JANUARY. 1916



A FAMOUS COLONIAL MITCHELL.

The first American Mitchell of note was the Rev.
Jonathan Mitchell, minister of Cambridge, Mass., the son
of Jonathan Mitchell, who was born in England in 1624.
He was brought to this country in 1635 by his parents, who
sought a refuge from ecclesiastical tyranny in the wilder-
ness. His father first settled at Concord, Mass., after-
wards he lived at Saybrook, Wethersfield, and Stamford,
Conn., and died in 1645. Mr. Mitchell was graduated at
Harvard college in 1647, having made great acquisitions
in knowledge. Under the ministry of Mr. Shepard his
mind was impressed by the truths of religion. While
at college he kept a diary in Latin.

When he began to preach, he was invited to settle at
Hartford, Conn., but he was ordained at Cambridge, Mass.,
as the successor of Mr. Shepard, August 21, 1650. Soon
after his settlement. President Dunster embraced the
principles of antipedbaptism. This was a peculiar trial
to him; but, though he felt it to be his duty to combat the
principles of his former tutor, he did it with such meekness
of wisdom, as not to lose his friendship, though the con-
troversy occasioned his removal from the college. In
1662 he was a member of the synod, which met in Boston
to discuss and settle a question concerning church member-
ship and church discipline, and the result was chiefly writ-
ten by him. The determination of the question relating
to the baptism of the children of those who did not ap-

I



.JJ



proach the Lord's table, and the support thus given to
what is called the half-way covenant, was more owing to
him than to any other man. Considering baptized per-
sons as members of the church and liable to its discipline,
he thought, that their children should be admitted to
baptism.

He died July 9, 1668, aged 42. His wife was Margaret,
daughter of Mr. Shepard. his predecessor. His children
were John; Nathaniel; Samuel, a graduate of 1681; and
Jonathan, a graduate of 1687. Mr. Mitchell was eminent
for piety, wisdom, humility, and love. His vigorous
powers of mind were diligently cultivated; his memory was
very retentive; and he had acquired much learning. He
wrote his sermons with care and yet preached without
notes, speaking with great majesty, and attaining towards
the close of his discourses a fervency, which was most ener-
getic and impressive. His delivery awas inimitable. He
was frequently called to ecclesiastical councils, and, pos-
sessing singular acuteness, prudence, and moderation, he
was well qualified to heal differences.

Attached to the institutions of the founders of New
England, he frequently said, that if it should become a
general opinion, that all persons, orthodox in judgment as
to matters of faith, and not scandalous in life, should be
admitted to partake of the Lord's supper without any ex-
amination concerning the work of saving grace in their
hearts, it would be a real apostacy from former principles,
and a degeneracy from the reformation already attained.
He was faithful and zealous in the discharge of the duties
of the sacred office. Beside his stated labors on the sab-
bath, he preached a monthly lecture upon man's misery
by sin, salvation by Christ, and holy obedience, which was
much attended by persons from the neighboring towns.

He published a letter of counsel to his brother, 1664;
an election sermon, entitled, Nehemiah upon the wall in
2



troublesome times, 1667; a letter concerning the subject
of baptism, 1675; a discourse of the glory to which God
hath called believers by Jesus Christ, printed in London,
and reprinted in Boston, in 1721.
