- An 18th-century justification of the eating of meat.
"I. That it is not inconsistent with the external rules of natural justice and order, that God should impose an arbitrary, or positive law on mankind. II. That the human food at first was only the produce of the earth, with a reservation of one sort of fruit, and this interdiction immutable till the Deluge. III. That though a licence (from that Revelation) is granted for men to feed on the flesh of animals, it is under another restriction of the same kind with the former, probably immutable likewise to the second race of man, and the reasonableness of it being so."
