Luther, while he was yet with us, gave us reason to hope that he might himself, narrate the story of his life, with the circumstances of' (the Reformation) conflict; and this he would undoubtedly have accomplished, had he not been so soon called out of this mortal existence, into the eternal fellowship of God, and of his children in heaven. Profitable indeed, would have been the contemplation of his private life, clearly set forth, for it was full of examples calculated to confirm in after times, the piety of the wise-hearted; and profitable also would have been the recital of events which might tend largely to the information of posterity. Such a work would also have refuted the accusations of those who profess that Luther, incited by the principal men of the day, or possibly by others, to seek the downfall of Episcopal power and dignity, or inflamed by personal ambition, had become the instrument in loosing the bands of monastic thralldom.
