Autobiography of Nathaniel Bouton, D.D free pdf Excerpt from Autobiography of Nathaniel Bouton, D.D: Former Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Concord, and Late State Historians of New Hampshire- Also, Tributes to His Memory My father, of his own accord, would never have written a line of autobiography to be published either before or after his death. He shrank from disclosures of himself. In his sermons and addresses no reference to his personal history or private feelings and tastes can be found. His family knew about him but little more than they saw for themselves, except, when with his younger children, in moods of playfulness, he would recall some incident of his boyish days for their amusement. He was always reserved upon the subject of his early life. This reticence sprang from no wish to conceal anything in his past- it was all honorable to him, and will bear the light it now receives- but boasting was abhorrent to his nature, and he never sought to pose before others as a model man. He was not in the habit of quoting his own experience as an infallible guide for his children or anybodyelse. He had little faith in the power of mere words, but he believed in the force of good example, and that he set before us continually. His daily life among us was our best lesson. The accompanying "brief narrative," as he called it, was written at the request of his children. As his useful and honorable career neared its close, they were desirous to know more of its beginning. Though prepared exclusively for his descendants, it has been thought proper to make this autobiography public, in the belief that his many friends would be pleased to read it, and that some who did not know him personally might find the record instructive. It inculcates the virtues of an unswerving faith in Providence, of devotion to duty, of the strenuous application of all one's powers and faculties to a definite object in life. My father always deemed himself a child of Providence. He adduces many facts in this Memoir which confirmed him in that opinion In gratitude to the guiding hand of a higher Power which he ever recognized, he dedicated himself to the ministry. He considered his unstinted pastoral labors in Concord only inadequate payment of the great debt he owed to God. Her children now know, as they never knew before, why he lavished his bodily and mental resources on the parish for forty-two years- why, in comparison with the First Congregational Church of Concord, all else was secondary. It was only a partial discharge of the obligation that rested on him. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
