This article appeared in the October 1874 number of the Southern Presbyterian Review (25.4) with the following explanatory footnote: "According to previous appointment, this discourse was preached before the Presbytery of South Carolina, in the Presbyterian church at Walhalla, on Friday, the 11th September, 1874. The thanks of the body were voted the preacher, and a copy of the sermon was requested, that it might appear in this Review, and in the Southern Presbyterian, and a thousand copies of it in pamphlet form be printed for the use of its ministers, elders, deacons, and church-members. The Presbytery also resolved that when printed, the sermon should be read in every one of its pulpits, on the first Sunday in November, or as soon thereafter as might be practicable."
