"This volume, commenced some years ago, in the form of lectures, addressed to pupils in a female seminary, is chiefly the labour of thought and experience. As a teacher, the author felt the necessity of a work on this important branch of science, adapted to the instruction of her own sex, and sought to draw from her own resources, as well as from the records of history and biography, such illustrations as might assist the mind in making a practical application of the leading facts of mental philosophy. This work, is based on the truth as we find it revealed in the sacred scriptures, and is not intended to enter into the intricate disquisitions of the metaphysical schools. The author, has not, however, been negligent in searching into the opinions of some of the best writers on this branch of science, and hopes, if not in perfect agreement, at least she will not be found in any great discordance with the sentiments of the wisest and the most esteemed. Truth, as it is found in reason and revelation is her object"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

The page reads: "captives would be ready for delivery. A duty was to be levied on each slave for the benefit of the royal revenue. In this way the colony would be furnished with all kinds of livestock free of expense; the peaceful invaders would be freed from warlike and inhuman neighbors; the royal treasury would be greatly enriched; and a vast number of souls would be snatched from perdition, and carried, as it were, by main force to heaven. Such is the strange sophistry by which upright men may sometimes deceive themselves. Columbus feared the disappointment of the sovereigns in respect to the product of his enterprises, and was anxious to devise some mode of lightening their expenses until he could open some ample source of profit. The conversion of infidels, by fair means or foul, by persuasion or force, was one of the popular tenets of the day; and in recommending the enslaving of the Caribs, Columbus thought that he was obeying the dictates of his conscience, when he was in reality listening to the incitements of his interest. It is but just to add, that the sovereigns did not accord with his [illegible], but ordered that the Caribs should be converted like the rest of the islanders."
