    A document by Edward Hitchcock that appears to be intended as a conclusion to his work on the religion of geology, though it was not published. This document is written as if addressing a group, and emphasizes that not only are religion and science reconcilable, but that science provides evidence of the divine. Hitchcock also includes recommendations of other works to read to pursue further understanding. The item itself is undated. The date range provided comes from Hitchcock's preface to the 1854 published version of this work, which is dated May 1, 1851, and notes that these lectures were mostly written eight to ten years prior. less
