Excerpt from The Harmony of Phrenology With Scripture: Shewn in a Refutation of the Philosophical Errors
Although, during the first seven years after its publication, I did not consider an answer called for, seeing that it seemed to have excited little attention; the case was altered after it appeared that the sale of it had increased to many thousands, among a class of readers not the best fitted to detect its fallacies; nd that it was circulated chieﬂy in those places where the population had far outgrown the means of proper Church accommodation; and where, of course, it was offered to the people not along with, but in lieu of, religious instruction. It was then pressed upon me by several friends, that the work ought to be answered, and that I ought to under take the task, as I understood the subject of Phrenology, as maintained and taught by Mr Combe, and was able to address him in his own language and that as I had formerly studied his book with the view of answering it, the labour was already half performed.
