The Journal of Thomas Chalkley: To Which Is Annexed, a Collection of His Works (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Journal of Thomas Chalkley: To Which Is Annexed, a Collection of His Works
He was a lover of unity amongst brethren, and care ful to promote and maintain it, showing the example Of a meek, courteous, and loving deportment, not only to friends, but to all others, with whom he had conversation or dealings so that it may be truly said, that few have lived so universally beloved and respected among us and it was manifested this did not proceed from a desire of being popular, or to be seen of man: for his love and regard to peace did not divert him from the discharge Of his duty in a faithful testimony to those who professed the truth, that they ought to be careful to maintain good works; and he was often concerned zealously to incite and press friends to the exercise of good order and dis cipline established in the wisdom of truth, by admon ishing, warning, and timely treating with such as fell short of their duty therein, and by testifying against those who, after loving and brotherly care and endeavours, could not be brought to the sense and practice of their duty and thereby he sometimes shared the ill-will and resentment of such persons.
The several essays he wrote on religious subjects at sea, are further proofs that his mind was principally en gaged in the great business and concern of religion; and as he continued under the same engagement to the end, we are fully persuaded the words, with which he concluded his last public testimony in the island of Tor tola, may be truly and properly applied to him, that he had fought a good fight, and had kept the faith, and We doubt not, he now enjoys a crown of righteousness.
