An American Unitarian clergyman, son of Nathaniel; born in Boston, Nov. 22, 1822; died there, Nov. 27, 1895. His radical views led to the resignation of his pastorate in the Unitarian Church, Salem, Mass. He preached in Jersey City, 1855-59; then organized the Third Unitarian Church in New York city, where he preached very radical and advanced views until the dissolution of the church in 1879. The remainder of his life was devoted to travel and literary pursuits, his home being in Boston. His works were: "Stories from the Lips of the Teacher"; "Stories from the Old Testament"; "The Religion of Humanity"; "The Cradle of the Christ"; "Memoir of W. H. Channing"; "The Safest Creed"; "Beliefs of the Unbelievers"; "Creed and Conduct"; "The Spirit of the New Faith"; "The Rising and the Setting Faith"; "Lives of Gerrit Smith, George Ripley, Theodore Parker"; "Transcendentalism in New England"; "Recollections and Impressions"; etc.
