Preface to Instinct Displayed

Priscilla wrote:

“The harmonising beauty of creation and the interesting objects it presents, have been my delight from childhood ; and the enjoyments, as well as the advantages, I have received from this taste, have made me desirous of communicating it to others, by relating a few well authenticated facts of the exact coincidence of the instinctive powers with the necessities of animals … I thought more likely to arrest the attention of the young, when combined in the form of letters, rather than a long string of detached anecdotes, following each other like horses in a team.”
