Speaker or author: Pennington, James W. C.

Newspaper or publication: Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford -- Anti-Slavery Pamphlets

A farewell sermon delivered before the Fifth Congregational Church of Hartford, Connecticut, as the speaker left to devote a two year leave of absence to classical study. The speaker also requested the time so that he could deal with his fugitive status. The sermon itself addressed Paul's journey through Macedonia and seemed a metaphor for the speaker's upcoming absence.
