COIT, THOMAS WINTHROP. Remarks on Mr. Norton's "Statement of Reasons." [9 lines of quotes] Boston: Published by William Peirce, No. 9 Cornhill. 1834. (Printed by William C. Webster, 9 Cornhill, Boston.) Octavo. Disbound pamphlet, light foxing but a bit heavier on the first and last few pages. Pagination: (1) title, (1) printer, -77, (1) blank. Amer. Imprints #23893. T. W. Coit (1803-1885) Episcopal Clergyman, theologian. He attended both Andover Theol. Seminary & Princeton Theol. Seminary, but was led by his studies to withdraw from the Congregational Church and join the Episcopalian. He pastored in Boston, then was called to the presidency of Transylvania University in Lexington Ky.; rector of Trinity Church, New Rochelle, NY; Prof. of church history, in Trinity College, Hartford, Ct.; rector of St. Paul's, Troy, NY; and professor of church history in the Berkeley Divinity School, Middletown, Conn. "In 1834 he began his career as a theologian by measuring himself against no less an antagonist than Andrews Norton; his Remarks on Mr. Norton's "Statement of Reasons" was, however, a belated rejoinder, for Norton;s Statement of Reasons for not Believing the Doctrine of Trinitarians had appeared in 1819, when Coit was still a student in college... He was an able student of the Bible, of liturgics, and of church history, a zealous churchman, and the master of a dignified vigorous English."--Dict. Amer. Biography IV:278.
