Page 48 - He spoke of his old age as among the happiest portions, if not the very happiest, in his life. In conversation his religion manifested itself in gratitude more frequently than in any other form. When I have visited him in his last years, and looked on his serene countenance, and heard his cheerful voice, and seen the youthful earnestness with which he was reading a variety of books and studying the great interests of humanity, I have felt how little of this outward world is needed to our happiness....
Page 46 - Within a few days, a great and good man, a singular example of the philanthropy which Jesus Christ came to breathe into the world, has been taken away ; and as it was my happiness to know him more intimately than most among us, I feel as if I were called to bear a testimony to his rare goodness, and to hold up his example as a manifestation of what Christianity can accomplish in the human mind. I refer to the Rev. Noah Worcester, who has been justly called the Apostle of Peace, who finished his course....
Page 48 - ... for his whole life was a conflict with what he thought error. He made no compromise with the world, and yet he loved it as deeply and constantly as if it had responded in shouts to all his views and feelings. The next great impression which I received from him, was that of the sufficiency of the mind to its own happiness, or of its independence on outward things.
Page 44 - It is an unspeakable Loss to the Town, that he was taken away in the midst of his days, and in so sudden a Manner, as to prevent his making Provision for what his generous Heart might design. For I am well...
Page 38 - The chief edifice of this city-like town is crowded on the seabanks, and wharfed out with great labour and cost ; the buildings beautiful and large, some fairly set forth with brick tile, stone and slate, and orderly placed with semely streets, whose continual enlargement presageth some sumptuous city.
Page 48 - Two views of him particularly impressed me. The first was the unity, the harmony of his character. He had no jarring elements. His whole nature had been blended and melted into one strong, serene love. His mission was to preach peace, and he preached it not on set occasions, or by separate efforts, but in his whole life. It breathed in his tones.
Page 38 - ... constant watch to see the approach of foreign dangers, being furnished with a beacon and loud babbling guns, to give notice by their redoubled echo to nil the sister towns.
Page 38 - ... some sumptuous city. . . . But now behold the admirable acts of Christ; at this His people's landing the hideous thickets in this place were such that wolves and bears nursed up their young from the eyes of all beholders, in those very places where the streets are full of girls and boys sporting up and down, with a continuous concourse of people.
Page 43 - ... great as it was, his power to do good. Honest industry must mourn, for which the exercise of his bounty found an almost constant employment : And they that know...
Page 44 - It was to him the highest enjoyment of riches, to relieve the wants of the needy, from which he was himself exempted, to see mankind rejoicing in the fruits of his bounty, and to feel that divine satisfaction, which results from communicating happiness to others. His acts of charity were so secret and unbounded, that none but they who were the objects of it, can compute the sums which he annually distributed among them.
