Excerpt from The Respective Rights and Duties of Family, State and Church in Regard to Education
The following pages appeared during the course of last year in the American Catholic Quarterly Re view. As they did not pretend to any special merit, the author was the more gratified to find that they attracted some attention on the part of the friends of Catholic education not only in this country, but also in England, where the education question is discussed with no less warmth than in America. On appear ance of the first issue, January, 1884, the late lamented Canon Formby, one of the most learned men of the age, to whom the author was altogether unknown, in a letter to the London Tablet, Feb. 16, 1884, wrote: By a kind of good providence the American Catholic Quarterly Review of Jan. 1884, comes to England, and among its articles will be found one which claims the most careful study of all amongst us in England, who may find themselves under the standard of Catholic peril [i. E., the peril to Catholicity from the English Board Schools]. The title is The Rights and Duties of Family and State in Regard to Education. Af ter quoting largel from the article, he says I think the above will su ce to direct the attention of all to whom the words Catholic peril are what they are to myself, a most grim and dreadful reality, to this par ticular article.
