Excerpt from Old and New Unitarian BeliefThe chapters of this book, with the exception of the first and last, were written for my Brooklyn congregation as a series of monthly lecture sermons during the season extending from November, 1893, to May, 1894. The interest which they awakened and the satisfaction which they gave have seemed to justify their publication, and I have thought that a book containing them might mark appropriately the conclusion of my thirtieth year with a people whose generous loyalty to me has been more beau tiful than words can say. While none of the chap ters is as good as I could wish, some of them, I know, are not so good as others, because of slacker health and spirits and more serious interruptions than the common run. But I have gone over them all with care, and tried to better what I could not radically change. In matters of pure fact I have sought to follow the most excellent authorities, verifying every particular of which I had any doubt.
