Bnt, that I may be the better iiuderxlodd on this important (ubject, I nill eodeHvoiir briefly to ex-plain what I mean by the word luealitiet, as it will ao frequently occur in this Letter. ' Under this term I include the opiiHotis aiwl principles, partly true and partly false; which every individual imbibeiiiaccordiK^'lo ihecqnntry, cliiiiatr, government, and rel'gion-cU*s, stdt, and parly, uiidc-r or in which he wan educated, at that periml when the youtlilul imiid is utterly incapable of ni-cioiitflly exercising the powerof volition, or to whoke iiiflueiicea he may have becuine in riper years, from various accidental, yet perhaps i�ncontrolable causes, more or lesa subjected.

On the other hnud, an inhabitant of the f0(nma�_ iiity of Hnriuoiiy, in Indiana, in the United Stales, beiii^ born and nurtured in a society riarriiuod^d with every inducpmenl to vit'toous conduct, niid in full pos^eskinii of comfort iinil plenty, can wiih. diffi> cully realize the thou|)l!t, that man is capableof arm-iog himiclf lo vUugUter h\� fellow man, or that he cxtrbe cmiteiit to partake nf luxuries the tuoSt refined and delicate, whilst he ten well knows tliat wiihiii a fe?w yards �f him dwell hundreds of his brelluen, piitini; in want and wretchedness.

Viewing, as you h this letter to bring the subject to a fair issue. You have said, that the principles which I have publicly BVBWed are subversive of the Gaverumeiit and Re-lijijioii of the country. It never was, Sir, my intention lo injure tiie Government and Religion under which we live; iny object iiai been to withdraw from both that which appeared to me to be their defects and errors, and to wiihdraw them, not by cm-rcTon aiid violence, but grarfttdlTy au^ temper-" ately, under the direction of the Guveriiineut and the Clmrch. It is BOW nearly ^ven years since I distinctly saw the necessity for this change, and since I openly and fairly comiuauicated these seuitinents, without reserve, to the hands of ihe Ciiurch-to our own Go-vernineiit-and to otiier Goveriiinenls. 1 then received encouragement frotn lhe*e parties lo proceed in the course which 1 had conimeitced. and to this hour I have not deviated, from it. Yet, if I am wrong, I willingly take to myself whatever blame attaches to these proceedijigs, since they have ari.xeii from a thorough conviction of the truth of the'principles on which they are founded-that convictiutr still more conflrmed by the favourable decision of the mokt acute and profound minds in this country and ill Europe; and also from a conviction of^the multiplied beneSts that will ari�e from their adoption in practice, both to the governors aud go-vernerl. J will now subtnit the causeof difference between uear to me, are those which more immediately or remotely proceed from a single erroneous principle. It is true it is an error of ancient dalei which has, according lo existing records, entwined itself arnniid every government and religion hitherto known to exist; ami it was therefore that I publicly avowed, �that I was not of any religion hitherto taught in the world bicause they all contained much, yes, very much error. Tell me honestly. Sir, do you believe me to be an enemy to any part of mankind, because I aiB anxious to bring under review that which appears, to a conscientious mind, lo be an error productive of no good fruit iu practice, but of incalculable evil auU inisery ? You, surely, will not condemn any one fur so acting.-1* not your oppoiilion to hiin who t�uw ad^^res-es you, foHnded on the very same principle ? The error, then, which I Jin compelled, by a strict adherence Co truth, to lament in our government, is ihat part of it which presumes that the character of the individual is formed by hiirHelf. This error is, iu the first place, in direct oppositibi> to alt the facts of which we pos^sess any accurate ici^.HtljE^ge-->t is also in direct opposition to some uf the (Hinciples, and to'fhe best part of the retogioW, which i� the UM of tbia lahti-and it is the c^tuse of the iiieoDsiateuciea, visible to atlj in.^ tli� comtii^sf of Vi�lst^1fho profiss to be governed bj 'thittretfg^ib): �l^iv the sole caase why th6iw 7uva-tiiable ymyeHai ithimty' and lienevtj- lence, mtii|f|l(i�ii^^ have never been aeei^ in praetMi^ teachei vk%, and yotf, .Sir, profeM^i^^'that we cannot do any thing of or IhtT 4af8erVe#; that the Ocity, directly or indiftecUy, CdH�e> *f alT Ihe anger, iiud of the eVtT pavslanii, which ifow.flgjtute the world j that the con>equetireti�nf; and ilmfir must ineritably lead to conduct desuuctive of genuine charity, benevolence, and kindness. Tliew same localittes. Sir, prevent yoor seeing (he troth, and practical benefits of the truth, " that the character of every hamaii being i-s, in all its parts, formed for him ;" that the want of this knowledge oil Ihe part of those who govern the world, alone retards the adoption of a system of government founded on prinriplei of science, which would unerringly prenent the existence of those crimes which hitherto it has been the chief busiuean of the world to detect and punish. Did you clearly understand this invaluable truth, and were you fully aware of the certain con.* set^uences which inu^t ensue from a general belief of It, you would not attempt to raise any part of the revenues of these realms iu such a manner ai must, aud does actually, deteriorate the mural character, and, conseqnent\y, create much poverty, orime, and misery. But it is to the consequences of the great truth, � that man. does hot form his otart cliarHCi�r," that I would direct your clase and pro^ found attention, since it is from u superficial examination of the cmseqntntes of this doctrine, that so many nell-intentioued iiiindM irtve been at first repelled from it ; whereas man)' uf the most acni-ble aiifl intelligent of my early o)i|>oser9 now publicly acknowledge, that lliey peiceive nothing bnt uiiiningied good in the eotisaguences of this once a]>pallriig iluctrine. iVJay I be permitted then to add, that by your acts of commission, or omission, you, as one of the iVlenibera of the Governiueiil, may justly be s;iid lo be one of the tnnaceiit, yt-t certain occasions of the poverty, crime, and suffering^which WWi^Biift.-the piipuldtiun ortliese kiuj;doia� ; fur, on an experience winch no other imlividual haa been permitted to attain, I assert you possess the most ample means to give a new character to the people, gretitly superior to any jet seen, and to surround them, in a ohort perioel, with plenty and en^ joy men te who happen to be in power, that the irraliotml anger and irrilatioii of the world may the more speedily cease. It i� tint, iherefure, to arouse a spirit of animosity that I thus write, but, if pos>ible, lo direct your attention, aud the atienimn of the Guvernnieiit, to the extraordinary power that ProVIDKnce has placed in your baud� to do good, and to allay the present alarming and increasing initaiiuu of society. Let the people be instructed from inr.inry in a knowledge ihut the churacier uf every individual is formed /"or him, mid let all your other pruceejiiitgs be couatsient with tliifi fundainentul principle,, and your difRculties wi)l speedily .(rrminate. Inste.idof the present system, which you must plainly ptrceivp is generating evil on all sides, a new one will rtsu from your labours, which must prevent the ere8'0 of any of these evils, as it will destroy them in their birth-where you have now antjer, opposition, ttud malevolent passions, you will luve kinduesK, itpity of action, and all the best feelings of hnmun nattfre.
