Unitarian, A. (______)

to (Orestes A. Brownson) (______)

The Unitarian says that in Brownson's article on the appeal of the case of Lady Henly's charities to the House of Lords, Brownson quoted Mr. Justice Erskine as saying, "they who denied the Trinity were blasphemous." In explaining this the Unitarian says that at the time the deed of Lady Henly's bequest, part of which was for "Godly ministers", was executed, all who denied the Trinity were declared blasphemous by law. Mr. Erskine did not intend to infer that Unitarians were blasphemous but rather that ministers of that denomination could not be included in this division of "Godly ministers."
