Excerpt from Rev. Thomas Bacon, 1745-1768, Incumbent of St. Peter's, Talbot Co., And All Saints, Frederick Co., Maryland
The text which forms the ground-work of these four Ser mons, is Col. Iv 1. Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal, knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven. After an exceedingly appropriate introduction, in which is considered the great principle of the text, Mr. Bacon lays down the particular obligation drawn from it, announced in the title page, and then goes on to consider, first, the nature of this obligation; secondly, the advantages attending a due compliance therewith thirdly, the common excuses and objec tions which are made concerning it and lastly, in what manner this duty may best be performed, to the discharging of our con sciences, and with the greatest probability of success.
The consideration of these four points, occupies his four Sermons. To say that his language, in discussing them, is classical, yet plain his thoughts fresh, yet clear his positions sustained ably and conclusively, and sometimes eloquently; and that the Gospel is distinctly and faithfully presented and all with the most intrepid, yet affectionate and Christian spirit, - is saying only what is true, simply true.
