Now, the argument of this Essay is in entire agreement with this doctrine, inasmuch as it was from the first assumed (p.9) that immortality cannot consist with any other than a state of righteousness, and then (pp and 20) it was argued that after Adam's transgression a promise was made that himself and his race would eventually be exempt.
