TO

JOSEPH SAMPSON, Esq.,

OF NEW YORK.

MY DEAR FRIEND:

WHEN resigning my pastorship, five years ago, you will remember that you put it before me to consider myself engaged now in a “Ministry at Large;” serving in it, by the pen, or by whatever method, according to the ability left me, the cause we both have made our own. In this modified ministry, I have had the sense of a worthy and sacred charge upon me still as before, and in it, as I have occupied, I seem also to have prolonged, my life. This, with another volume, on The Vicarious Sacrifice, which is ready in due time to follow, are the principal fruit of my broken industry. Without consent obtained, I venture to connect them with your name, as the spontaneous tribute of my true respect and strong personal friendship.

HORACE BUSHNELL.

Hartford, June 10, 1864.
