The writer claims that, 'Observation is one of principal ways by which knowledge is obtained, and nature the book, which is given to all, and suited to every capacity'. The divine attributes are displayed in all aspects of creation, great and small: 'Thus knowledge may be acquired without labour or expense. Those who have time and means may enter more deeply into these subjects by perusing books which treat of them'. The writer considers, however, that true wisdom must be sought in revelation.
