George Burgess (1809-1866) Episcopal bishop. Raised in the Congregational church, study led him to the Episcopal Church.

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."

Emmons (1745-1840) "Congregational minister, and theologian, the most entertaining of the teachers of the New England theology, representing the `exercisers' as against the `tasters,' like most of his school came from a Connecticut country township... He had surprising success as a preacher because of the pungent quality of his sermons. Students came to him in greater numbers than to any other man of his time for instruction in theology and the art of preaching. The principle of that art he expressed in the words, `Have something to say; say it.' ...The peculiarity of his theology was that mental life is merely a series of `exercises,' the result of divine action, a theory which would reduce men to puppets, were it not that Emmons imputed to them freedom and moral responsibility. They act of necessity, not from compunction... His publications, which consist entirely of sermons or parts of sermons, were collected in Works of Nathanael Emmons, D.D. (6 vols, 1842, and republished, with additions, in 1861-63)."--Dict. of Amer. Biography, 6:150. We offer Emmons funeral sermon for a Mrs. Farrington, preached on the text of Psalm 17:15 "As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness." "He expected [the psalmist] that as soon as he should be absent from the body, he should be present with the Lord, where he should see him face to face, and be completely blessed in his favour and presence for ever. And if his expectation was just, we may safely conclude, That saints will be perfectly happy in the presence of God in heaven."--p.1

He continued to preach to the people, evidently to their great satisfaction, during that Spring, and in May they invited him to settle with them in the ministry. They offered him, after some negotiation, a salary which began at 60, but was to increase until it should be 80 per year.
