Excerpt from Order and Chaos: A Lecture, Delivered at Loyola College, Baltimore, in July 1869
But we are still only at the threshold of this deserted temple. As you stand there, it seems to you not only dark but empty. Yet you will find, as your eyes become accustomed to the feeble light, that it is not so. Advance a little into the interior, and you will see a curious scene. The whole place is filled with different groups, more than the eye can count, and in the midst of each is a man, who is addressing those around him.
