for wordy eloquence, a source of subjects for pictorial talent that has evolved grouping, features and circumstances, from it own consciousness ; its has been written as a poem, but without the inspiration of poetry, as philosophy without the thoughtfulness or humility of the true philosophic spirit ; it has been written for readers already known, counted and pandered to. What wonder that there are few who love it for its own sake, when there are so few who know it as it is ! In this respect, as I have said, I hope and trust that the better time is coming, when the universality of the training and the outpouring of the sources of knowledge will make imposture futile, and adulteration unprofitable. I hope and trust that in that good time our training here will be found to be a part of the true higher training, and the knowledge acquired in it to'lead up to the true and highest Knowledge.
