Letter from Theodore Parker, [West Roxbury, Massachusetts], to Convers Francis, 1842 June 24
Theodore Parker writes to Convers Francis in regards to the welfare of the denomination depends on Francis going to Connecticut. He rejoices in Francis's achievements and lifelong pursuits. He has no fellowship with the other clergy. He says, "If I stay at Spring Street-I must write 104 sermons a year for about 104 people." He is disappointed in the ministers because he believed them to be true to an ideal principle of "Right." He writes that he will continue to preach and lecture in spite of everything.
