“The five different kinds of wealth, which the author discusses in this book are Mother, Imagination, Old age. Health and Character. In the first essay, he expatiates the greatness of the mother who also expresses herself in the mother country and the mother tongue and drives home to the Reader on the necessity of paying his homage to every one of them. In the second essay the learned author leads the student to imagine and find out for himself the several uses of the eye and the ear and by series of questions and answers arrives at the conclusion that everyone should see little, speak less, but learn more. In the next chapter entitled 'Wealth of Old age, the value of experience is mentioned and incidentally, the virtue of truthfulness emphasised; it would have been better if the teaching intended to be bought forth by the chapter heading is more boldly brought forth. The next chapter deals with the necessity of physical exercises and the last chapter is a story of two boys who after a long search for true Wealth come to the conclusion the only good character and good behaviour form true Wealth. The style of the book is simple and direct.
