The First Episcopal Church in New England (Classic Reprint)
Author: F. W. P. Greenwood
Excerpt from A History of King's Chapel in Boston: The First Episcopal Church in New England The substance of the following pages was preached before my Society in a series of eight discourses, in the spring of 1832. In printing these discourses, I have given them the title of Periods, because the name of Sermons seems too formal for such a subject, and disturbs the appearance of historical continuity. I have, however, retained the style of direct address to an audience, in the belief that by so doing I should rather help than hurt or hinder the narrative. I have ventured to publish this History of King's Chapel, because I trusted that it would be interesting to the members of my congregation; because I hoped that it might be interesting to readers in general, as a contribution, though small, to the ecclesiastical history of New-England; and because I was almost sure of the favor of antiquaries, to whom facts are never unimportant or dull.
