[49] Trumpet and Christian Freeman. The name of the paper was changed to the Universalist in 1864, and Dr. Emerson was sole editor until 1867, when he moved to New York, where he edited the Christian Leader until 1872.

At the same time he was pastor at Huntington. Returning to Boston in April, 1872, he resumed his connection with the Universalist, and was its editor, under its various names of the Universalist, the Christian Leader, and the Universalist Leader, until his death. He was the author of several books, and contributed many articles to the Quarterly. As a speaker he was in great demand at conventions and denominational gatherings of every kind. He had a large acquaintance among the clergy and laity of the Universalist Church, and was esteemed by all as a friend. In recognition of his eminent abilities, St. Lawrence University conferred on him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity in 1871. The denomination met with an irreparable loss when Dr. Emerson passed away, in his seventy-sixth year.—In part from the Universalist Register, 1899.
