and pastors worthy of such endowments,--that in every place we might see piety the elm
to every other vine, the supporter to every other profession,-learning adorned with piety,
and law administered with piety, and counsels managed with piety, and trade regulated with
piety, and the plough followed with piety. This would be the sui est magazine to secure the
happiness of a kingdom.”-ReYNULDS.
