Let us trust woman with the torch of learning as we trust ourselves. Let us give her all the means of guiding her life that her brothers possess. It is no longer doubtful.
It is no longer doubtful - it is plain that woman ought to be enfranchised that the right to cultivate her intellectual nature should be hers, and that she should be the judge of how far she may go in exploring the mysteries of the natural world, the intricacies of the mind in its varied lines of action, and, in short, every branch of human knowledge.
It is chivalric for the stronger half of the human unit to give to the weaker her full opportunities in this respect, - it is just for man, trained through the ages in the use of his argumentative powers, to award this privilege to woman.
It is patriotic for the American to train his wife and his daughters in such a way that they can cultivate in their brothers and sons the highest traits of the noble citizen.
It is Christian for man to furnish to woman every opportunity for the improvement of her God-given talents, and to At her as well as himself for immortality.
