Religious education Young Joseph was able to read and ponder scriptures.
Joseph also attended Protestant church services and apparently studied the Bible in depth. Mother, I do not wish to prevent your going to [church], or any of the rest of the family; or your joining any church you please; but, do not ask me to join them.
