Excerpt from Memoir of Sylvester Scovel, D. D: Late President of Haver College, and Formerly Domestic Missionary and Missionary Agent in the West The writer of the following brief memoir became acquainted with the subject of it in 1822, at the Theological Seminary at Princeton, N.J. Circumstances contributed to their frequent intercourse, and to an intimacy which continued till they left that institution. They were examined and licensed to preach by the same Presbytery, and at the same meeting; having been classmates during their theological course. Soon after this they occupied different fields of labor, and seldom met for more than twelve years. At the beginning of 1837, they were, by the providence of God brought together again, and their former intimacy was renewed. From that time till his decease, a period of twelve years and a half, they were often in each others society, and enjoyed the pleasure and benefit of mutual counsels and prayers. This circumstance was doubtless the principal reason for the request made to the author by the Society of Religious Inquiry, of Haver College, to prepare a memoir of his life. Several causes have produced unexpected delay in its publication. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
