conception of the religious duties of man was liable 
to 
the 
EITOTS 
of 
the 
human judgment,

not to be maintained on the presumption of be- 
ing actually according to the will of God. There 
is something at once simple and venerable in the 
humility with which they regarded their own pe- 
culiar principles, especially contrasted With the 
sublime 
view 
they 
aPP6ared 
to 
take 
the wis-

and 
providence 
of 
the 
Deity- 
But: 
with 
Whatever 
delightful 
feelings 
strangers 
and 
poste- 
rity may contemplate this beautiful example of 
Christian magnanimity, it would be impossible to 
convey any idea of the sentiments with which it

cise. 
He 
must 
have 
been 
less than man 
he 
had 
to attain an 
not endeavoured without ceasing, 
nourable eminence in 
his 
profession ;

he 
forgotten, 
in 
the 
honours 
which 
has since re- 
he 
ceived 
all 
from 
polished 
nations, 
that he was au- 
tborized by his friends and his religion, to cultivate 
the art by which he obtained such distinctions, 
but as an instrument chosen 
not For his own sake, 
peace in 
by Providence to disseminate the arts of 
the world.
