The prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel dined with me, and I asked them
 how they dared so roundly to assert that God spoke to them; and whatever they
 did not think at the time that they would be so misunderstood, & so be the
 cause of imposition. Isaiah answer'd: 'I saw no God, nor heard any, in a
 finite organical perception; but my senses discover'd the infinite in every
 thing, and as I was then persuaded, & remain confirm'd, that the voice of
 honest indignation is the voice of God, I cared not for consequences, but
 wrote.' Then I asked: 'Does a firm perswasion that a thing is so, make it so?'
 He replied: 'All poets believe that it does, & in ages of imagination this
 firm perswasion removed mountains; but many are not capable of a firm
 perswasion of any thing.' Then Ezekiel said: 'The philosophy of the east
 taught the first principles of human perception: some nations held one
 principle for the origin, & some another; we Israel taught that the poetic
 genius (as you now call it) was the first principle and all the others merely
 derivative, which was the cause of our despising the priests & philosophers
 of other countries, and prophecying that all gods would at last be proved to
 originate in ours & to be tributaries of the poetic genius; it was this that
 our great poet king David desired so fervently & invokes so pathetic'ly,
 saying this he conquers enemies & governs kingdoms; and we so loved our God,
 that we cursed in his name all the deities of surrounding nations and asserted
 that they had rebelled; from this opinions the vulgar came to thin that all
 nations would at last be subjected to the Jews. 'This' he said 'like all firm
 perswasions, is come to pass; for all nations belive the Jews' code and
 worship the Jews' God, and what the greater subjection can be?' I heard this
 with some wonder, & must confess my own convivtion. After dinner I ask'd
 Isaiah to favour the world with his lost works; he said none of equal value
 was lost. Ezekiel the same of his. I also asked Isaiah what made him go naked
 and bare foot three years? He answer'd: 'The same that made our friend
 Diogenes, the Grecian.' I then asked Ezekiel why he eat dung, & lay so long
 on his right & left side? He answer'd 'The desire of raising other men into
 perception of the infinite: this the North American tribes practise, & is he
 honest who resists his genius or conscience for this sake of present ease or
 gratification?
