reserve

wherever I perceive any glimmering of truth before me, I readily pursue, and endeavour to trace it to its source; without

any or caution of pushing the discovery too far, or opening too great a glare of it to the public. I look upon the discovery of any thing which is true, as a valuable acquisition to society, which cannot possibly hurt or obstruct the good effect of any other truth whatsoever: for they all partake of one common essence and necessarily coincide with each other: and like the drops of rain, which fall separately into the river, mix themselves at once with the stream and strengthen the general current.”

B. M.

August 1, 1837.
