Piety, Theology of Nature

    Disgusted with the 'false doctrine' taught at the Protestant chapel, the narrator and his family decided to climb an adjacent hill and 'breathe the mountain air' in the belief that 'if man will not instruct us in the truth, the works of the Creator will speak a better language—for the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament telleth his handy works' (294).
