Excerpt from The Duty of the Christian Scholar to the Masses: An Address Delivered Before the House of Convocation of Hobart Free College, Geneva; July 19, 1854
I know the reply of individualism is the answer of Cain, Am I my brother's keeper 2 It is the reply which a de votion to dollars and cents may prompt. But it is not that which becomes scholars, and patriots, and Christians. When we seek to elevate the masses, our labor is of little profit, unless they in turn extend the boon when we are gone, and in regions beyond the sphere of our inﬂuence. And we ill requite the sacrifices and labors of those who gave us our literary and religious advantages, if we use them but for our individual benefit.
