FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[From "Confessions of an Undistinguished Heretic" in The Independent.]

Experience has thus taught me not to be too rampant with my heresies. I have learned that if one keep his doctrinal discoveries in his study drawer for about five years, taking them out now and then to refresh his soul, allowing occasionally a delicate effluence from them to steal over a page or two of the next Sunday's sermon, he will find at the end of the period that he may avow them as violently as he pleases, and they who aforetime would have lit the torch for his burning will sit peaceably under his doctrine, and sing the last hymn lustily in satisfaction that they have heard once more truth they have always believed.
