Hubbel Loomis (1775-1872), Congregational and then Baptist clergyman; married Jerusha Burt of Longmeadow, Mass. "He was licensed as a Congregationalist minister in 1801. His first pastorate was in Willington, Conn., where he continued twenty-four years, uniting with his pastoral duties the work of teacher, one of his pupils being Jared Sparks, afterwards so eminent as president of Harvard College... In later years of this pastorate, as a result of earnest study of the scriptures with reference to questions of denominational difference, he became a Baptist, and united with the Baptist church of Willington... In 1829 Mr. Loomis removed to Illinois... settled in Upper Alton, and then founded the seminary which in 1835 became incorporated as Shurtleff College... He was remarkable for conscientiousness; an ardent advocate of human rights, and a warm friend of moral reforms..."--Cathcart: Baptist Ency., p.715. In the first letter, the author argues that while immersion is a proper form of baptism, sprinkling & pouring are also permitted. In the second letter, while supporting believers baptism of adults he also accept infant baptism. In the third letter he argues against closed communion.
