The great thing in the Church is Christ,—the eternal deity of Christ, the blood of Christ, the Spirit of Christ, the presence

of Christ among us. The great thing is Christ, but there is also advantage in a certain government of the Church. I
am a Presbyterian, not only of situation, but of conviction and choice. Our Presbyterian way is the good middle way
between Episcopacy on the one side, and Congregationalism on the other. We combine the two great principles that
must be maintained in the Church-Order and Liberty; the order of government, and the liberty of the people.-
MERLE D'AUBIONE.
