Excerpt from The Battle of Freedom: Including Seven Letters on Religious Liberty, Addressed to Bishop Spalding

After frequent solicitations from friends and strangers, in this city and State, and also in other States, communicated privately and publicly, I have, with unaffected hesitancy, given these pages to the public.

My intention was to make about half the book consist of sketches of the advocates of religious liberty in other times; but having to leave the city, on my return I found the letters printed off, leaving me but forty eight pages for the proposed sketches. This will account for the extreme condensation in the sixth chapter. The seventh letter was also written after it was concluded to publish them in the present form. The six others, first appeared in the Louisville Morning Courier.

Had I been in the city when the fourth letter was printed off, I should have omitted as many of the quotations as were from weekly Catholic newspapers. Their editors are (at the present time at least) considered entirely irresponsible; and it is an old trick of Jesuitism, to try to call away attention from the highest and authoritative sources of evidence, to the irresponsibility of an unendorsed editor, or his reckless denial of what is quoted, if a single letter or comma be misplaced.
