Excerpt from Heaven and Hell: Or, a Vision of the Judgement Day, From an Orthodox Standpoint

This little poem, written years ago, not for publication, but supply as an outburst of thought, upon the all-important subject of Heaven and Hell, or Man's Final Destiny - written when it was almost considered Treason against the law of Almighty God to let the light of reason shine upon the sacred pages of the Bible - written when the horrible terrors of the law were sounded from nearly every sactuary in the land, when the lash of tyranny was held daily over the heads of the people by satin-robed priests and broad-clothed clergy, commanding a feigned respect and obedience to a God whose character and designs they dared not question or try to investigate, lest they be considered Heretics or Lunatics; and not wishing to be branded as either, save a few public and parlor readings, I have kept my production incoy.

But now, since this great tidal wave of freedom of thought and speech has come sweeping over the world, washing out the old ruts of prejudice and superstition. I have been induced to launch my little bark upon its waters. And I do it with a consciousness that if there is anything contained in these simple rhymes that will throw the least light upon this still dark and mysterious subject, I have no right to longer "hide them under a bushel."

For, I believe, if we have one thing above another which we can call our own, it is our reasoning faculties. And, I also believe that it is a sin against our Maker not to exercise them to the fullest extent.
