Excerpt from Memorabilia of George B. Cheever, D.D: Late Pastor of the Church of the Puritans, Union Square, New York, and of His Wife, Elizabeth Wetmore Cheever, in Verse and Prose
The writer of this sketch has frequently heard his discourses referred to by men now far in the vale of years, as having made a powerful impres sion upon their minds. Conscience and Christ were his recurring themes; and his appeals to innate ideas and intuitions, with reasonings from the nature of things, made his hearers solemn and thoughtful over themselves, and given to feel ing after a Saviour, if haply they might find him.
Settled in a city where Unitarianism was pre dominant, he early engaged with enthusiasm in defence of the faith once delivered to the saints, beginning with an address at the religious celebra tion of the Fourth of July in Salem, entitled, Worldly Principles and Maxims as they Appear in the Light of Divine Truth.
It is an interesting psychological fact that this wide-reaching address contains in embryo the thoughts and principles of many subsequent dis courses ou the temperance, anti-slavery, auti popery, Sabbath, social, and political reforms.
