Gazette & Courier - Monday, September 7, 1874

Beecher-Tilton miscellany - More than 1000 people assembled last Sun. morning to hear the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher preach. Special trains were run over the Boston, Concord and Montreal railroad from Lancaster and the Fabyan House , while hundreds came by coaches and private teams from the mountain hotels and surrounding country. At about half past 10 Mr. Beecher entered the parlor, took a seat on the platform, and assisted as usual in seating the audience, until the spacious room was filled to its utmost capacity. The Christian Union of last week had a long editorial upon the Beecher case, which is a resume mainly of his life, character and work, as pitted against what it believes to be false accusations... Mrs. Theodore Tilton and daughter and her friend Mrs. Ovington, reached Norwalk Ct. Mon. morning, via Shepaug Railroad from New Preston, Litchfield county, where they have been stopping for the past week. Mrs. Tilton appeared to be in good health and spirits, and was heard to remark that her rowing exercises on Lake Waramaug had greatly benefited her. They went at once to New York. Capt. C.C. Duncan, president of the Sailors' Savings bank at Brooklyn, a member of Plymouth Church and formerly superintendent of the Sunday School, has writen a letter to Moulton, endorsing his course and condemning the course of the Beecher investigating committee. Moulton is reported as saying that he fully understands his position before the public and that his next statement will be a clincher. It is stated that the Brooklyn Eagle in defending the libel suit against Bowen will summon Mrs. Beecher, Victoria Woodhull, Tilton and wife, Moulton and everybody else interested in the most remote degree.
