Lettering

If this science be cultivated, I doubt not but the time will come when on hiring a servant, an examination of the organick manifestations of the mental faculties as developed on the superficies of the pericranium, will supersede the necessity of further enquiry into character. See lecture on phrenology. W Taylor del et sc.
