Love, Marriage, and Divorce (1853/1889)

NOTICE BY MR. GREELEY

LMD-6.1 We acknowledge the receipt of MRS. E. OAKES SMITH’s promised exposition of her views on the Divorce Question, which we shall publish soon. But we have had one much longer on hand from MR. S. P. ANDREWS, which we shall print first, though we consider its doctrines eminently detestable, while Mrs. Smith’s conclusions are just, though her way of looking at the question differs somewhat from ours.
LMD-6.2 The world is full of perilous fallacies and sophisms respecting Marriage and Divorce, which, we are confident, are mischievous only because they burrow in darkness and are permitted to do their deadly work unopposed. Let them be exposed to the light of discussion, and they will, they must, be divested of their baneful power. We hope to do our share toward this consummation.
