Excerpt from A Sermon: Preached in State Street Church, Portland, November 24, 1859 Rev. Geo. L. Walker, - Dear Sir: - The undersigned, members of State Street Church and Society, having had the pleasure of hearing your sermon on Thanksgiving day, are desirous that those who did not hear it may have the privilege of reading it. We therefore respectfully request a copy of it for publication. Wm. Oxnard, R. Cram, Woodbury Davis, D. W. Clark, Thos. R. Hayes, Geo. Warren, H. J. Libby, Chas. E. Beckett, Warren Sparrow, Israel T. Dana, H. M. Payson, F. Oxnard. Portland, Dec. 1st, 1859. Messrs. W. Oxnard, Woodbury Davis, and Others, Gentlemen: - The sermon, of which you have requested a copy, was written with the design of enforcing certain principles which seem to me of general application, as well as of fundamental importance in our public concerns. Endeavoring to unfold these in the light of truth, the subject was treated in behalf of no special interest of whatever name. Its publication is now assented to, in the hope to subserve the welfare of a truthfulness more local and temporary. Desirous, with you, to honor both the lesser and the greater cause, I submit it without change of a syllable; and am Respectfully yours, Geo. Leon Walker.
