Excerpt from The Man in the Moon, Vol. 2: Or, Travels Into the Lunar Regions, by the Man of the People
Intense thought soon becomes painful: and no instruction can make a deep impression unless the mind is frequently relaxed by amusing objects. You shall now make a short tour with me through part of my dominions. I will introduce you to some good company. Know that a very great number of human fouls, after death, come into these variegated regions, some to undergo punishment and purification; others to enjoy the rewards that follow the culture of science and the practice of virtue. The former are confined for ages in what astronomers have called the Mare Crisium.
