About this title


Excerpt from My Portfolio: A Collection of Essays

When a man of God, who has been blessed in his work above the average of minister, out-lives his own generation, and the "cloud" of extreme old age has "received him out of our sight," may not filial reverence be pardoned in its desire to tell the living, and specially the youthful, ministry what manner of man he was? Thus would I pay my last earthly tribute to my venerable father, by speaking of him to my younger brethren and my late pupils.

The Rev. Eliakim Phelps, D.D., died on the twenty-ninth day of December, 1880, at the residence of one of his sons in Weehawken, N.J., at the age of ninety years and nine months. He was of English Puritan descent through both father and mother. His was the seventh generation of the family name in this country.
