    Concludes: 'The very copious extracts which we have given, will secure us, we trust, from the imputation of having wilfully misrepresented the facts, opinions, and reasonings, which it contains. [...] a regard for the truth obliges us to declare, we have found in it a much less profound discussion of the subject, than, from the well-known talents and information of the author, we were prepared to expect' (244).
