THOMAS CHADLKH, Fretident, Ronr.nT B. Olazkif.h, . . Maria L. Morr, "'. ADRIAN, Mich., Oct. 18,1852. To The Friends of Free Discussion. The undersigned solicitous for the ad vancement of tho cnuse of Truth and Hu manity, hereby invite all who are friendly to free discussion, to nttctid a Convention to tio held at Salem, Ohio, on Saturday, Sunday an.l Mn.i.lnv. 27ih. (Mil, nn.l CNnm. , ," . ' , , , r"i-i ...... .....j canvassing- the ORIGIN, AUTHOR IT V AND INFLL'F.XCi: OF TIIK JKU ISlI AM) CHRISTIAN SCRIPTIRKS. This invitation is not given to any particu lar class of Philosophers, Theologians or Thinkers, but is in good faith, extended to all who feel an interest in tha examination of tho questions nbovo stated. Thero me many who believe tlmt a supernatural Reve lation has been given to man ; many others who deny this, ami a large number who are afflicted with perplexing doubts trembling between the silent skepticism of their renson and the leor of absolute denial. In issuing a call for a Convention wo have in view tho correction of error by which party soever entertained, nud the relief of those who stand between doubt nud I'cur from their enibairus sing position, Soino tuny have no doubt tint the Jewish and Christian Scriptures have subserved an important end, and yet believe that their mission is nearly completed and must be siqicrceded by a new dispensation ; soma may believe that their influence bag been prejudicial in every respect, and that they buve been a curse rather than a blessing to mankind, others inny believe them a perfect record of tho Divine will to man gootl in thu pnst and for nil time to come; and others still inny deny the plennry inspiration of thu llihlo, discarding much of the Old Testn ment, nnd receiving must or nil of tha New. Still such diversity of opinion instead of prejudicing thu Interest und good results which ought to attend such a Convention, will rather tend to increase its interest nnd enhance ils value to tho cause of Truth. Doubtless a free interchange of thought is tho best mode of exciting inquiry nud of ar riving nt thu Truth. Ho who has a Truth and keeps it, Keeps what not to him belongs; But performs a selllsh action And his fellow mortul wrongs," We invite, therefore, nil who feel an Inte rest in this question, without distinction of sex, color, sect, or pnrty, lo como together, that we may sit down liko brethren in a communion before tho altar of intellecliiul and spiritual Freedom.
