To Mr. Hiory U IJowen:
8 l rBCihed latt evening jour Hid
den notlcet breaking ray two contract!,
ono with tho 'Independent' tbo other with
tbo brooklyn 'Union'. With rcferenco to
tbit ict of your I will maku u plain j
taloracnl of fact. It wag during tho
early part of the rebellion, if I recollect
aright, when you flnt intimated to mo that
tbo liev. Henry Ward Heecher had com
mltted ncti of adultery for which, if yon
huuld expoo lilui, ho would bo
driTsn from the pulpit. From
that lime on your reference!
to tb i lubjoct wore frequent and always
acioinpaniod with thu exhibition of dep
eatel injury to your heart. In a letter
which vou addretied to me from Wood
itcck, June 10, 1863, referring to thii ub
lect you ald' "I toraeliini'r feel that I
inuit break silence; that I must no longor
kutl'er at a dumb man, nnd bo mado to
bear a load of grief most unjustly. Ono
word from mo would rnal.n n rebellion
throughout Christendom, I had nlmntt
laid, and you know it. Vou hnvoJuH a
little of tbo evidence from tao great vol
umn in my poisenlon. I ntn not puru
ing a phantom but solemnly brooding
over an awful reality.
"3'ibioqucnt to this letter, and at fre
quent intervals from this till now, you
have repeated tho statement that y"
could, at any momont, expel Henry Vrd
Heocbor from Urooklyn. Vou hive ro
iterated tho same thing, not only to mo,
but to other. Moreover, during the year
Just cloed, your letturt on tho iubieel
were tnrkod with moro fueling than
horetiloro, and wero not unlrequcntly
coupled with your emphatic declaration
that Mr. Heecher ought riot to bu allowed
to occupy tbo pomton of a Chri'tian
toacher and preacher.
"On tbo'JSth of Dccouiler, ISTo, at an
intorvljw at your home, at whlch.Mr. Oli
ver Johnson and I wero present, youepoke
freely and Indignantly against -Mr. needi
er as an uniafo visitor In tbo families ot
his congregation. You alluded by name
to a woman now a widow whoso husband's
death you did not doubt win hustenod by
his knowlodgo that Mr. lioochur had
maintained with hor an impropor inti
macy. Ai If to leave no duubt on tbo
mindi of either Mr, Johtuon or myself,
joa tnfirmod us that Mr. Heecher had
made to you a confession of guilt, and bad
Implored your forgiveness. After Mr.
Johnson rotlrod from this intervlow, you
rotated to m tho caso nf n woman of
whom you laid (asruailyas I can rtcol
lact your words) that Mr Heecher took
Lor In his arnii by forco, threw bcr down
upon the sofa, accomplished upon li or Ills
daviltry, and loft hor. f
Uuring your recital of this talo you
ro filled with angor toward Mr.
Itojclior. You said, with torrtblo omplm
hi, that ho ought not to romain a veu'
longer in tho pulpit You immodiatcly
tuggestod that a demand should bo mado
upon him to quit his sacred ollico. You
volunteered to hour to hint such h demand
in tho form of an open letter which you
would present to him with your own hand,
and you plcdgod youriolf tn euftain thu
demand which this letter should nmkf,
viz: That ho should, for reasons which ho
explicitly know, immediately coaeo from
1,1. minimrv at Plymouth church, and ro-
tire from "Urooklyn. Thu llrrt draft of
thii letter did not contain thu phrao 'for
reasons that ho oxpllcitly know,' and these
words, or words to that efl'ect, wero inror
nraind in ft second at your motion. You
uriod. furthe-moro, that the luttor very
emphatically uould demand, not only
Mr lleecher's abdication of his pulpit, but
the' cossatlon of hU writing for tho 'Uhrls
tian Union' a point on which you woro
overruled. This lotter you presented to
Mr lloechor at Mr. Freelend hou.o

of his Hrgo loid, tho party leader. Ho
