In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

MUD, n. [L. madeo.] Moist and soft earth of any kind, such as is found in marshes and swamps, at the bottom or rivers and ponds, or in highways after rain.

MUD, v.t. To bury in mud or slime.

1. To make turbid or foul with dirt; to stir the sediment in liquors.

MUD, n. [D. modder; G. moder. See Mother. Εκ του αυτου συμπλοκης του πνευματος εγενετο μωτ. Τουτο τινες φασιν ιλυν, οιδε ὑδατωδους μιξεως σηψιν. Mot, id est, mod; Phœnices ita scribebant. Bochart, Phœn. Lib. 2, Cap. 2. This is said to be a fragment of Sanchoniathon's Phenician history, translated by Philo and preserved by Eusebius. Thus Phenician word mod, μωτ, rendered in Gr. ιλυς, is precisely the English mud, the matter, material or substance of which, according to the ancients, all things were formed. See Castel. Col. 2010, and the word Mother. Plutarch, de Iside, says the Egyptians called Isis muth, that is, mother. This is a remarkable fact, and proves beyond controversy the common origin of the Phenician, Celtic and Teutonic nations. Mud may perhaps be named from wetness, and be connected with L. madeo, Gr. μυδαω; W. mwydaw, to wet.]

Moist and soft earth of any kind, such as is found in marshes and swamps, at the bottom of rivers and ponds, or in highways after rain.

Noah's 1828 Dictionary

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

* As a note, I have purchased each of these products. In fact, as we have been developing the Project:: 1828 Reprint, I have purchased several of the bulky hard-cover dictionaries. My opinion is that the 2000-page hard-cover edition is the only good viable solution at this time. The compact edition was a bit disappointing and the CD-ROM as well.
