Excerpt from Life of Rev. Jeremiah Hallock, Late Pastor of the Congregational Church in Canton, Conn
At the request of the Monthly Meeting of Clergymen, Of which Mr. Hallock had for forty years been a member, the Compiler, not without much solicitude, consented to attempt what has resulted in this volume.
The design is not to praise one who was the last to seek honor from men, and whose record is on high but partly to erect a monument of the grace of God, which, in con nexion with means, forms every character of high moral worth; and partly to present for imitation, a rare example of piety, fidelity, and success in the Christian Ministry. It has been the aim of the Compiler to furnish a portrait, which, the acquaintance of Mr. Hallock may own and cherish for its resemblance to the original, and from which trangers may derive a measure of that benign inﬂuence which personal friends have to a greater extent enjoyed. The better to accomplish this, he has been chieﬂy anxious to aid the man of God to stand forth before the eye of the Christian public in all the charm of his own grave, pious, plain, inimitable thoughts, words and actions.
