Excerpt from A Plea for Vegetarianism, and Other Essays
In spite of these somewhat discouraging re?ections, I think it will be worth our while to inquire if there be really such great absurdity in the idea of not eating ?esh, or if it be possible that the Vegetarians have reason on their side, and that the present movement in favour of a reformed diet may contain the germ of an important change. However that may be, it Oan do no harm to my readers if they hear what can be said in favour of Vegetarianism; then, if they are not persuaded to adopt a ?eshless diet, they will have a clear' conscience, and be able to enjoy their beef and mutton all the more afterwards.
