Woodward & Lothrop. Tablet to Memory of Dr. Ham lin Unveiled. SERMON BY DR. CHAS. WOOD Services Yesterday in the Church of the Covenant. TRIBUTE BY WM. E. CTJBTIS Deeds and Character of the First Pastor of the Church Set Forth in Appropriate Eulogy. A tablet commemorating the memory of Rev. Dr. Teunis Slingerland Hamlin, first pastor of the Church of the Covenant, who died two years ago. was unveiled at the morning service yesterday. The cere mony took plaee immediately after a ser mon by Rev. Dr. Charles Wood on "The Immortality of Fame," which was in large part a tribute to Dr. Hamlin. The congregation gathered in the rear of the church, facing the tablet, which hangs over the center aisle. "William E. Curtis, representing the board of trustees, delivered a brief but touching addreess; Mrs. Elbert Hamlin, wife of Dr. Hamlin's eldest son, un fastened the two American flags cover ing the tablet, and two sons of Dr. Hamlin drew them aside. The bronze tablet contains a bust of Dr. Hamlin, and is inclosed in an oak frame. The in scription is: "Teunis 8. Hamlin. 1847?1907. First pastor of this church. His life was an example to all men. His death was a tri umph of faith. His memory is a benedic tion." Dr. Wood's Sermon. In the course of his sermon. Dr. Wood, speaking on "The Immortality of Fame," said: "A provincial teacher, with a hand ful of disciples and a multitude of ene mies. upon whose feet a woman pours oil from a flask of extraordinary beauty and value, makes the hazardous and au dacious prediction that this deed shall have a world-wide and undying fame. So stupendous a claim exhibits a sublime confidence. It reveals apparently at the same time a sad lack of perspective. It shows, seemingly, a hopeless blindness to the universal and resistless sway of disintegrating forces, and an entire obliv iousness of historic facts. "Shall a kind act done to a Galilean peasant survive when cities like Babvlon and Nineveh, empires like Assyria "and Egypt have utterly perished?" Alter referring to the desire to prolong one s self into the future. Dr. Wood said: We are to unveil here this morning a tablet of one who, like this woman of Bethany, brought his best to the Master he loved. broke his alabaster box of life joyously, pouring out Its spikenard on the feet of his I>ord. All his powers were put forth for the glory of Christ. Abilities of a High Order. "Teunis 6. Hamlin's abilities were of a high order. 'He was the best preacher I sver heard,' said the president of one of our great educational institutions, who often sat in these seats. He had f^w su perior as an organizer. He left nothing to chance. He was an unwearied worker, ready at sunset after a full day's exhaust ing toll to crowd into the night the work of another day. He was an Indefatigable pastor, writing sympathetic letters and making comforting and Inspiring visits unceasingly. There is hardly a home con nected with this church which in the pact twenty-one years has not known in Some intimate way the tenderness, the sym pathy. the counsel, the admonition, the encouragement of this good man,' said one who was an eye-witness of his labors, a worker with him during all those years. He was tender, trusty and true as a min ister in the church, as a citizen In the commonwealth, as a husband and father In the home, as a man among men. "His ideals were so high that he was always dissatisfied with himself. 'The souls that most look up are the humblest souls.' He appraised the efforts of others more generously than his own, fulfilling the command, 'In honor preferring one another.' 'Your speech,' I once heard hlin say to a friend, 'was far better than mine.' And he thought so, whatever others majtfhave thought. "For nearly twenty-one years he served this church he loved, and though he was doubtless strong enough to have stood by Paul's side as he assures the church at Corinth that 'I will very gladly spend and be spent for you, though the more abundantly I love you the less I be loved"; but he was never called to de scend, like Paul, into the soul-chilling depths of indifference and ingratitude. The heart of the church beat In unison with the heart of the minister. In his last anniversary sermon he said: 'It is a priceless privilege to have been for twenty years the pastor of such a church as this. God has permitted us to live and work together, to be friends, to love each other in the deeper love of our common Lord. It has all been good. It is all precious. I thank my God upon all my remembrance of you.' " ^ In his peroration Dr. Wood said: "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar In the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out forever." Tribute by William E. Curtis. Mr. Curtis' tribute follows, in part: "It has been a little more than two years since a heavenly messenger sum moned Dr. Hamlin to the presence of His Master. In looking back over the twenty one years of his ministry, with that per spective we are able to realize rtiore fully our obligations to him, and to appreciate with greater accuracy the value of his service to this congregation and this com munity. For he was a model citizen, as well as a model pastor. "At the hour of his sudden departure he was in the fullness of his strength, and zeal and usefulness; but few men ever accomplished more within the limits of his life. Certainly no young church was ever more fortunate in having for its first pastor a man of his remarkable business talents, combined with a deep spiritual nature and an unfaltering faith. "When the Rev. Dr. Hepburn of Tokio, dean of the missionary corps in the far east, was asked the most important qual ity for a missionary, he replied, 'Sancti fied common sense,' and Dr. Hamlin had that quality to an unusual degree. "His religion was a real and practical thing; he found his creed and the methods of his ministry in the Sermon on the Mount rather than In the dusty tomes of the theologians, and he had the faculty of inspiring those whom he taught and loved with his own confidence and en thusiasm. "He left the impression of his person ality wherever he appeared?strong, but gentle; tactful, yet determined; resource ful, but prudent; freely lending his own great strength and sympathy to lighten the burdens and the sorrows of others. "Those who knew his voice and the clasp of his hand need nothing to remind them of what he was and what he did, and will hold those traits in lasting and grateful remembrance; but we have placed this tablet here that strangers who enter this sanctuary, and those who come after us to worship here, shall be re minded of him who laid the foundations of the Church of the Covenant and built it up to its present numbers and useful ness. "A skillful hand has traced his likeness upon this bronse and inscribed the tribute of our hearts: "21! klfe^a8 an examP'? to all men; ..5! ? Rth wa? a tr,uraPh of Faith; "His Memory is a benediction." Work and Life of Dr. Hamlin. Dr. Hamlin was born in Glenvllle, N. Y., May 31, 1847. He graduated from Union College in 1887, and his alma mater honored him with the degree of doctor of divinity in 1887. He had fifteen years experience as a pastor before coming to Washington. For thirteen years he was at the head of a church in Troy, N. Y. ? then he went to Cincinnati for two years,' and in 1886 he came to Washington to W. B.
