Lathrop seeks "to unite PATRIOTISM and RELIGION, in the American character." Despite having been "ridiculed by some," Patriotism "properly cultivated, becomes an eminent moral virtue." Jesus, for example, was "a true patriot." Patriotism is especially necessary in this time of darkness, "when books are circulated, and columns of news-papers are constantly occupied to render both the Government and the religion of the country despicable."
