Excerpt from The Yale Literary Magazine, Vol. 10: December, 1844
While man was the favored resident of Paradise, he breathed nothing but the pure atmosphere of truth. Receiving all his impressions of the moral world from intercourse with angels, and with the Eternal him self; possessing eu intellect unclouded by the effects of sin, either upon his moral or physical nature; his views were unmingled with error, his lips unaccustomed to falsehood, and his heart a stranger to deception. He was qualified to hold converse with his Maker, face to face. And though an eternity of progressive knowledge would have been insufficient to have acquainted him fully with the character and works of the Deity, yet doubtless he was able even then to reconcile much that to us is dark and inconsistent - to penetrate many things which are now enveloped in a cloud of doubt and mystery.
