REVEREND AND DEAR SIR:
At a meeting of the members of your congregation, we have been appointed a committee to convey to you their earnest request that you will favor them, for publication, with a copy of the series of Sermons on "The Friends of Christ," which you have just closed.
We perform the duty assigned to us with great pleasure, and take leave to add to the wishes of the congregation our own, that those who heard the discourses may be indulged with an opportunity to peruse, thoughtfully and repeatedly, what they listened to with so much interest; and that those who did not hear them may be enabled to partake of their seasonable and important instructions. We are, with sentiments of the highest regard and affection,
TO REV. N. ADAMS, D. D.
RUFUS CHOATE, GEORGE ROGERS, A. WILKINSON, GEO. W. THAYER, DAVID PIKE,
BOSTON, May 4, 1852.
TO THE COMMITTEE OF THE ESSEX STREET CONGREGATION,
Dear Sirs: The request in your kind letter has induced me to think that the Sermons referred to, which were prepared in the ordinary course of ministerial labor, may be owned by Him whom they were intended to honor, as a means of further good. I therefore submit them to your disposal. With great respect and affection,
To Messrs. RUFUS CHOATE,
GEO. W. THAYER,
Most truly yours,
