The progress of truth is onward, with Omnipotent power and strength; and although obstacles may interpose to retard its progress for a moment, yet as if strengthened by this very opposition, it moves forward in awful majesty, crushing all things else beneath its weight, or blowing them away like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, until becoming a great mountain, it fills the whole earth, and ushers in the reign of universal peace. Americans, read, ponder, weigh and consider, and act accordingly. [p. v]
