Item Information

Title:
Edward Hitchcock installation sermon for [Robert] Crawford, 1858 January 13
Description:
A sermon by Edward Hitchcock prepared for the installation of Rev. Mr. [Robert] Crawford at the parish in Deerfield. Hitchcock discusses the state the congregation has been in up to this point, with no specific leader, and emphasizes that while it will be good to have a minister again they should not slack in their own religious efforts. Hitchcock notes that while dying men sometimes find religion upon their deathbed, none renounce it, and points to this as proof of its truth and importance. He therefore encourages the people to do all they can for Christ.
