A Christian View of Writing from the 19th Century

May His Spirit lead the thoughts and guide the pen, so that not a sentence may be committed to writing that is not in accordance with His holy mind. May every page and every paragraph bear the stamp of His approval, and be at once conducive to His glory and the permanent profit of the reader.

C. H. Mackintosh, Notes on Numbers, (New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1870), 1-2.
