Description

Excerpt from A Sermon, Occasioned by the Death of William Henry Harrison, Late President of the U. States: Delivered in the Cedar St. Presbyterian Church, on Sabbath, April 11th, 1841 "For death - is entered into our Palaces." - Jeremiah 9: 21. The sudden and unexpected death of the Chief Magistrate of these United States, has cast a mantle of gloom over the whole nation. But God hath done it, and it therefore becomes us to bow in meek submission to His righteous will; for the Judge of all the earth cannot but do right. This afflictive dispensation of Divine Providence has come upon us, when we least expected it. God grant that the peculiarity of the means, by which He has chosen to chastise us as a nation, may lead us to deep repentance for our national sins; to amendment of life; and a more explicit acknowledgment of our dependence upon Him for the future. The great political struggle of this nation had just passed over. And the man of the people's choice, respected for his grey hairs, and for what adorns the gentleman, the husband and the father; honored for his heroic valor on the field of battle, and his unwavering republicanism in the day of his country's distress; revered for his stern integrity, and manly adherence to the principles of the constitution of our government, and who had been raised to the highest office in the gift of a free and noble people; having taken the helm of government into his hands, and in an acknowledged dependence upon the God of heaven for wisdom, had entered upon the arduous duty of guiding the affairs of this increasingly great and prosperous nation. Thousands of his fellow-citizens had just listened with profound attention, and joyous hearts, while he marked out before them the pathway of constitutional republicanism in which he purposed to tread, and solemnly avowed the manner in which he intended, through divine aid, to fulfil the high and responsible duties of his office. Expectations were raised high, that under his administration our country would be greatly advanced in her temporal prosperity. Joy was spread throughout the land.
