John Hall, On Presbyterianism

Cornell U. has the North American Review on line and searchable here. It was probably the leading magazine of intellectuals in the 19th century.

Rev. William R Harshaw mentions Rev. Hall, pastor of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian if I remember correctly. For a taste of what late 19th century Presbyterianism was like, here's a link to his: Why I Am a Presbyterian. And the Rev. Charles A Briggs was involved in a famous trial in NYC when Rev. William was there--here's a link to his discussion of the future of the Presbyterian church.
