Prayers

  • The essay "Prayers" was included by the editors of A Yankee in Canada with Anti-Slavery and Reform Papers (Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1866) in error, although it did contain the text of Thoreau's poem, "Great God, I ask thee for no meaner pelf." The essay, written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was originally published without attribution in The Dial (July 1842). The error was corrected in Miscellanies (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1894).
