THE following treatise is only a contribution toward reverential thought upon divine things and not an effort to end controversy. What it omits of sacred truth is not, therefore, to be held as denied, doubted or even slighted; and what it dwells upon is not purposely pushed forward into relatively undue prominence.
This little work does not presume to rebuild the ruins of the observatories of this or that school, but rather to show that patience and reverence and spirituality can study the heavens. anywhere in the open fields. It is written in hope that it may strengthen faith and courage in the hearts of some that falter, panic-stricken over the perils which in this age beset the cause of religion; and it utters the firm and calm belief of the author, that, though stand-points may change and conceptions enlarge, the Truth will prevail.
