§ One of Cardinal Newman's "IX Discourses Addressed to the Catholics of Dublin," a popular essay often given to young men starting out in life in attractively printed editions such as this, which perhaps was not the Cardinal's intent. Newman's gentlemen is "one who never inflicts pain." "He knows the weakness of human reason as well as its strength, its province, and its limits." He may even be an unbeliever if he supports religious toleration. Item #124176
