Excerpt from Influence of the Ministry at Large in the City of Boston

But just in preportion to the strength of this new agen cy is the importance of thoroughly understanding its character, rightly estimating its claims, checking any tendencies to error it may manifest, and guiding it in the way in which it may work out the glory of God and the good of his children.

Every one, then, interested in the great causes affect ing the religious welfare of society, must earnestly seek right answers to such inquiries as the following, respect ing the particular charity of which I am speaking, namely, the Ministry to the Poor.

Up on whom does it operate? What objects does it propose, and what does it accomplish? Does it give newpower to the established modes in which Christianity is act ing? Does it bring about any peculiar good results lying beyond the sphere of any other active ministry - ln gen eral, does it so benefit the souls of men and so bless the community, that all good citizens should in all ways pos sible cheer and help it on?

There can be no doubt' these points are by many very ill understood. Among those who have examined them, there does not seem to exist perfect uniformity of Opinion. Very many are indifferent to the whole matter.
