I (Just after publication): The novelty is absurd
and subversive of Religion and Morality.

and will yield a full and satisfactory

The propounder a man of sublime genius and perfect virtue.

The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.

as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.

someone of a different skin color.
