Excerpt from Religion in Connexion With a National System of Instruction, Their Union Advocated, the Arguments of Nonreligionists Considered, and a System Proposed
This question presupposes that nations should provide instruction for the young, - a proposition which I have endeavoured brieﬂy to explain, qualify, and maintain in part of the pages that follow. The point is an interesting one, but not that which is my main object.
Let us come to the consideration of the great question calmly and fearlessly. For myself I know that I am anxious to attain a knowledge of the truth, and to act upon it when it is attained. I have had occasion, in the discharge of my professional duties, to think long and anxiously on the question, not with a view to speculation, but to immediate practice. I have come to the conclusion that nations ought to combine most intimately religious with secular instruction. My reasons are contained in the work before the reader.
