But I felt that I should not be doing justice to the subject were I to lay before my readers only one side of the case, and that in no manner was it possible to bring both sides before them so effectually as by allowing the opponents of my own views to speak for themselves. Our controversy is merely in reference to the means whereby the interests of our fellow-countrymen may best be advanced.I do not for a moment suppose that I have exhausted the immense subject under review. The labours of our wisest statesmen and most careful thinkers would be requisite for the accomplishment of that task. My highest hope is that what I have written may perhaps induce some such men to turn their attention to it.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
