Excerpt: ... gether to slaughter, each other, upon the field of battle, or upon the bosom of the deep. Nor will a pacific behaviour be confined to those nations alone, which are entitled civilized. The various tribes of favages, that inhabit the less frequented (climes, having undergone a revolution in their manners and their situation, will relinquish the use of the arrow and the spear, the battle-ax and the scalping-knise. In the treatment of diseases, and in the cure of wounds, ignorance and inexperience will cease to be a fruitful source of the destruction of lise; and no longer will men be swept away in crowds by those contagious disorders, which care and skill are capable of remedying. Nor will they prematurely destroy themselves by a course of debauchery or by habits of intoxication. Sorrow and pain, also, in comparison of the ascendant they formerly had upon the globe, may be faid to be exeluded from it; for with the former things, which are fajsed away, with Bad Government and False Religion, not only war, discord, and pestilence will, in a great degree, be banished from the world; but also those other evils which naturally flow from the fame sources, sloth and ignorance, hypocrisy and persecution, superstition and infidelity, excessive poverty and intemperate labour.
