CRITICALLY EXAMINED

BY THE RIGHT REV.

JOHN WILLIAM COLENSO, D.D.

BISHOP OF NATAL,

"We can do nothing against the Truth, but for the Truth.'-St. Paul, 2 Cor. xiii.

'Not to exceed, and not to fall short of, facts, - not to add, and not to take away, - to
state the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,- are the grand, the vital,
maxims of Inductive Science, of English Law, and, let us add, of Christian Faith.'

Quarterly Review on 'Essays and Reviews, Oct. 1861, p. 369.

CONCLUDING REMARKS

SPEAK thou the Truth. Let others fence,

And trim their words for pay; In pleasant sunshine of pretence

Let others bask their day.

Guard thou the Fact: though clouds of night

Down on thy watch-tower stoop;
Though thou shouldst see thine heart's delight

Borne from thee by their swoop.

Face thou the wind. Though safer seem

In shelter to abide,
We were not made to sit and dream;

The safe must first be tried.

DEAN ALHORD.
