supported by her talent, for some years, her mother
and her younger sister. She looks almost better
in private than on the stage; the frank, blue
eye, the strong, intelligent forehead, and the
honest, sensible expression of her whole demeanor
and conversation make her company very desirable.

Sunday I heard Theodore Parker preach. He
made a full and free confession of his faith, and
I rejoiced to see his honesty and courage, although
I could not rejoice at the confession of faith in
itself, which was a very imperfect recognition of the
Christian revelation, and which acknowledged in
Christ merely a human and moral teacher, although,
as such, the model and ideal of humanity.
Parker belongs to the Unitarian body, and to that
section of it which denies miracles and everything
that requires supernatural agency in the sacred
history. What really displeased me was that
Parker asserted he regarded Christ as standing in
no other relation to God than did all mankind,
and that he merely was mentioned in history as “a
modest young man from Galilee.” How can a
lover of truth read the sacred history and
expressions such as these, “He who has seen me has seen
the Father;” “The Father is in me and I in Him,”
and many others of a similar kind, and yet make
such an assertion?
