Second edition. No jacket, a few light spots to boards, ink note on front endpaper. 1857 Hard Cover. vii, 191, [4] pp. Reverend Nehemiah Adams (February 19, 1806 October 6, 1878) was an American clergyman and writer. He was born in Salem, Massachusetts,[1] in 1806 to Nehemiah Adams and Mehitabel Torrey Adams. He graduated from Harvard University in 1826, and from Andover Theological Seminary in 1829. That same year, he was ordained as co-pastor, with Abiel Holmes, of the First Congregational Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[2] In 1832, he married Martha Hooper. In 1834, he became pastor of Union Congregational Church in Boston, Massachusetts. He would remain in that position until his death in 1878.[2] In 1850, he married again, to Sarah Brackett. In 1854, he took a trip to the American South, and wrote a book entitled A South-Side View of Slavery (Boston, 1854). In the book, he lauded slavery as beneficial to the Negroes' religious character.[1][3] This book was one of several polemic works he wrote. It caused a great sensation, and he received much hostile criticism. The book was attacked by abolitionists for its perceived moderation; the abolitionist newspaper The Liberator called it as vile a work as was ever written, in apology and defence of 'the sum of all villanies'.[4] In 1861, Adams wrote a successor volume, The Sable Cloud, a Southern tale with Northern Comments, to answer his attackers, and it was met with a similar response. He also wrote The Cross in the Cell, Scriptural Argument for Endless Punishment, Broadcast, At Eventide,[2] and a Life of John Eliot.[1] He was a member of the American Tract Society and the American Board for Foreign Missions.[2] In 1869, in consequence of his failing health, his people procured an associate pastor and gave Adams a long leave of absence. He made a voyage round the world and described it in Under the Mizzenmast (1871).[2] Adams died in 1878, aged 72. He left nine children.
