To the Editor:—  In the Aug. 4 issue of The Journal (181:437) 1962, there is an editorial concerning the Reverend Joseph Priestly who "spoke from the pulpit as a heterodox minister." More explicitly, Reverend Priestly was a Unitarian minister who established in Philadelphia in 1796 the first Unitarian Church in the United States. I may add that this is the same heterodox theology which nurtured Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Florence Nightingale, and which continues to nurture such people as Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
