    Excerpt from Sermon Commemorative of the Life, Character, and Services of the Hon. Elisha Whittlesey, of Canfield, Ohio: Delivered in the First Presbyterian Church, Washington, D. C., On Sunday Evening, January 10, 1864

    Ps. Exu, 6. The righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. Prov. X, 7. The memory of the just is blessed.

    Could the truth of these words penetrate every heart, and fashion the characters of men, the world would contain a noble race. Sometimes a signal example rises from among the multi tudes, to give us a practical proof of its possiblity. The men who, from time to time, thus appear upon the field of observation, deserve to be marked, as astronomers watch the coming and going of the stars for the perfection of their celestial science. A star is great in its physical aspects only; but how much greater is a human soul, full of the spirit and the light of God, emerging upon the stage of action, traveling upon its course through the cycle of time, and finally ascending in its august and eternal motion into some higher and grander orbit of the life that is immortal.

    Such a man was elisha whittlesey. His memory is blessed, and his name will be held in everlasting remembrance, for he was a just and righteous man; he was just such a man as we may conceive might be the fruit of a state of society bordering on the age, if not existing in the heart of the age, of the mil lenium itself. God gives us men like him, not for the mere pur pose of idle eulogy, but to hold them up before us as illustrations of his own grace, and as examples for our imitation. And who that knew him would not say, Let me die the death of the right eous, and let my last end be like his. The biography of the good is valuable for two reasons: human nature contemplates it with grateful pleasure, as exhibiting its own capability - and there is ever a stimulus in the voice which speaks from it to those who come after Go thou and do likewise.
