OF

REVEALED RELIGION.

BY

HENRY DRUMMOND, ESQ.

“I wish very much to see, before my death, an image of a primitive Christian
Church. With little improvements, I think the Roman Catholic Church of
Ireland very capable of exhibiting that state of things. I should not, by force,
or fraud, or rapine, have ever reduced them to their present state. God forbid !
But being in it, I conceive that much may be made of it, to the glory of religion,
and the good of the state. If the other was willing to hear of any melioration, it
might, without any strong, perceivable change, be rendered much more useful.
But prosperity is not apt to receive good lessons, nor always to give them ; re.
baptism you won't allow, but truly it would not be amiss for the Christian world
to be re-christened."
