ON GENIUS:

IN WHICH

IT IS ATTEMPTED TO BE PROVED,

THAT THERE IS

NO MENTAL DISTINCTION AMONG MANKIND.

BY W. GRISENTHWAITE,

AUTHOR OF A REFUTATION OF T. Paine's AGE OF REASON;" AND A

NEW THEORY OF AGRICULTURE,” SECOND EDITION.

“Fancy next
Her office holds ; of all external things
Which the five watchful senses represent
She forms imaginations, aery shapes,
Which reason joining or disjoining, frames
All what we affirm or what deny, and call
Our knowledge or opinion."

MILTON.

“Sensus, de quibus loquimur, quinque sunt; visus, aaditus, odoratus, gustus, et tactus. Hi aut in corpore sunt, aut circa corpus, solisque sunt caducis corporibus familiares. Anima vero, omni corpore, ipsa divinior est. Multo magis anima majoris est majestatis, quam ut sensu egeat." MACROBIUS.
