Priscilla’s second book

After Leisure Hours Priscilla seems to be working on several books that were published in multi-volumes so it is difficult to be completely confident of the order. However volume one of Juvenile Anecdotes, Founded on Facts Collected for the Amusement of Children seems to have been published in 1795 and the second volume in 1798. Similar to Leisure Hours it consists of many short stories designed to impart a moral lesson to the child. There is less reliance in these volumes on historical material and the stories focus on the experience of a single child to provide a good lesson.

A copy of volume 1 of the 7th ed published in 1825 is available on the Internet  Juvenile Anecdotes
