Description

This sermon was preached at the beginning of the Civil War by Charles Wadsworth, a minister proclaimed by Emily Dickinson to be "My Shepherd from 'Little Girl'hood'." Dickinson had heard him preach at the Arch Street Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia during a trip to Washington to visit her father, who was a congressman at the time. She and Lavinia (her sister) stayed for two weeks with the Coleman family (cousins) who attended the Arch Street Church where Wadsworth was minister. The Colemans mailed copies of his sermons to Dickinson in the years following.
