“Praise ! for yet one more name with power endow'd
BY CYRUS YALE,
PASTOR OF THE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH IN NEW-HARTFORD.
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW-YORK, 9. BE IT REMEMBERED, that on the 29th day of April, A. D. 1828, in the fifty-second year of the Independence of the United States of America, John P. Haven, of the said district, has deposited in this office, the title of a book, the right whereof he claims as proprietor, in the words following, to wit:
“Life of Rev. Jeremiah Hallock, late Pastor of the Congregational Church in Canton, Conn.
- 'a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost, and of faith.'
In conformity to the Act of Congress of the United States, entitled, “ An Act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the time therein mentioned ;” and also, to an Act, entitled, “ An Act, supplementary to an Act, entitled an Act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned, and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and etcliing historical and other prints."
FRED. I. BETTS, Clerk of the Southern District of New-Yor?

At the request of the Monthly Meeting of Clergymen, of which Mr. Hallock had for forty years been a member, the Compiler, not without much solicitude, consented to attempt what has resulted in this volume.
The design is not to praise one who was the last to seek honor from men, and whose record is on high ; but partly to erect a monument of the grace of God, which, in connexion with means, forms every character of high moral worth ; and partly to present for imitation, a rare example of piety, fidelity, and success in the Christian Ministry. It has been the aim of the Compiler to furnish a portrait, which, the acquaintance of Mr. Hallock may own and cherish for its resemblance to the original, and from which strangers may derive a measure of that benign influence which personal friends have to a greater extent enjoyed.
The better to accomplish this, he has been chiefly anxious to aid the man of God to stand forth before the eye of the Christian public in all the charm of his own grave, pious, plain, inimitable thoughts, words and actions.
Copious materials for the work have been found in his letters, and especially in his private Journal. This he commenced soon after his conversion, and with little intermission continued, daily or weekly, for about forty-six years, until within a month of his death. Besides this connected view of his Christian course, he wrote, in 1815 and 1821, a short account of his ancestry and early life, in which he abridged his Journal up to the date of his license to preach the Gospel. With this narrative the work begins. In hope that God may own it as a means of promoting the cause of Zion and the salvation of souls, the Compiler now lays down his pen, as he assumed it, with a trembling heart and hand.
