3 ANONYMOUS. Review of Dr. Dana's Remonstrance Respecting Andover Theological Sem
19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON-CROCKER & BREWSTER 
ANONYMOUS. A Review of Dr. Dana's Remonstrance Respecting Andover Theological Seminary. By a Layman. Boston: Press of Crocker and Brewster, 47, Washington-street. 1853. Octavo. Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched, light to medium foxing. Collation: 1-54. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-40pp. The pamphlet was written in response to one written by Daniel Dana in 1849: "A Remonstrance Addressed to the Trustees of Phillips Academy, on the state of the Theological Seminary under their care." It concerns primarily the chair of Christian Theology held by Edwards Amasa Park and whether doctrinally and instructionally it met the conditions of the founders set down in the constitution of the institution. Dana decried the fact that Andover Seminary candidates for a license to preach often "failed in some essential points; particularly that of native depravity."(p.6). The author asserts that because neither the seminary nor the ministers have followed up on Dana's concerns, it is left to the laymen and hence his pamphlet. The anonymous author sides with Dana in considering Dr. Parks views as inconsistent with the constitution of Andover. An appendix (pp.33-40) includes: Note A: The Covenant with Adam, and Original Sin; Note B: Atonement; Note C: Regeneration; Note D: Human Ability. These notes treat specifically on Dr. Park's views on the delineated subjects.

George Burgess (1809-1866) Episcopal bishop. Raised in the Congregational church, study led him to the Episcopal Church. After several years studying theology under the guidance of his rector he spent 3 years attending lectures at the Universities of Berlin, Bonn, and Gottingen. On his return he was ordained deacon and then advanced to the priesthood Nov. 2, 1834. He was elected the first bishop of Maine in 1847. "His diocese was weak, but by his steadfast devotion and saintly life, by his unwearying energy and convincing preaching, he had the satisfaction of seeing it develop and increase in influence under his guidance. Bishop Burgess possessed a well-informed mind, and the ability to give clear expression to his thoughts. As a result he wrote much..."--Dict. Amer. Biography III:276.

In this pamphlet Burgess gave advice to seminarians: "You have been educated to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ to men as men, to wise and foolish, to one and all. Cease not, then, to be students, but strive more and more to be men, with all the sympathies, the interests, the enterprize, of living, feeling, stirring men; shaking off all stiffness of the school, all habits of abstraction, all excessive refinement, all the vanity of superior knowledge, and in the love of Christ, holding yourselves as ready, with all manliness, for any post or toil, as, under far lower motives, is the soldier, the warrior, the physician, the pioneer settler, or the hard-handed labour."

Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-32 to the editors, [33]-48pp postscript. Amer. Imprints 40569. Moses Stuart (1780-1852) American Hebraist & Biblical scholar, professor of sacred literature in Andover Theological Seminary 1810-1848. "To America he brought the knowledge of what was being done for Biblical scholarship in Germany, and thus founded in America the scientific study of Biblical archeology and linguistics. For his services in this department he has been called `the father of American Biblical literature.'"--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl., XI:116. The American Education Society was founded to help train ministers for America's new settlements. The reviewer criticizes the Society for requiring recipients of their aid to provide detailed accounting of their need, of the Society loaning the money instead of just granting it, that applications for aid must be made first through the Branch societies, questions over whether voting members of the Society are eligible for office in the Society thereby giving them power to perpetuate their own office. Stuart then lists fears that the reviewer has: fear of immense power that the Society will eventually gain, both financially and ecclesiastically with the Presbyterian Church. Finally, Stuart takes to task the reviewer for bringing up these objections in public: "I frankly confess, that I have a deep feeling on this subject... Shall the tocsin of alarm be sounded through the United States; and all the enemies of religion be set in motion, and have their mouths filled with matter of accusation against the American Education Society?... If the Review had serious objections, why not make them
