To the same.
Since I saw you, I have often thought of the fear you seem to have of Spiritualism.
You appear to regard it as something uncanny.
I cannot feel so about it. I don't believe there is any miracle or any deviltry about it. I simply believe that the union of our spiritual nature with our material is governed by laws which we do not understand, and which lie beyond the region of any tests we are as yet able to apply.
I don't think the devil has anything to do with Spiritualism, any more than he has with comets.
I rather think I don't believe in the devil.
I certainly never think of him in connection with any mysteries that interest me. ... Now there is electricity!
That is an everlasting puzzle to me. I am always asking questions about it, and never get any of them answered.
I have a vague idea that it is “the spiritual body” of the universe.
I have a great many questions laid up to ask Plato
when I see him. He has been at the high school so long, he must know a great deal.. . My soul goes about “pervading” all departments of the universe, “wanting to
know;” and the only answer I get is, “Go about your business.”
So I go about it. I have just done fifteen pair of mittens and three pair of socks for the Kansas
I can trust them never to surrender a fugitive slave; so I work for them with a will.
Conway of Kansas
has made a magnificent speech in Congress.
It seems to me one of the greatest speeches I ever read.
I rejoiced also in Boutwell
's speech before the Emancipation League
It was ably argued, well arranged, excellent in its spirit, judicious and practical in its suggestions.
