Excerpt from Discourses From the Pulpit
The several Authors, to whom I am indebted, it is possible, may not, in every instance, be properly credited. If so, it has not been intentional. But it results from the fact, that in many instances, it was impossible for me to tell Whether the thought, or mode of expression, was my own, growing out of the inspiration of the sub ject, or received from some Author, read years ago, whose sentiments and language, I had made my own. This must serve as my apology, as it has been my inten tion, always, to give honor where honor was due.
The Book is mainly intended as a memorial, for the friends of my youth, and such as have been companions of my riper years. Yet the subjects are of general in terest; and it is fondly hoped, that they are discussed, and illustrated, in such a way as to interest and profit the public generally. The Discourses are my own, and pre sented by myself, to my friends, and the public, in this brief Introduction.
