Excerpt from The True History of Moses, Aaron, Joshua, and Others: Deduced From a Review of the Bible, Also, Remarks on the Morals of the Old and New Testament, and Some of the Ancient Philosophers

In reviewing what is called the "Old Testament," and its offspring, the "New Testament," I treat of these books as they are given to the mass of the people. I am aware that the learned are in a continual uproar, and have been for at least fifteen hundred years, contending as to when the different books contained in these two Testaments were written by whom written; and whether the writers of them were or were not divinely inspired; and though the laboring classes have paid millions on millions of dollars, and millions of dollars' worth of property to these wranglers, (for they are generally clergymen,) they are much further from being agreed now than they were a thousand years ago. But in one thing they have generally agreed - that is, in deceiving and swindling the mass of the people.

"What makes all doctrines plain and clear?
Why, twice two hundred pounds a year."
