that I shall undertake I may help to make clear the goodness of God to some who need to know more of it than they do.... June 22.

I have just sent her the following:--The stars against the tyrant fought In famous days of old; The stars in freedom's banner wrought Shall the wide earth enfold. June 23.

No doubt, dialectics serve as mental athletics, and speculative thought may be useful as an exercise of the mental powers; but processes which may be useful in this way might be very unfit to be held as permanent possessions of persuasion. It occurs to me that it might be more blessed to help the souls in hell than to luxuriate
