Excerpt from Plain Sermons on Personal Religion
The Sermons were selected, not with reference to the special seasons of the Church year, nor to any plan of systematic doc trinal teaching, but to the obligations of personal religion, and to the directness of their appeals to the hearts and consciences of men.
The memoir, at first written merely to furnish the Bishop with material for a sketch of his own, was afterward altered, at his suggestion, so as to enable him to use it in its present form. In one conversation on the subject, he named two or three brethren, clerical and lay, to whom he should apply for the expression of their sentiments in regard to the work and character of the deceased. The extracts at the end of the sketch are given ln accordance with this design - the first from one of the clergy men whom he named - the other from the pen of a distinguished layman.
