CommentsAnother response to Paine's The Age of Reason, Parts I & II, by the Welsh clergyman Thomas Williams (1760-1844), who defends Christianity against the salvos of freethinkers like Paine, but Williams is careful to point out that he wishes no "personal abuse" to his subject "Mr. P . . . My object is rather to provide an antidote against the growing infidelity of the age." Bookplate on the front paste-down of the Congregational Chapel, Milverton.
