Answer- ing the demands of impaired health he rested a year, and from 1838 to 1880 he supplied the pulpit in many churches. He made several valuable contributions to the general and local history of Methodism in Worcester county. He preached the semi- centennial discourse in Ashburnham, and in 1883 at the annual session of the conference in Boston he delivered an address reviewing the progress of the church during the half century since his admission to the ministry.
