Description

Excerpt from A Discourse Pronounced at the Funeral Obsequies of John Hooker Ashmun, Esq., Royall Professor of Law in Harvard University, Before the President, Fellows, and Faculty, in the Chapel of the University, April 5, 1833 Thoughts, like these, if rightly improved, have a natural tendency to make us wiser, and holier, and better. They enable us to feel, as it were, the yet distant evils; to administer to the calamities of others with a soothing kindness; to warm, as well as to exalt, our own virtues; and to cherish habitually that compassionate tenderness, which, when the day of our own visitation shall arrive, will be found one of the surest sources of earthly comfort. They prepare us also for the higher consolations of reli gion for those sublime views of another and a bet ter world, which Christianity has unfolded with such inexpressible glory, when this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality.
