A Narrative of the Controversy Between the REV. Jedidiah Morse, D.D. and the Author (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Narrative of the Controversy Between the Rev. Jedidiah Morse, D.D. And the Author Gently refutes itself, and it is impossible that he can believe, that, if it were circulated, it could have ever injured him. Sec ondly, I remark, that his two charges are inconsistent. He pub lishes my statement, in which there is not only no hint of the, story of the ms. But such an account of his conduct, as makes the story impossible. He cannot think, that I, or my friends should, at the same time, propagate two stories, one of which would instantly destroy the effect of the other. Both of his charges, therefore, cannot be true. Thirdly, I cannot think, that Dr. Morse believes himself, when he asserts, that this story has been circulated by me, because he condescends to use evidence which he knew to be wholly without foundation. He asserts, that two persons received impressions of its truth, which, he says, page 34, I have reason to believe were made by Miss A. Herself; she at least never took any pains to chime them, though a visitor in the family. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
