was eventually established at Bridgewater, but instead of being the first, it was the third.
With this convention, Mr. Brooks' immediate labors ceased.
About this time his name was suggested for the professorship of natural history in the University of the City of New York.
His brilliant work in aid of the educational cause was well known, and that alone should have secured him the appointment, but in addition, he had the endorsement of four such men as Jared Sparks, Edward Everett, Josiah Quincy and John Quincy Adams.
On receiving the appointment, he prepared to close his labors in Hingham, and the pastorate was terminated January 1, 1839, after eighteen years of service.
