A Strong indication of a Well regulated mind is to know the proper resting Point. The human mind As we before remarked in its Insatiate thirst for knowledge seems to Rise against every ols Stallc which the god of nature in his usual Wisdom throws in its Way. In its ambition it endeavours to vault Over Verv harrier and should it in Many instances glory in its Success it but too Fri Pientl rambles in the seductive regions of error and falsehood.

When struck by convincing and Luminous proofs he ought to he satisfied and no though he cannot perceive All things with an equal degree of evidence he should not therefore disavow the truth occasionally clouded As it is. There is a fundamental Rule in reasoning which tells us never to sacrifice a Well Estavi listed proposition for u few difficulties which cannot be clearly explained. Human reason As Well As the human heart is liable to excess and the Wise Man is Ever on his guard against this double sensuality. A few examples will perhaps explain this assertion. Common sense and the Faith of Mankind proclaim that there exist a material world an irresistible propensity forces us to believe it to assert that it is a Mere phantasmagoria would be an insult to reason and to a feeling which is too Strong for any sophistry to destroy.
