Flowers left for Henry Beecher
I think you were eloquent in the crusade against slavery. You also did support liberal Protestantism and even evolution. There are fascinating areasof your life - your speeches in England supporting the Union's war effort, and even your attempt at novel writing, like your sister Harriet Beecher Stowe (but your NORWOOD was no UNCLE TOM'S CABIN). To this day your church, PLYMOUTH CHURCH OF THE PILGRIMS, still stands as a useful famous church in Brooklyn Heights. Butyour behavior with Mrs. Tilton and Mrs. Moulton remains a dark question mark on your record. A hung jury is not vindication.
