which as aincei jjt a scandal to tho

MR. JEFFERSON TO MR. WESDOVER.
Montioello, March 18, 1815,
Sir : On one question only I differ
from him, and it is that which constitutes
the subject of bis disoouree the right of
discussion ot public affsirs in tho pulpit. 1
add .tho last words because I admit the
right in general conversation and in
writing, in which lost form it has been
exercised in the admirable book yon have
now favored mo with. it.
The mass of human conocrns, moral
and physical, is lo vast, iho ficliof knowl
edge requisite for man to conduct them to
the best advantage is so extensive, that
no human being can acquire the whole
himself, and much loss in the dfljireo nco
essnry for the iiutruolion of others. It
has of necessity then boon distributed in.
to different departments, each of which,
Mngly, may give occupation enough to
tho whole time and attention of a single
individual. ' Thus wa havo teadicrs of
languages, ; teachers of mathematics, of
nataral philosophy, of chemistry, of med
ioine. nf law. of history, of rovcinment,
etc Religion, t!o, is.a separate dcftttegenfcr2ato Empire.

associates together under the name of as
socintions, and employ a religious teacher
of tbe particular seet or opinicu or winch
they happen to bo, and contribute totnuke
up a slipend as a compensation "for the
trouble of delivering them at such peri'ofr:
as they agree on. lessons in tho religion
they profess.': If they want instruction in'
in -other scitneo and arts they apply to
other instructors; and this is generally
tho business of early ma. But 1 suppis?
there is hot a single instance of a con ere
galinn which has employed their preacher!
tor tho mixed purpo e ot lecturing then1
from tho pulpit in chemistry in medicine.
in the sciences and principles of govern
ment, or in anything but religion exclu
sively. Whenever, therefore, preachers
instead of a lesson in religion, put them
off with a disoourse on the Copcrnican
,;yslein, on ohemionl othmtcs, on tho con
siruclion of government or conduct of
those administering it, it is a 4ireaoh of
contract, depriving their nuuionco of the
kind nf service forwhiuh they aio salaried,
and giving them instead ot what they did
not w nt, of if wanted would rather seek
from better sconrses In that particular art
ersoiencr. In choosing our pastor, we look
to religious qtialificaiions, without inquir
ing into his physical or political dogmas,
whth which we mean to hove nothing to
do. 1 am awaro that arguments may be
found, whioh may twist a (bread of pqli
tics. into the cord of religious duties' . 80
may they for' every otlior branch of hu
man art br ecionoe. . ' " . . .
Thus, for example, It is a religious duly
tooboytho lawaof our country ; the teach
er of .religion,, therefore, must instruot
us in those laws, that we may know how
to obey thorn. It is a religious duty lo
assist our sick neighbors ; tho preacher
must, there-lore, teach ns medicine, that
wc may do it nndoTwtandtngly. It is a
religious duty to preservo our health; our
religions teacher, then; must tell us what
dislioj are wholesome, and givo us" recipes
for c'd'okcry, thotw may know. how to
prepare them. . And so ingenuity, by
generalising more ana more, may amalga
mate all brnnolios of soienoea into any one
of them ; and the physician,' who is paid
to. visit the sick, may gavo a sermon in
stead of medicno; and, the merchant, to
whom money is sent for a hat, may send a
haodkorchii't instead or. it - A reeipo in
mcdioine or cookery, or a demonstration
in geometry, is not a lesson in religion.
I do not deny that a congregation may, if
t.iioy please, agroa with their preacher
mat he shall instruot them in medicine
also, or law, or politics. Then lcoturcs in
these from the pulpit becomo not only a
matter ol r'ght but ot duty also. But
this must be with tho consont of every in
dividual, because the association being
voluntary, the more majority his no right
to apply the contributions of the minority
to putposes unspecified in the agreement
ol tho congregation-' '.'. ,
