Excerpt from Progress in Spiritual Knowledge

It is beautiful, when in the peaceful days at the close of a long and useful life the thoughts look back over the way which has been travelled, delighting to see the hand of Providence in events which at the time seemed unimportant and often unfortunate; and when they turn from such memory of the past to anticipation of renewed life in the higher world where the same Divine hand will be more plainly felt and followed with more perfect trust. So it was with the Rev. Chauncey Giles, who passed into the spiritual world at his home in Philadelphia, November 6, 1893.

Mr. Giles's earliest memories took him back to the hills of western Massachusetts, where he was born, in Charlemont, on the banks of the Deerfield River, on the 11th of May, 1813. The region is picturesque, and to one who visits it in summer is most attractive; but the hills are rocky for the plough, and farming, the business of the people, is laborious. The winters, too, are long and cold, and for months the ground is buried in snow and the river is frozen with clear ice, often several feet in thickness.
