Summary
"There has been no end, and there appears no prospect of an end to the appeal to the people on their civil rights and privileges. The press teems with folios which are scattered many times a week, through the whole community, displaying to the American people the rights of man, and stimulating them to the extreme point of the demand. Let no one object to this work for which there are so many ready and active hands, if the Patriots of the periodical press will be the steady advocates of principles, instead of the vacillating organs and instruments of party zeal. It is grateful however to perceive an aspiring in the spirits of the people, for a higher liberty;--a liberty of the noblest character, which has no blood to shed in revolutionary battles; and no party warfare to maintain in its extension and establishment; a liberty which makes man Free on whatever soil he treads, and under whatever government he lives; and which, if by the favor of Providence, it should become as universal as the elective franchise would secure the civil liberty and the happiness of our country, and make the United States the example and the ornament of the human race. Every conscientious and careful Student in the common walks of life is a specimen of such a freedom--The freedom of the mind. If there had not been many such, our civil freedom would never have been either conceived or realised; and if it should be perverted or lost, it sill be because their number and worth, have not increased with the growth and the necessities of the country. The Lyceum, is a hall of patriotism for the union, and improvement; for the influence and increase of such freemen, which will do more for the cause of civil liberty, than the caucusses of party politics. For if its plans are carried into execution, if its designs prevail, it will produce a community, which the sophistry of party zeal will not long assail, because it cannot with its fickle light be forever exciting and misguiding them: over which ignorance and baseness would not dare to rule, even if such a people would construct a ladder for their ascent to the heights of office"--Preface.
