Michigan

Macomb County

Pontiac, because of the Indian post there established, was then the principal place outside of Detroit, and thither he bent his steps and there he settled. On a bright summer's day in August, just fifty years ago to-day, this saintly man might have been seen threading the forest between here and Pontiac, guided by an Indian trail, and communing with nature and nature's God. What is his errand? By previous visits the fact had been ascertained that here were to be found a few believing souls desirous of entering into covenant relations as a Christian church, and it is for the purpose of consummating this desire that he is wending his way hither on foot in this August sun. Look into that little log school-house where this small company of believers are assembled. They are but seven in number, the same as the pillars hewn out by Wisdom in building her house—fewer than the first company of disciples, but still the worthy seed from which has grown this now large and prosperous church.
