"More than a quarter of century has elapsed since the organization of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The men who were prominent in the General Conference of 1844, the extrajudicial legislation of which body resulted in the division of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States into two separate and distinct ecclesiastical organizations, with but few exceptions have passed away... Since the division...a new generation has come upon the scene, who are not familiar with the circumstances that led to the separation. The object of this work is to place in a permanent and enduring form the proceedings of the General Conference of 1844, so far as they bear upon this questions, together with all official documents and papers necessary to a full understanding of the reasons by which the Southern Delegates in that body were governed in the declaration they made that "a continuance of the jurisdiction of that General Conference over the Conferences they represented, was inconsistent with the success of the ministry in the slaveholding States.""--Preface.

4 WITHINGTON Thanksgiving Sermon: Preached Nov. 28, 1850, at Newbury, First Parish.
19TH-AM-MA-NEWBURYPORT-WHIPPLE 
WITHINGTON, LEONARD. Thanksgiving Sermon: Preached Nov. 28, 1850, at Newbury, First Parish. By Leonard Withington, Pastor of the First Church. We never seem to gain a paltry advantage over them--ie. the abolitionists--in debate, without attacking some of those principles, or deriding some of those feelings for which our ancestors have shed their blood.--Burke's Speech in conciliation of America. Newburyport: Charles Whipple. Boston: Perkins & Whipple. 1850. 12mo. Bound in modern marbled paper covers with printed title label on front cover, clean, very good condition. Collation: 12 unsigned leaves. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-24pp. Leonard Withington (1789-1885) Longtime Congregational minister (he lived to age 96) and a graduate of Yale (1814). We offer his sermon against the Fugitive Slave law. "Mr. Burke said in one of his pieces--and he was no radical--that 'bad laws are the worst kind of tyranny.' They are deliberate tyranny; tyranny on system--not a single act, but perpetual tyranny. If the Southern gentlemen did but know it, the Fugitive Slave Bill is the worst thing for their cause that could possibly be invented. Because it keeps the system constantly before our minds; it keeps us in constant irritation, and presents a spectacle which is always reminding us of the deformity of slavery and our participation in it... Now I venture to predict this constant spectacle will do more to alienate the two portions of the country than any thing that could be imagined..."--pp.17-18.
