Excerpt from Origin and History of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America Methodist preachers at this time were permitted to remain only two years in the same place. When the appointments were read at the conference session of 1842, my father learned that Westbrook, Connecticut, was to be his home. Patchogue is almost directly south from Westbrook, across Long Island Sound. My mother, in these days of her first absence from the home in which she was born and had lived until her marriage, looked longingly, at times, from the hill top where the Westbrook parsonage stood, across the sound to Long Island. In this home I was born June 6, 1843. Thirty-nine years later I was called to the pastorate of the Congre gational Church in this beautiful sea shore town. During my ministry of twelve years in the place of my birth, as will appear later on, I was unconsciously, as in previous years, doing work that proved a providential preparation for future secretarial labors in behalf of Church Federation.
