Excerpt from The Action of the Commission of Assembly in Professor Smith's Case: Explained and VindicatedIn ordinary circumstances I should not have thought of entering on any public defence of the Commission's action. It has to come before next General Assembly, and be there judged of in the regular constitutional course. But it is well known that it has been violently assailed. No weapon has been spared, and no quarter has been given. We have had high-pitched overtures in Presbyteries, and combinations of office-bearers and others outside our Church courts. We have had manifestoes and memorials, speeches at meetings, and letters in the newspapers to an inordinate and wearisome extent. These proceedings are alike unusual and unseemly. They have a tendency to prejudge and prejudice the case before it is fully heard and competently tried. They are fitted to commit men to a certain line of view and action before they are in possession of the materials for arriving at a calm, wise, and impartial conclusion. Some of them are too open to the very charge which is brought against the decision to which they relate - the charge of being unconstitutional. Nothing but a strange excitement could have blinded so many generally sensible and candid men to the impropriety of the things which have been spoken and done in condemnation of the Commission's procedure.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
