My Dear Sir
Many thanks for your valued
favor of 24th October, together with Dr Portins
able and interesting reply to Professor Tyndall
also the annual statement of the Ulster Bank
all of which I have pursued with much pleasure
and interest I am pleased to see such men as
Dr Porter and Dr Watts handling the professor
"without gloves" and am doubly pleased to learn
that Belfast is poor soil for materialism or
Atheism If Dr Montgomery or Dr Cook had
been alive they could scarcely have done more
than these two men in vindicating the great
truths of the gospel, but they have each gone
to their reward and I most sincerely hope their
mantle will fall upon others, yet I can hardly
ever expect to see their equals, in every particular,
in my day, and Ireland should always feel proud
of having produced such intellectual
Giants, While they differed in minor matters
they would have united in our grand effort
against Infidelity and Tyndall with all his
scientific ability would have dwindled into
insignificance our religious puss all over
the country gave him a lick and I think he
will hardly trouble you again in Belfast on
the same subject, The continued success
