1 ANONYMOUS. Review of Dr. Dana's Remonstrance Respecting Andover Theological Sem
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."

He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1792; received license to preach in 1794; was ordained 1796 and became pastor of the church in Washington, Conn. He remained here until 1811 when he accepted the chair of the Bartlet professor of pulpit eloquence in the Theological Seminary at Andover. In 1817 he was appointed Professor of Divinity in Yale College but he declined the appointment. We offer Porter's dedication sermon of the new seminary building in Andover, preached on the text of Psalm 128:1 "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it"--and the necessity of the blessing of God for a successful enterprise.
