beamed with delight on the renewal of those impressions , which were always the dearest to his
heart . * ' The death of such k man could not t > ut be sensibly felt . In every Unitarian church we believe in England , it was noticed with appropriate marks of respect for his

congregation came to the ground and united in that service , which however melancholy , teaches them in their sorrow to indulge the certain hopes of future happiness .
