Mrs. Haskell's idea in founding the Barrows Lec tures in India was a noble one. With broad catholicity Of spirit she recognised the essential truth which is common to all forms Of religious thought, and realised that men are prone to quarrel about diversities rather than to rejoice in the elements Of unity. With this view it seemed to her that the essential Christian doctrines might well be presented to the acute Eastern mind in SO unpolemic and yet cogent a form as to win appreciation of their beauty and power far more than is possible from the customary preaching Of the gospel. The Indian is not a heathen, but is a man Of deep religious life and profound philosophy. He is worthy to be approached by a similar mind.
