Abstract:

"We, single ladies and gentlemen of the nineteenth century, know our strength. And, if we were not morally a great deal better than any other class in the world, our married friends (or foes) might some day have more to fear from our combined strength and numbers, than the haughty Romans had to fear from the number and label of their bondmen. First, we admit that there is a lameness in making every individual, of 'A greatly sinning race, ' so perfect, as these writers have done. But that was because they did not read their Bibles through when they were looking up evidence. If they had read into the New Testament, they would have seen, that all those whom they call great sinners, St. Paul considered the best of men, - what they consider "the only objection" that can be urged against these bachelors, "the worst that can be said of them, " and so on, St. Paul considers their crowning virtues. "He is a bachelor" was not "the worst that was said" of St. Paul. And among the seventy or eighty bachelors, whose names are before us, there is one, we confess, whom we wish was marriedhe ought to have been long ago. He is by no means a worthy member of our class; though he might pass very well among married men. If he would only marry, we are almost certain that the Fraternity would pay the expenses of the wedding. We agree with certain writers, that, 'it would be a shocking pity if this rare genius were any thing else, ' but a married man"--Introduction.
