“ [236] all things necessary for salvation.” His ministry gave contentment to his people, and passed away like the seasons, showing bloom, growth, and fruitage, without noise or record.

His printed compositions are few. We have seen his biographical notice of his first wife, Mrs. Jane Colman Turell; and it gives evidence of his just appreciation of a most interesting woman in the family and a pious member of the church. His sketch of his father-in-law, Dr. Colman, is a labored and successful eulogy of every quality in the deceased which could ornament a man or sanctify a preacher. The manuscript sermons which have escaped destruction are chiefly amplifications of texts which pertained to his theme, ending with the accustomed “improvement,” which was a practical application of his doctrine to the hearts and lives of his audience.

Rev. David Osgood, D. D.
