Sabbath April 23” 1865

The pulpit was supplied to-day by Professor Blair, formerly of the Ohio University,  now Editor of the Parkersburg Gazette — His text was Hosea 9.9. — “They have deeply corrupted themselves as in the days of Gibeah; therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins” — It was an excellent sermon prepared for the occasion in which many startling truths were told — Some of the copperheads called it Lincoln’s funeral sermon — I was glad we had draped the house in black —  it looked very well and as one woman said to me ““it looked real mournful” — We shall leave it up thirty days.
