2ndly. We must acknowledge that the diversity among animals is a fact determined by the will of the Creator, and that their geographical distribution forms a part of the general plan which unites all organized beings into one great organic conception; whence it follows, that what are called human races, including their early separate existence as nations, are distinct primordial forms of the types of man.
In future, the coincidence between the boundaries of the races of man and the natural limits of different zoological provinces must remain an important element in ethnographical studies ; and no theory of the distribution of the races of man and of their migrations can henceforward be satisfactory which does not recognize the fact of such a remarkable coincidence.
From this investigation an important inference may be drawn, which cannot fail to have its influence upon
the further study of the human races, namely, that the laws which regulate the diversity of animals, and their distribution upon earth, apply equally to man, within the same limits, and in the same degree; and that all our liberty and moral responsibility, however spontaneous, are yet instinctively directed by the Allwise and Omnipotent to fulfil the great harmonies established in nature*]
