Mr. Pike’s Philosophia Sacra
Tue 26 Oct 1756: I began reading over with the preachers that were in town Mr. Pike’s Philosophia Sacra. It contains the marrow of Mr. Hutchinson’s philosophy clearly and modestly proposed. But upon a close examination I found the proofs were grievously defective. I shall never receive Mr. Hutchinson’s creed, unless ipse dixit pass for evidence.
