PEARL LEONA STURGIS
The Patriots Daily Bites of American History, The Protestant Reformation Series 30, Volume 5
Brewster and Raleigh:
I like to believe that William Brewster shared his motto with Sir Walter Raleigh. We do know Raleigh was highly respected by the Pilgrims and definitely on their side. William Brewster’s motto: “Man is altogether vanity. He passes away as a shadow. His only true home is Heaven. Strangers and Pilgrims indeed, are we on this earth. Still the spot on which we stand; this shore; this new familiar scene. This whole land becomes dearer daily, if it were not only for the precious dust which we have committed to its bosom. Here, rather than elsewhere, (Raleigh’s Heartland, America) would I sleep when mine own hour is come. Here would I have my body reposed with those endeared ones who have shared exceeding labors and whose burdens are now unlocked forever.
I would be near them in the last day and have a part in resurrection. Evident it is to me, that it is our Master’s will to stand or fall in this Land. Did not His Providential hand open the way in every difficulty? We believe this moment to be from Him. Let us stand in our lot. Generation to generation will God’s Blessings descend.”(to be continued)
