Hnvlng returned homo with my family
last night, I tako till early opportunity ol
making n fow statements of facts In my
easo. Especially do 1 deem it duo to nty
self nftor tho communication In your paper
of yesterday. I havo reason to boliove
that letter was not written by an actual
resident of Argyle, as In that region tho
peoplo nre somewhat acquainted with my
history. I propose tohov that this letter
Is tv tissue of glaring mi"tatemenis und
malignant falsehoods. I shall notice these
in tho ordor In which they appear. The
veracious writer says of mo:
"Ho lias never been given tho title of
D.D., und doe not claim tho same." Hero
are, first, ignorance, and second, n bad spirit
manifest; howover unworthy, Center
College conferred this title upon mo this
Again ho writes: "Ho received his

tutelage of his reverend father-in-law and

:ourso nt Canonsburg, Pa. I wa licensed
to preach by the Presbytory of Argyle,
N. V., In tho same community in which I
Again: "When installed in his first
cbnrgo ho wns compelled to steady him
self bv holding on to tho railing nf the
I was first installed in Hebron, Wash
ington county, New York. There Is no
nltar in this church nnd never has been,
and no railing in it anywhere. I appeal
to tho great congregation then prcont and
to tho Presbytcrv of Argvle that this
clearly implied charge of driinkcncss
never wns rumored, and Is wickedly false.
The writer nys tlio "I rov committee '
who came to hear mo did not come "un
heralded," and that 1 did not know who or
what they were until sovcral dnvs after-
Tho corrospondent says tlii was at somo
"evening service.'' During nil mv stav
there, there never wns an evening service
in that church.
Again lie charges: "Ho whispered to
ono of his irreverent hearers, 'that ho
hoped tho d d fool- wero now satisfied. ' '
Tlii is a falsehood so bald thnt its very
nbsurdity destroy it. It is a malicious
invention of the writer.
Again it is said : "At Troy, Mr. It.
managed to suitain himself as n rcrmon
izer and preacher for a year or two. ' 1
preached in Troy four years and a half.
Again: "Ho was sent or pormittcd to
go South as chaplnlir" I novor was a
Thu correspondent assures .vour readers
that "ho wns compelled to leave Ills con
gregation.' This is false.
Again "After this our clergyman float
ed around loose n year or two," c. 1
went from Troy direct to my brother's at
Salem, N. Y., to recruit my broken health,
when 1 received an invitation from Sand
wich, 111., nnd iinincdintoly accepted it and
Again "Wo bear of him supplyini: a
pulpit in Sandwich for a year." 1 was
unanimously called, installed pnstor, and
preached there two year.
Ho had "pressing calls from St. I.ouis."
Ho loft Springfield "in disgrace." False.
Thoro aro othor falsehoods about my
rhort stay recently in the East. Hero nfo
two wrapped up in this; statement "Upon
tho facts appearing in tho papers tho poor
man left for parts unknown." Tho "tacts "
horn spoken of did not appear in tho
papers referred to the local papers thore,
until aftor I had left to my knowledge.
Tho first and only intimation I had of
their publication while in tho East was by
letter from Louisville. I received tho
Jotters Tuesday, about noon, nnd left
Wednesday morning. I did not leavofor
"parts unknown" as your correspondent
vainly supposes, but direct for Cincinnati,
telographing to my elders while on tl.o
way to meet mo there.
Again ho says: "My sisters" tliero had
their joy "turned into mourning." I havo
no sisters there.
These reckless and malicious assertions
find thoir object and thoir culmination In
tho thoory given of the "vailed woman."
It is all u wrotchod fabrication. Tho wo
man to whom allusion hero is probably
mado I hnvo not seen for fifteen years, and
havoonlv heard of but onco in all that
time, and that years ago. Tho conjecture
about "unrequited love" is cruel and ma
lignant. I love my wife, who has over
been so supa'singly true and faithful, and
that lovo is requited. So much for tho
facts given by your Argyle (?) correspon
dent. Hero permit mo to mako a fow
statements that may serve to meet tho
abominable calumnies charged by this cor
respondent nnd otliors upon my reputa
tion, habits and character.
To pursuo these recklos falsehoods in
detail wyild bo impossible. The publio
may estimate their probability in tho light
of the following statements :
I was first unanimously called to a
church in Hebron, a church lying contigu
ous to tti o one in which l was born und
reared a church in which tho habits of
my boyhood nnd studont life woro woll
known. During my pnstorato thoro of
less than two years tho congregation
nearlv doubled, while soventy-llvo wero
lidded to tho church, u far Inrger number
than was over before addod during tho
stuuo period. When I left it wns with
tho dcop and universal regret of tho peo
pie, who woro warmly attached to mo,
(iolng thonco direct to Troy, niter over
four yoars of sovoro work, my health
being seriously brokou, 1 Utercd my
resignation. At tho largost meeting of
tho congrcgntion it hod over hold, tho peo
plu unanimously refused to accodo to my
requost, and with equal unanimity ollereil
mo a furlough of six mouths, with a con
tinuiiuco of my salaiy. Persisting in my
request, thoy at last reluctantly granted It,
ami nut only paid mo in full fur tho last
four months I was unablo to preach, but
they genorou.ly gavo mo over 1,1100 In
Ueetlng for about six months, I went to
Sandwich, lll,whero 1 labored two years.
Then I left them, accepting u utittnfiuous
call to a largo church at Springfield, III.
lint thu peoplo of Sandwich repentedly
invited mo back to lecture. I was rcquos
ted to huln them in the noloction ol a pas

pastor was selected ; wos Invited and did

I was in .Springfield in a church of
nearly 100 mempers for over four yoars.
During my pastorate thero tho people
built ono of tho handsomest nnd most com
plete church edifices in tho West, nt a cost
of nbout $100,000. When I loft them to
como to this city n yenr ngo tliero was tho
most profound and universal fooling of re
gret nnd iorrovv. They regarded my
leaving as n loss nnd n calamity.
Thoso nro statements of such n nature
that they can easily bo refuted If untrue.

land to furnish n refutation of n single ono

Bwor to tho wild and reckless assaults
made upon inn by tho malicious, nnd those
under tho swny of still meaner motives.
In closing, s Hirer mo. to mako n few
statements respecting the terrible calami
ty that has so recently befallen me. Tho
lady with whom my nnmo has been so
unforliinntcly associated has always occu
pied tho very highest social position. 1
went to moet hor nt her urgent nnd re
peated solicitations. I wont from motives
ofpuro kindness nnd sympathy. In tho
wholo sad a flair, I was conscious of no
criminal intent, no criminal net. I can
prove boyond all envil hor oxaet Indentity,
but I never shall be guilty of such dis
honor, unless driven to tho point wlicro
honor demands its revelation, lly somo
drug or potion I was suddenly brought
under a baleful and potent influenco that

judgment, lending mo Into such insane
acts, and into sucli certain and frightful
exposures. Out of tho profound and aw
ful gloom of these fatal hours, memory
can evoko but n fow detached nnd Insig
nificant incidents. I shall not gratify a
greedy tasto for scandal by detailing them.
Wlien on my return homo that mciuor-
ablo Friday night awakening from my i
delirium, I begun first to rellect nu what
had occurred. It nil seemed a a wild and
unnatural dream; I did not realize the
enormity of my exposure until startled by
tho revelations of n reporter tho next
Monday morning. 1 was filled with such
suddcnnnd iinuttcrcd dismny that my
courngo and manhood forsook me, nnd I
denied the truth. It was weak was cow
ardly was sinful, and for it I havo suf
fered tho humiliation and tho anguish of
the most bitter self-accusation. I confc
it that at the coming of that sudden
peril so much more feat ful than death I
was appalled nnd turned coward to the
I left Louisvlllo that night in fulfillment
of an engagomont mndo n week previous
to meet my wifo in Cincinnati, on Tues
day morning, at the early train from
Aenta. Mr. Davidson, one ol tho ciders,
was to telegraph mo if it was necessary
for me to return. I met my wifo in Cin
cinnati, and wo dined at the Murnett

dispatch, and wo left together on tho cars,
sho stopping nt Acnin, nnd J proceeding

hope thnt this fearful nll'alr might not be

under such agony of terror and humili

minister outside their own particular de
nomination since the organization of the
