Reading Experience:

I have finished Dr. Clark?s Discourse. It is very clever: but as all metaphysical discourses on scriptural subjects, must be, - seeking only to convince the human reason, it is unconvincing. At least this is true of one or two material parts, where even I have detected fallacies. Dr. Card?s sermon on the Athanasian creed, is bound up in the same volume; & I have read it.
