Autograph Letter Signed.

Considered one of the greatest preachers of his day, this Episcopal clergyman served as rector of St. George's Church in New York City from 1845 to 1878; it is largely due to his efforts that Sunday Schools are such an integral part of American church life, hence his moniker "The Champion of Sunday Schools." ALS, 1p, 7½" X 9", New York, NY, 1848 April 17. Near fine. Binding traces on left edge. Nice note to an unnamed recipient: "I am gratified -- with the kindness shewed to me by an unknown member of your Board. My sincere wish is for the prosperity of your Society. My frequent prayer is for a blessing upon your churches...." Item #22654
