Daniel Dana (1771-1859) pastor in Newburyport, Ma., and longtime member of the Board of Trustees for Phillips Academy & Andover Theological Seminary, answers Moses Stuart's Essay on Sin. "The object of your Essay seems to be, to disprove and explode the doctrine of original sin, or of native depravity; taking these terms in their ordinarily received, and well understood sense."--p.4.
