    Discussing what are viewed as the injurious effects of Catholicism in Spain, avers that the oscillations in the 'Continental States' between atheism and superstition are being used by 'Providence' to teach 'the grand lesson, that national prosperity, happiness, and improvement, can find no solid foundation but upon the principles of true Christianity'. Observes: 'This lesson is daily becoming more visible in the disquietudes and wretchedness of every nation which fights against the truth, and in the contrast which it presents to those countries which recognize and respect it, in point of public character, enterprise, commerce, science, and general welfare'. (748)
