THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH ftiXLADELPHIA, TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1871.
St. Clement's Church.
To tht Editor Tkt Evening TtUgraph.
It Is not my wish to enter Into a controversy
in regard to the difficulties at St. Clement's. I
wrote all that 1 thought necessary in my pre
vious letter, the only point I desired to make
having been to show that the vestry did not ori
ginate the troubles. There are, however, some
observations in the second letter of "A Parishi
oner," published on April 1, that I cannot suffer
to pass without comment, as to remain silent
would appear to prove his remarks and supposi
In the first place, he would Intimate that my
nonx de plume of "Outsider" indicates an as
sumed character, or role, as he adopts that
theatrical word, and that, in fact, I am an
Insider" otherwise, I presume, one of his
famous "Ten Dissenters." I wish I were, but
I am not. Not one of the vestry nor pew
holders of St. Clement's Church had the
slightest knowledge of my letter before it ap
peared In TnB Evening Telegraph, and, to
the best of my belief, not one of them even
now has the least idea who it is that has endea
vored to defend them from their calumniators.
No influence was exerted by any one to have
it written, and it never was designed for an
electioneering document. I am not in the
vestry, and have no connection with it. Can
"A Parishioner" say as much of himself and
Lis own letters?
In the second place, he intimates that the
ground of complaint has been changed from just
remonstrance against Improper doctrines taught
by the clergy of St. Clement's to a mere tirade
against ritualistic ceremonies. This is incorrect.
All allusion to theological points was intention
ally omitted in my letter. I remarked that there
bail been a radical change in the mode of con
ducting the services, and, it is alleged, there
have also been radical changes in some of the
doctrines taught." Being an "Outsider," I had
no personal knowledge of the peculiar teachings
of the reverend gentlemen, out I had many
opportunities of seeiog the extravagances
enacted in the chancel in the presence of the
Again, "Parishioner" objects to the use of the
term "Brotherhood" when applied to the fana
tical gestlemen who control the services. Per
haps he would prefer the proper title of the asso
ciation, of which he is probably .a member,"The
Guild of the Holy Cross."
In the fourth place, he brings up a list of dates
in an effort to show I made an error in stating
that the vestrymen issued their little pamphlet
in consequence of his letter in The Telegraph.
He must have read my communication very
carelessly, as I wrote nothing of the kind. I
observed that the vestry had published the "ex
tracts from the minutes" as the simplest means
to defend their characters from aspersions and
slurs similar to those contained in "Parishion
er's" letter. I assuredly could not, in any case.
have complimented him so highly as to imagine
that his communication could extort an official
defense. The vestry has suffered from these
"slurs" for a very long while ever since the
"Guild" decided upon making an effort to
obtain entire control of St. Clement's Church,
temporally as well as spiritually.
Again, "Parishioner" states that I admit the
pew rental has increased in five years. There
is no allusion whatever to anv term of "five
years" in my letter. I said that in lituo years
the pew rental had not materially increased."
lie says, further, that "Outsider" will not
deny that $15,000 of the church debt has been
Eaid off. I will not deny that some of the debt
as been paid, but I do not know the exact
amount. It may be that $15,000 or it may be
that $20,000 of the debt has been cancelled not
paid; as, by an arrangement long since made
by the much-abused vestry, the principal cre
ditors of the church consented to take fifty
cents on a dollar. Consequently, $7500 may
have been paid in cash; certainly not $15,000.
This is a fair specimen of the misrepresenta
tions employed by the opposing party, for in
this case it is wished to produce the impression
that twice as much money has been contributed
by the nourishing parish as has, in fact, been
Finally, "Parishioner" calls upon all good Epis
copalians to rejoice over the increase in the
number of communicants from one hundred and
twenty to three hundred and fifty. It is possi
ble that his arithmetic may be wrong again, but
it matters not.
This increase is by no means a cause for re
joicing. It is, on the contrary, deeply to be de
plored by every one who has the welfare of the
church at heart, that so many souls have been
led astray by being united to a communion
which, in St. Clement's as well as at St. Alban's
in New York, is disfigured by so much thati i
erroneous. An Outside.
