In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

7. In chimistry, a substance employed to detect any unknown constituent of a compound, by causing it to exhibit some known property.

In England, an oath and declaration against transubstantiation, which all officers, civil and military, are obliged to take within six months after their admission.

The test of 7 Jac.1. was removed in 1753.

The true way of testing its character, is to suppose it [the system] will be persevered in.

Experience is the surest standard by which to test the real tendency of the existing constitution.

In order to test the correctness of this system--

This expedient has been already tested.

1. To attest and date; as a writing tested on such a day.

About 1828

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.
