Not illustrated. 1856 edition. Excerpt: ...to the New-England Conference, and stationed 'Three Rivers. Quest. 18. Where and when shall our not Conference be held T At Newmarket, Rockingham co., N.II May 8th, 1850. Quest. 12. Who have died this year? Samuel Prescott was born in Pembroke, N. H., in 1804, and converted in April. 1829, under the united labors of Rev. John Broadhead and others, at Amoskeag Falls. He was licensed to preach at Newmarket in 1833, and joined the New-Hampshire Conference in 1834. For thirteen years he was an effective laborer, filling several important stations with great acceptability and usefulness. Two years ago, his health failing him, he was returned superannuated, and continued in this relation until his death, which occurred at Meredith Bridge, on Saturday, April 7th, 1849; leaving behind a wife and four children. His last sickness was short--fever affected his system generally, but seized the brain with a fatal grasp, dethroned reason, and held him in almost constant delirious excitement. For six days he lingered in great and increasing suffering, when he sweetly fell asleep in Jesus. His last words were, when asked if he thought he should recover, "All the day of my appointed time have I lived;" and then, with uplifted eyes and hands, he exclaimed, "O, blessed God! thou comfortest me." He rests low in the ground, but with him are not buried his virtuous example and Christian influence. "He, being dead, yet speaketh." NEW-YORK EAST CONFERENCE, May 30, 1849. Quest. 1. Who are admitted on trial? Quest. 5. Who have been elected and or-dained Elders this year! George W. Woodruff, Eliphalet P. Ackerman, Robert Codling, Horatio N. Weed, George A. Hubbell, William W Allister, George Taylor--7. James M'Bride, Daniel W....show more
