Summary

The brightness of the moon and the glory of the stars astonishingly brilliant as they are when 17"18 VIEW OF NATURE AND ARCHITECTURE seen through the clear Indian atmosphere does not seem to excite admiration in spite of the divine attributes which Hindus ascribe to such objects. [...] Christianity does something in this direction by extending the range of mental vision to the possibilities of the heavenly country and the knowledge of God as the Creator excites a measure of interest in the objects of Hia creation. [...] But the value of the offering is in the scent of the flower and not in the beauty of its colour or form. [...] The beautiful figure of the Crucifixion with Our Lady and St John above the high altar worked in silk and gold they looked at and discussed with much apprecition of the skilled needlework and the richness of the materials. [...] The value of a money order is brought in cash by the postman and paid into your hand and the receipt that you sign is returned by the post office to the sender and there is no possibility of your being defrauded because if the money goes wrong on its way to you the post office is responsible.
