Excerpt from A Sermon Preached by Jaazaniah Crosby, D.D: March 25, 1860, the Day Which Completed Fifty Years of His Ministry at Charlestown, N. H

Writing and ciphering on a board with chalk and charcoal; walking two miles to school and back; pre paring himself, with only eighteen months' schooling, for Exeter Academy; walking, when prepared, to the academy itself, eighty miles distant, for examination, are among the things which testify to the persevering spirit that surmounted obstacles to which a less reso lute will would have succumbed. With the energy manifested in his preparation for Exeter Academy, we are not surprised to learn, that, two years after his entrance there, he passed the examination for admission into Harvard College, where he spent the usual four years of a college career, graduating in the class of 1804. His college course was character ized by the same perseverance which marked the period of his preparation.

He struggled manfully against the disadvantage of his poverty, and met his college expenses by working between recitations, and particularly by doing writ ing in the office of the clerk of the Court.
