Excerpt from The Three Reformations, Lutheran, Roman, Anglican
For the corporeal part of our nature let us do what in us lies to prevent the people from being ever worked let us adopt those sanatory measures which are needful, in order that our noble Saxon race may not degenerate into pigmies; and while we value the commercial interests of our country, let us never forget that the object of the true patriot will be to promote not merely the wealth of the few but the welfare of the millions; for the souls of our brethren let us go on erecting sanctuaries and providing the means of grace; let us build schools, train school masters, and multiply such institutions as this, that men may improve their minds, and in the intervals of labour taste the delights of mental recreation.
