Memoir of the REV. Ebenezer Hill: Pastor of the Congregational Church, in Mason, N. H., from November, 1790, to May, 1854; With Some of His Sermons, and His Discourse on the History of the Town (Classic Reprint) by John B Hill (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Memoir of the Rev. Ebenezer Hill: Pastor of the Congregational Church, in Mason, N. H., From November, 1790, to May, 1854; With Some of His Sermons, and His Discourse on the History of the Town To write the biography of a parent, is a delicate task. It has t been undertaken in the present instance, without a full appreciation of the difficulties in its accomplishment. Neither the feelings of the writer, r the proprieties of the occasion, would permit any other tone than that of eulogy. My endeavor has been in this sketch, to exhibit fairly, the prominent traits of the character and incidents of the life of my father, especially in their effects upon the church and people of his charge; and in doing so, I am t conscious that I have stepped beyond the line of propriety, either in the exhibition of commendable traits, or in the concealment or suppression of faults or imperfections. For the main body of this sketch, I am indebted to my brother, the Rev. T. Hill, of Saint Louis, Mo. The discourse upon leaving the Old Meeting House, is printed from a manuscript transcribed from the original, soon after it was delivered. The other discourses, are reprints of the first edition, with change, but the correction of manifest errors. The portrait accompanying this volume, is engraved from a painting made at the age of about seventy years. The engraved page of a sermon, is a facsimile of the sermon preached at the dedication of the meeting house, in 1795.
