THE SECOND OF THREE SLIM VOLUMES Roger LEstrange, staunch royalist, author and pamphleteer, one-time inmate of Newgate Prison, one-time exile, one-time Member of Parliament, takes up the teaching of the Roman Stoic philosopher Seneca, rearranging and paraphrasing the original Latin to shape a unique and engaging work of his own. Although it is not in our power to prevent fortune from sending us perils and trials, we may yet meet them with courage, free of perturbation, and bear them as unkind seasons, neither frightened of terrors nor grieving for lost pleasures.

This slim volume is the second of three parts of Roger LEstranges Seneca of a Happy Life, being itself an extract of a much larger whole, Senecas Morals, first published in 1678.
