Description

Excerpt from Letters to a Mother on the Birth of a Child, in Which Are Set Forth the Feelings Most Proper on That Occasion, the Private Dedication, the Public Baptism, and Future Training of the Child: With an Appendix, in Which the Leading Views of the Baptismal Service Are Considered, and It Is Shown How the Same May Be Used Without Scruple and Unto Edification If it be asked, why these letters are addressed to a Mother rather than to a Father, or to both; it is answered, because, in point of fact, and in a great measure of necessity, the early religious education of children devolves chiefly on the mother. If it be asked, why the child is supposed to be a son rather than a daughter it is answered, because sons are necessarily exposed to much greater danger and temptation.
