: "The question is solely an intellectual one, and must be solved
through educational means. It assumes the aspect of an educational duel
between the mercantile population of this country and their competitors

infused into society some of the most purifying and life-giving
influences. Many of the first settlers were among the best educated men
of England, and they recognized that education was the corner-stone of
civil and religious liberty. Pembroke, Delaware, William Penn, Roger
Williams, the Winthrops, and a large number of worthy men who settled in
the early colonies came from the classical shades of Oxford and
Cambridge, and retained the educational predilections which were so
