Memoirs and Remains of John Oliphant, of Auburn, New-York : To Which Is Added His Funeral Sermon (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Memoirs and Remains of John Oliphant, of Auburn, New-York: To Which Is Added His Funeral Sermon His pious friends viewed his situation with deep anxiety; and with much distress of mind, did they anticipate the time, when they should be deprived of his fellowship on earth. Having often been animated, and comforted, by his friendly, and edify ing, conversation, they were led, fre quently, to request him to write an account of his religious experience; and also, to add to it, such counsel and advice, as he saw proper to give, 111 vigw of his enter ing into his rest, and leavrng them, in this world, of trial. To those who made this request, he replied; that he had been an unprofitable servant - that his life would be a poor example - and that he could not write any thing, worthy of no tice. But their importunity could take no denial. Feeling, very sensibly, that this request was dictated, and urged, by the partiality and affection, of real friendship, he, in a good-humoured way, agreed to do what he could; and set about it, while much afﬂicted with bodily disease.
