Quotation (1854)

'Vegetarians argue that what was best at the beginning is best now; by distinguishing between appointment and permission harmonize God with His attributes, and with His several approvals of abstinence from flesh and his warnings to avoid it; the evidently greater reconcilement of mercy and peace with such practice than now exists, and the further assurance of prophecy that a time will come when "they shall not hurt or destroy".' From an anonymous letter published in The Vegetarian Messenger (January 1854)
