Abstract: “A 39-acre waterfront brownfield on the west branch of Stamford Harbor in downtown Stamford, Connecticut Harbor has become the largest redevelopment site on the Long Island Sound. Formerly home to a gas-fired generating plant and more recently, a fuel tank farm, the site is slated to be home to a $200 million mixed-use development, Admirals Wharf, which is expected to include a waterfront park stretching 4,000 linear feet, 500 housing units, 250,000 square feet of office space, a 190-room conference center/hotel, and a terminal for a high-speed ferry.

’The redevelopment of this site will transform a once-blighted area into a place where people can live, work, and play,’ says Arthur Collins, senior principal of Greenwich, Connecticut-based Collin Enterprises, which acquired the site from Northeast Utilities.”   Stacey Eckstein, p. 35.

Author was pastor of the First Congregational Church, Stamford, Connecticut and delivered this address on June 8, 1856. In it he comments on the disturbing incidents in “bleeding” Kansas between pro and anti slavery forces and the physical attack in the U. S. Senate on Charles Sumner, Senator from Massachusetts. It was published at the request of several local citizens, whose letter to Rev. Elliot is printed on p. (3).

Abstract: “The thoughts thus far expressed are imperatively suggested and pungently enforced by two startling events with which your minds are all doubtless filled. There is a territory under our care, beautiful in its surface, luxuriant in its productiveness, healthful in its climate. It was recently thrown open for occupancy, and many hardy, honest families, invited by the promise of rich harvests and thrifty homes, gathered there. By every guarantee which human legislation could afford, by every right which previous concessions, compromises and pledges could give, by every natural and divine right, it was committed only to freedom. In good faith our citizens removed to it; purposing to establish the customs, laws, religion, education and household life of New England, and to transmit them to their posterity. Soon others of different sentiments and different habits joined them, bringing with them that institution, which, like the deadly upas, was stretching on every side its branches, and dropping its seeds to stealthily take root and form new shades to blight further and ever further this garden of the earth.                               …………………………………………………             My hearers, I care not for the detail of these events. It matters nothing whether rumors of individual bloodshed on either side are true or false – let them be contradicted and disproved an hundred times; there is the outstanding, out crying fact on which the sun shines scorchingly, and which no denials can blot out. There is civil war, there are beleaguered villages, there is blood, and “He that is higher than the highest regardeth it.’                                                       ……………………………………………………………………       In the midst of all this, and as another phase of it, comes that outrage in the Senate Chamber, news of which have caused the ears of millions to tingle. It is not merely its brutality nor its dastardly character as between man and man, which gives importance to that act. No words are too strong to express its shamefulness in these respects, yet that is of minor account. Nor is it chiefly that free speech was assailed. This, indeed, were enough to evoke a burst of indignation from every honorable breast. I cannot justify the language which was the immediate occasion of the scene, though I fully accord with the sentiments, which it was designed to express. As an instance of personal invective, I have deemed it unnecessary, undignified, and wrong, sorely as it may have been provoked. It is, however, but a single specimen of that disposition to vituperation so lamentably prevalent the Church as well as State, in the religious and secular press, in ecclesiastical assemblies, sometimes, alas! in the pulpit, often on the platform and at the bar. It sadly marks and mars our times, and is to be earnestly deprecated. I take the opportunity to utter a protest against all such personalities from whatever source and in whatever place. But while conceding this, I would not for an instant be supposed to intimate that it palliates that infamous assault – never. No words, however galling, can excuse what in heart was murder, and except for an interposing Providence, would have been so in very deed. …………. .”     H. B. (Henry B.) Elliot, pp, 22-24, 25-26.

Abstract: “CIRCULAR.

Whereas the Right Rev. Abraham Jarvis, Bishop of Connecticut, has issued a Circular Letter, forbidding the Rev. Ammi Rogers to perform divine service in this diocese, and forbidding the clergy and laity to give countenance to him as a minister,

Now, therefore, we the subscribers, do hereby enter our solemn protest against the unrighteous conduct of said bishop.

1st, Because the said Rogers has had no complaint brought against him, nor has he been allowed to know what the bishop had against him, or to answer for himself.

2d, Because the facts stated in said letter do not appear to be true.

3d, Because the conduct of the bishop is contrary to the express word of God, contrary to the canons of the church, contrary to reason and the universal practice of all civilized nations; and is a very violent infraction upon all civil compact.

And we hereby request the Wardens of every parish of the Episcopal Church in this state * to sign their protest against said letter, which is nothing less than an unchristian-like attack upon one of the most active and useful clergymen of our excellent church. * Those who will please to interest themselves in our behalf, are desired to forward their communications by the Mail, to the Clerk of St. John’s Church, Stamford.

[This is followed by the names of 91 members of St. John’s Episcopal Church]

I hereby certify, that the above signers do all belong to the Episcopal Society, as on record, in Stamford.
 Attest. ISAAC HOLLY, Jun. Society Clerk.

                                                                                [printers’ ornament]

This is to certify, all whom it may concern, that the Episcopal Society in Stamford has not by any means been so united or so flourishing under any minister, since the death of the late reverend and venerable Mr. Dibble, as it is at present with the Rev. Mr. Rogers – and under these circumstances we appeal to the public whether it is not ungenerous and cruel, for any body or body of men to attempt to disturb our peace, or in any way to deprive us of the privileges of the other churches in this state, especially as neither our minister or we have done any thing to subject us to just reproach.

Location: Ct, CtS, CtSHi, CtY, 
Abstract: “For fifty years, from its founding in 1886 to his retirement in 1946, Sam was pastor at the non-denominational Union Memorial Church in Glenbrook, Connecticut. The church population grew from twenty-five charter members to 650 members, largely a result of the pastor’s genuine personality.

As an editor of The Stamford Advocate wrote on March 24, 1965, “Dr. Evers was a kindly man, never ruffled, always sympathetic to the problems of others. … Glenbrook became a cool, lovely, civilized place where neighbors cooperated with each other in true brotherhood.”

The writings, addresses, sermons, and prayers in this collection reflect Sam’s love of life and of Christ Jesus.

Timothy B. Evers, Sam’s grandson, provides a biographical portrait of the pastor in the Preface and editorial comments at the beginning of each of the four sections.”   Statement on reverse cover. (Copyright 1993 by Timothy B. Evers. Reproduced with permission.)

Abstract: “The Rev. Mr. Dibblee, the Society’s Missionary at Stamford in Connecticut, in his Letters dated Oct. 28, 1765, Mar. 25, and Oct. 7, 1766, expresses his Satisfaction in the religious Behaviour of his People, which is a great Encouragement to him in the Discharge of the Duty of his extensive Mission. Sunday Aug. 25, 1765, he attended divine Service in the new Church in the upper District of Salem, and preached to a numerous Congregation, had upwards of 30 Communicants, and baptized 13 Children. The like he did in August, 1766, when he had about the same Number of Communicants, and baptized 15 Children. He has occasionally performed divine Service in this Place for 15 or 16 Years, in pure Compassion to the destitute Circumstances of this People, and the People of the adjacent Places, who stand in great Need of proper Instruction. At the Request of Mr. St. George Talbot, he preached at the Opening of a new Church at Danbury, 30 Miles distant, which, through Mr. Talbot’s Assistance, is covered and inclosed, and has a handsome Steeple. A good Congregation gave devout Attendance, among whom were many Dissenters. The next Day he preached in the private House of a sober zealous Dissenter, five Miles from Danbury, where a greater Number than was expected attended the Service, and behaved devoutly. Some time after he preached in the Church of North Castle to a good Congregation, and baptized several Children. He has lately had an Accession of sundry Heads of Families to his Parish, whose Christian Deportment, he doubts not, will do Honour to their Profession. In the Year and half preceeding the Date of his last Letter, he baptised 119 Children
