Excerpt from A Colloquy on the Necessity of Clergy in GovernmentThis "Colloquy on the Necessity of Clergy in Government" reproduces vividly the passions, prejudices and political opinions of the period from 1795 until 1815 and after. It was evidently written about 1800 by a New Englander of very moderate Federalistic beliefs.The characters in the Colloquy are three. Grenville voices the convictions of that intolerable wing of the intolerant "Boston Faction," the Essex Junto, which was never noted for sweet reasonableness, broad political intelligence, or, after 1800, for patriotism. In him Fisher Ames and Timothy Pickering at their worst, struggle for utterance. While in his antagonist Belmont the rabid or foolish sentiments and delusions of Thomas Jefferson, Gideon Granger, Abraham Bishop or Benjamin Austin are fully exploited Lawrence is no less unusual and far from typical in his ideas. He presents the viewpoint of an extremely liberal and tolerant Federalist. Persons of such beliefs together with the average moderate Federalist were responsible for the failure of the disunionist faction of their party to carry out its treasonable designs between 1800 and 1815.The title, however, is a misnomer, for there is almost nothing in the Colloquy concerning this "Necessity of the Clergy in Government."About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
