This answer has been long prepared, and would have appeared sooner, had not the delay occurred incidentally after the manuscript had passed into the hand of another. A delayed attack on a critical review of William Hill's attempt at a history of the Presbyterian church in the U.S. and, by extension, an attack on theologian Charles Hodge. The strictures had first appeared in the pages of the Old School Presbyterian journal the Princeton Biblical Repertory; Hill was of course a moderate New School Presbyterian. Small ink stamp ("Box") on the front wrapper. American Imprints 42-4524 (noting five locations).
