The wisdom of this Book

“I accept with gratitude and pleasure your gift of this inestimable Volume. It was for love of the truths of this great Book that our fathers abandoned their native shores for the wilderness. Animated by its lofty principles they toiled and suffered till the desert blossomed as a rose.

The same truths sustained them in their resolutions to become a free nation; and guided by the wisdom of this Book they founded a government under which we have grown from three million to more than twenty millions of people, and from being but a stock on the borders of this continent we have spread from the Atlantic to the Pacific.”
