1831-05-25, Withington, Sermon preached at the annual election
Sermon preached at the annual election on May 25, 1831 before his Excellency Levi Lincoln, Governor, his honor Thomas L. Winthrop, Lieutenant
Governor, the honorable Council and the Legislature of Massachusetts by Leonard Withington. Boston : Dutton & Wentworth, printers to the State, 1831. On
May 26, 1831, a Senate Committee got a copy of the address to reprint and distribute. Reverend Withington decided to speak in defense of the clergy for
forty-five pages. He regarded the political world as a manifestation of the laws of God and man; government being in the business of restraining
human passions. He was concerned that the clergy were being discarded; the clergy seemed to be loved or hated--there was no happy medium. There were
many perils to be endured to bring religion to such a large country, especially when the clergy were so poorly paid. There was much religious
disputation, but it was the same in politics. Please don't forget the good the clergy has done in the world. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title
originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
