Hit enunciation is distinct, hia style easy and popular. He is clear rather than eloquent, paternal and nutatory rather that inipassioued ; but at the same time full of deep earnest ness, and impressive by hia obvious sincerity. In hia beliefs he is thoroughly it might also be said, ultraevangelical. He is full of the phrases and ideas' which to many are associated with, the almost forgotten era of childish faith, when they received their religion' inplieity at the maternal knee. To the perplexities of the modern world he only returns the. old answer from! which the perplexities have in great part sprung.
