- Book. print | 48 p. diagrs. 10 cm. | Available also through the Library of Congress Web site as facsimile page images and full text. (Additional Physical Form). Print (Form). Electronic Resource (Form). Remote (Form). The word useful is here used with a full sense 0047 48 of its meaning and importance, for we sincerely believe that “our Good Father in Heaven” has given us this universal love of motion to music for a purpose, as He has given us the love of pleasant sounds, the love of beautiful colors, and the love of graceful outline, all to share in the elevation of the human race. And this love of pleasant motions, called dancing, being so irresistible, in the young shows that it is designed for their time of life, and that we older one are not doing our full duty when we treat it as one of the follies of youth, and do not make use of it as a means of refinement, instead of allowing it to degenerate into coarseness, when it is so evidently intended for a better purpose.
