7258. RELIGION, Reason and.—[continued].

Hitherto I have been
under the guidance of that portion of reason
which God has thought proper to deal out
to me. I have followed it faithfully in all
important cases, to such a degree at least as
leaves me without uneasiness; and if on
minor occasions I have erred from its dictates,
I have trust in Him who made us what
we are, and I know it was not His plan to
make us always unerring.—
To Miles King. Washington ed. vi, 388.
(M. 1814)
