Excerpt from Pulpit Sketches

If any writings may plead exemption from the frost of criticism, they are those which seek a shelter under the altar. When men, whose business is literature and supreme object fame, take up the pen, the critical world have a right to arraign their pretensions, weigh their claims, and sit in solemn judgment upon their productions. Yet let the humble writer, whose design is to reanimate the latent fires of devotion, and turn the earth born thoughts heavenward, be spared the rigors of a tribunal which, unlike the posthumous inquest of Egypt, decides the fate of the living as well as the dead. The minister, who cultivates a sincere desire to benefit his fellow men to the extent of his voice and pen in the brief period of his existence, should never feel the dread of a literary inquisition, damping his zeal, or abating his energy. To a higher tri bunal than that of letters is he amenable; at which it may appear that the boding cry and the raven wing of criticism have induced many to bury in inglorious sloth the talents committed to their improvement.
