resided the Inst three years previous to rr.y enter ing '.ho ministry, and where I have a sister still living, Saturday, the 29th clay of June last. As would bo natural, we were both anxious to attend meeting the next day, with rr.y sister in our for incr and her present place of worship. White lliver Village, and hear our former minister, the Rev. Professor Hudduck, preach. On reaching the house, however, I found the congregation principally assembled, but no minister.. Soon nf tcr I had 'taken ray seat, several members of the Church cameand urged, me to preach, suggesting, ns I believe, that Profs. Ilndduck had prol-nhly exchanged with you, and something had detained you. 1 declined, and alter waiting some minuio, longer, you came in, and went into the pulpit. Soon after, one of the gentlemen, that had previ ously urged me to preach, went up and conversed yvith yon. You then came down and asked me to preach. I declined absolutely for the forenoon, and left it uncertain for the afternoon. I did, however, preach in the afternoon, without more being said to mo. At the close of tho c.en ico there was very little conversation between us as I recollect, further than you .mentioned Mr. as being under discipline in yourChnreh and inquir ed whether I could not cotne, out & help adjust it. But, still, as you mentioned nothing particular in the case, under my circumstances, I did not feel myself called upon at all to turn aside from my journey i or from visiting my friends even, to aid a minister and Church in settling a common case of discipline. Probably, however, if you had told me us much akmt lbs rase as I have learned since, I might have felt it my duly lo have delayed my journey even, and gone and done what J could to have saved that brother and his family to the Church, and I should have done it cheerfully and with confidence of success. And further, you would have been saved a great deal of anxiety and labor, and I do not know, but expense too, of writing and publishing to prevent the ruin prospectively inflicted upon the Churches by my subsequent indiscretions, and want of ministerial courtesy to yourself. But I do not take to myself any blame for not going. And I shall leave it Tor others to judge, after hearing the whole case, whether I ought to give you much credit for inviting trie to preach in another's pulpit, when urged lo it by a member of that church, and especially, whether from the circumstances above detailed merely, 1 was 'leund to understand,' that yon would be glad to have my assistance on the following Sabbath i;i your own pulpit, without any invitation from you, or even a call from you, although you admit that you knew that I was unexpectedly detained by the sickness of my wife. If I had thought so, I might, possibly, have spent the Sabbat li with von. But so far as I roccollect my feelings in relation to the matter, they were as follows : 1. I was somewhat curious to hear my former min ister, Rev. Prof. Iladdtick, and commune with the church of which I am still a member. 2. Before reaching Hartford I had heard of your position in relation to atui-lsavery men, princi ples and measures;' that you had commenced catechising them, preparatory to calling them to an account before the bar of the public. And supposed, of course, you would not wb-h to ask such an anti-slavery man, as myself, to preach for you, and if you did not, I did not wish to crowd myself upon you. 3. The state of my health was such, I did not wish to preach at all, and certainly not more than once on the Sabbath ; nnd as I had already engaged to preach, on the subject of slavery, in your pulpit at 5 o'clock, and as I understood without any objection from you, I had heard you and had not Mr. Hadduck, I went to hear him and commune with my own beloved church, and then went, as soon as I could, calling only-to take tea on the way, to your meeting house, and did not arrive but just in sea eon to commence the services. And I went as an ambassador of Christ lo guilty men. I felt no un kind feeling towards any one. I had no sinister end to answer. I wi.shed, and endeavored to show Christians their duty, from the bible, to the oppressed. With what success I labored, it is for others to determine, and when the services closed, it was so late I had but just time to reach my home for the night, and as you was not there, I failed to see you. But in your preamble you have still another charge against me. " I soon learned that he had been in the village, and had not called upon mc; and besides, that an appointment for him on the following Sabbath, at 5 o'clock, in the house where I preached, was already determined upon, and that his purpose was, to preach a sermon on sla very." Now, sir, with one addition to the last para graph, viz. provided you made no oljection on being consulted, the above is literally true. And yet I deny its truth as you have put it forth or as you would have it understood. Why should you introduce this fact except with the design to im pugn my conduct? ' And has it come to this, that one minister cannot pass through, or call, in a village or town, where another minister resides and not call upon him. without rendering himself liable to a charge ef improper and unmmistenal and criminal conduct, and that too in the public prints ? Shame where is thy blush ! I acknowl edge, that, during the week I was unexpectedly detained in Hartford by the sickness of Mrs. Leav ilt, I did go to your village and did not call upon you. I should like to have done it, but under the circumstances, I have yet to learn that there was guilt on my part, or any want of ministerial courtesy. And I hope, dear sir, that you will learn, that the maxim, " bear and then judge" is a very good one to follow. The circumstances were these; I heard that my father, in the trans action of some business before he left Hartford, had inadvertantly made himself liable, where it was not the intention of cither party 'ie that should be. I went lo rectify.it called at the house of the other party, and he was gone to your village. I went 'hero, and found him, but, as the matter, was not then under his control, I failed of my ob-j jec. uurmg uie process, l lound two young friends, then lately come to your Village, who were members of my former Church. I was glad to sec thrtn, nnd without once thinking I was in the diocese of another minister, and perad venture trespassing upon bis rights, I rpetil an hour, I should think, in faithful religious conversa tion and prayer. I urged them to steadfastness in their Christian course, ond In. J shs piTsumr.ti.m, not only, to tell them that they ought to pray ia their family, but get letters and join your rhuivh. And when I hud got through, tny time was so fur spent, ITelt the necessity of returning to my sister, who was about five miles distant, not dreaming what your fruitful imagination would conjure up out of this simple affair. But again : in the last paragraph of the above quotation you charge me with;; oposing to preach a sermon on slavery in your meeting house, al though it was a secret plot, got up, of which you was ignorant, and irrespective of you. And this charge stands in intimate and close connection with the other, of my aforesaid criminal visit to your village, as though one was merely to per fect and carr; out ihc other. Now, sir, 1st. As to the facts. I did agree with George Udall, Lsq. on a second or third invitation, to preach on the subject of slaver", in your meeting house on the Sabbath, at 5 o'clock, provided you had no oljec tion, on his ?)icntio?ii)ig it. to yon, and not other wise. He afterwards informed ine that he had mentioned it to you or conversed with you about it, and you made no objections. I did not in quire of hiin the particular manner in which he presented it to your mind, nor did I know any thing definite r:bout it till I received his letter, herewith forwarder for publication. I had no anxiety to preach on that subject. But. nfter de clining the first invitation lo preach, I did feel, that possibly, from my knowledge of your people, I might present that subject with less exception to the fastidious, than some others would, who were less acquainted. I may have misjudged pos sibly I did. But I wish you distinctly to under stand that I consider every part nnd parcel of this affair, so far as I am concerned, and I am the only one on trial, to have been perfectly courte ous and gentlemanly, open and ministerial ; and farther, that I have no more hesitation to preach on that subject on the Sabbath, than on any other sin, against which the whole artillery of Gcd's word is o plainly directed. But 2d. As to the principle. And here I am equally frank lo confess, that I do not suppose that any congregational minister has, or desires to have any legal control of the meet ing house in which he preaches, and much less the exclusive control of it, so that when it is occu pied contrary lo his wishes, he feels himself in sulted, unless, indeed, sir, you may be an excep tion. Nor do I suppose there are many, if any, ministers of the Lord Jesus Christ, who pretend to have the exclusive control of all the minds in their respective parishes, so as to settle beforehand what and who, when and where, they shall hear, or make a hidious howling about it. But should there be any so silly, or conceited, I pity them, for: I am satisfied, from the very nature ol the case, that every manifestation of this spirit would only serve to concentrate upon themselves the contempt of all people of common sense. A minister has his rights as well as other men, &they are to be equally respected with those of oilier men. And there is little fear but what if a minister is qualifi ed for his office, and faithfully discharges the du ties of it, he will have influence and deservedly so, but it will be chiefly that of an intellectual, mural and religious kind. There is nothing, however, in the sacredness and awful responsibil ity of the office itself, that will or ought to shield him from rebuke, if he attempts to encroach upon the rights of others, or arrogates to himself the exclusive control of matters that do not belong to him . As a mere matter of right I suppose you would have had no ground of complaint, if at the request of the owners of the meeting house in Queechce Village, or with their consent, or with the consent of their agents, or a majority of them, I had gone and preached without any reference to you. It is a general principle of law that the ow ners of property have the sole and exclusive con trol of it. As a matter of etiquette, however, I should always wish to have some communication with the clergyman of the place, in person, by letter or friends, nnd such has uniformly been my practice, not even excepting the instance to which you refer and of which you complain. But I de ny that my duty is always and invariably to be settled by the opinion of another individual, even though he be a Clergyman, in relation to effort or no effort in his own parish ; although I should al ways weigh such opinion against my own, well; and uuless it was a clear and palpable case, I should yield to my own judgment. But 1 rec collect nn example in your own count-. 'I was once requested to go to certain towns to endeavor to raise from individuals a sum sufficient to make up an anticipated deficiency in our 'pledge for Domestic. Missions. .1 went called upon the minister of your prtiish and laid my subject be fore him, and he was decided against my making an effort but si inong other reasons I rcccollccl he argued substantially this, that his people were not very able and he nee ded all they could give for his suppcrl, and consequently that what was iiv?n to me, must bo withheld front Liu'. I phi ed him Air bis selfishness, and his ignorance of bi ble wt in li. i;;uu utua; and I believe I did rie.ht. face of bis opinio;), 1 , and got what I asked. One man most cheer fully gave nie-tori dollars. But you 'Fay, you "did not attend upon so un ceremonious an appointment," as though the want of due form in the notification, cr of due courte sy on my pr.t, was tho reason of your absence. But have you ever nti-Mid a lecture address or ser mon or elnvorv ikdwer.vl ia yv;r meeting iiwseor ;;;:i::iiI.'!)i-!;,io.l, or is it for the above rea son, that you have, uniformly staid away ? The letter of Air. Udall slates Hint you Dave rent! some of the notices for such lectures yourself. But, perhaps, they were not put into your band'; genteelly enough, some want of courtesy perhaps the presentation was not accompanied wi.h hat and gloves in hand, and a grnciou.? bow, with a please your Kcverence, read tins. Now, brother, you I. wo been very kind and condescending to cattchi.-? others and even my self of late, and I do not complain. I think good will come cut of it; and lo the anti-slavery cause. But the idea occurs to me, would it not be well for you to pause and catechise yourself a li tic as to one or two points, and then say, is not the rea son vou have assigned for not comiivr to hour my sermon on Slavery a mere pretence? Are yon not in heart oppose- alike to the principles and t!i3 nmsans of the an'.i-sbvjry society ? and was not that the simple reason of your staying away ? Example. Did noiG. Udall, Esq., at the time he mentioned to you that I would preach orr Slavery in your meeting house at 5 o'clock, on the Sab bath ; if you had no objections, invito you to come and hear the sermon, c: did you not then say you would not ? So it seems from his letter, although I did not know it be for?. And was not this inter view before the Sabbath, and before you could lime known, (even in Vour own estimate of them,) b'c.t I should call upon yon before preach ing, (and I should have been glad to,) and inter change all the courtesies of life ? I make these inquiries because I fear you do not understand yourself when you assign such a reason for slay ing aU'ilV- Bcr,idc:i ir I moo -vvroiJLj wu out.l lo have known and told me, of it. But again yon inquire the grounds of my disfranchising you of your ministerial office, in your own parish and meetinghouse? I deny the fact arid the intent. In wdiat I engaged lo.do and attempted to do in your meeting house, I did to gratify many of your own church, nnd as I understood many of the most efficient and worthy members of i', and on the express condition that you made no objec tions on its being first mentioned to you. or you being first consulted. What mere could I have done, or was desired of me, under the circum stances, about five miles from you? And here permit me to ask if I had taken any other course, would it have made any difference with your feelings would you not have fell yourself aggriev ed, and would you not have served up substanti ally the same dish for the public, taste in some dif ferent form, and simply because the preaching at all on that subject is the front of my oflendhg? Or do you want notoriety, and think this a good occasion to secure it? If the last, I have no doubt you will have it, nnd without the envy of your neighbors. So much for " the occasion,." If on re-perusing the rest of your preamble and letter, I think more is necessary to meet your wants, or' inquiries, I shall probably continue to forward till Igetthrongh. In the meantime permit me to subscribe myself voursin behalf of the slave. II. F. LEAVITT. N. B. Perhaps, I ought to add, I did not re ceive your letter till the first of Angtr-t, when 1 returned home from my journey. I should have answered it at once, but you intimated your in'en lion of publishing, and I delayed to get Mr. Udall's answer to my letter, of inquiries, of the Oih -and the August, the last of his I received first- first on the Gth September. Me. Tracy, Will you please to insert the foregoing with the accompanying letters ol George Udall, Esq. in your next Chronicle and forward one to me, and oblige, Yours truly, H. P. L. Hartford, Aug. 23, 1S3!. Friend Leavitt, Dear Sir, Yours, dated Vergcnnes, Aug. 9th, was not received till yesterday P. M. I improve tho first op portunity to answer your letter, and tho questions therein proposed. I know not the purport of tho letter written you by brother Bliss, hut suppose it must partake of the same spirit manifested in other loiters and communications of his on tho subject of slavery, and that ho has censured you for presuming to preach on the subject of slavery when solicited by your friends, the friends of tho poor, degra imJ, suffering slave, because you did not personally go to h.V tho Rev. Sir, and got a permit so to do. But, sir, we have a safer guide we have tho word of God, the Holy Bible, from which to draw our lino of duty, and govern our ac tions, and let us rather fear God than man. But, sir, to the questions. You ns', Did I request you when in Hartford in July last to preach on the subject of subject of slavery at the Congregational meeting house in (lueecheo Village, at S o'clock, on tho Sabbath? Answer: I did. Did you not further state that it would not intcrfero with Mr. Bliss' appointments as ho did not usually have a third service? I did, and answered safuly, as ho made no ap pointment that day, nor has hold a 3d service for innnv months. Did I not at first decline on account of ill health, and a want of familiarity with the subject? You did. Anil afterwards did 1 not cxiircsj my wiilinjfaess to preach upon that 6tilject. v.: soon as any other, and to gratify you and other friends of the cause, as f ir tin I was able, under Ilia circumstances, provided you would consult your minis ter, and ho did not lna'.ie any object ions? And did you not afterwards assure mo that the friends, were anxious that I idinu'd preach noon tho subject, and thai you had seen. your minister on tho subject, and that ho made no objec tion::, and requested you to give the notice r.l the meeting: I did assure you that the friends wore anxious you should preach upon the subject and alto that I had seen our min ister, Mr. Blifs, on the subject. I saw him on Friday pre vionr, to I lie t-abbath, and tu!d him vou would preach on the subject of slavery Ihc unit Pabb.'ttli at o nVlcc'', Rt the ii.eetii!" House he ni ido no objections I aslced him if ho would give the notice of said meeting on the Hiibbath. Ho mud Jvi, you had belter give it. 1 r.s'.ed him if he would not attend the meeting end hear yon preach? Ho said he would not. I will here roniari that llr. Bliss had heretofore refused lo iivo 1 otice of abolition Meetings, and lectures, and Ihoiijjht himself crowded upon when request ed lo do it. That he disregards, the feelings of that portion of his parishioners, who nre abolitionists, among whom are a part of his church about one half ; that he refuees to give nolioc of any anti-slavery meeting-.. But I thought he would willingly give i:o ice of brother l.caviu'd ap pointment to preach a sermon on the sahjeaf of slavery, or I should not hav'j na':cd him. 1 did not intend any irjury orinsr.it when I as1 cd him, but did it in good l'.;iih. sup posing that he would give the notice. I am very sorry, sir, that vou t-hould in any vvav he blam ed for tho course Vfc'j loo at tl-e time above alluded to. I do nol think you intruded upon any man's rights, or that anv one had occasion so lo thin!;. And I a.n sure no one would thin'. to but a mr-.n, who would not only bind men's bodies to s'averv, but would also control others' minds, and bind their actions, and dic'.alo their duties to his own particular nod, whether right or wrong. But, sir, the con stitution of our llcpuhlic guarantees to ns the right of thinVing and acting for ourselves. A higher power has given U3 that right God lias given us that right, and to Him we are accountable, bow we improve it. And, a3 I have before said, let us frur God ralher than man. I have, Denr sir, given true and correct answers to your inqirics, and I see not lio-.v any blame can rest on you. If I have done wrong I should bear it, but my conscience docs not condemn me that I have done wrong in this matter. Our anti-slavery society at Gtuccheo is gradually in creasing in numbers, and although we are greatly opposed by ministers etc. it does not diminish our zeal i:i the righteous cause. Our watclivva:d is onward our prayer is in faith to that d:d who has styled himself a prayer hear ing and a prayer answering God. Wo believe He has al ready in some measure, blessed the eTorts, that z.a ma'. ing for -ho emancipation cf the slave, Our faith ia strength ening, our hopes are increasing th-t soon t'.ie besom of ev ery Christian and Fbiianthropiot will swell with joy at the glad tidings, that unven.al liberty and freedom is proclaim ed to the American slave a d-:y cf jiibilea sold rejoicing lo the su.Tcrina captive. g;:o:wf, r;).n,."
