Description

Excerpt from Carl Werner, an Imaginative Story, Vol. 1 of 2: With Other Tales of Imagination Who shall say that was my reply. Who shall answer for the necessity. It may occur now as it has occurred before, nor is it an argument against the belief, that man has grown wise enough to find out the truth for himself, after judicial forms, without the need of any such revisitings of the moon. If wisdom has grown mighty to find out the truth, crime has also grown proportionably cunning to conceal it; and virtue suffers the injustice, and vice escapes, even now, from a just punishment, quite too frequently, when it were to be desired that some honest ghost could be evoked from the grave, to set the erring judgment of man aright. Coleridge considers it a conclusive argument against the notion, that the ghost of a man's breeches should appear with him. This may be a good joke, but it is a poor argument. If it be once admitted, that for wise and beneficial pur poses the just Providence shall permit the depart ed spirit to return to the earth, where it once abode.
