Annotation

Victoria is presented as a future eutopia in which Christianity has produced a prosperous, well-educated, good population. Discusses commerce; the beauty of the city and its architecture, education, particularly religious education; agriculture; manufacturing; culture; and government, among other topics. The greatest obstacles, a poorly raised and educated younger generation and lack of religion, can be overcome by teaching children obedience and respect for their parents and God.
