The Southern preacher was not received with great warmth,

for the mighty contention was too close with its significance and results, and its reminiscences were too bitter and too sorrowful.

“With such power” did Dr. Hoge preach, however, that, ‘when one year later the building was dedicated, the text of his appealing discourse was chosen to be inscribed on the wall,’ just over the pulpit, and it remains there, a memorial to him, to this day.

A Great Man in Israel has been taken!

The grateful incense of his memory remains!

The world is better that he lived!
