Excerpt from An Apology for Promoting Christianity in India

It is proper I should say something en the sub the Second Letter in thefollowmg pages. In three publications concerning India, vii. A Memoir of the Expediency of an Ecclesiastical Establishment, the Christian Researches in Asia, and the Brief View of the State of the British Colonies in Rebpect'to Religious Instruc tion, there is no exposition of the peculiar sub jcet of that letter. And it is most certain, that it would not now have been given, had not an at tempt been made, in a paper laid before the Council of the Nation, to represent the 1' sculp tures on the walls of Juggernaut as being as harmless, in regard to their moral efi'ect on the Hindoos, as the figures on an Etruscan vase are to us: from which the conclusion naturally would be, that the worship of the Hindoos is not more contaminated by indelicacy than that of the English.
