but talk, and talk without any purpose. The conversation among such persons has nothing of instruction in it, and is generally of a vicious tendency. Young people naturally seek the society of those of their own age; but be careful in choosing your companions; and lay this down as a rule never to be departed from, that no youth, nor man, ought to be called your friend, who is addicted to indecent talk or who is found of low society.
