Excerpt from Autobiography

My recollections cover the time from 1843, when I stood by my mother's knees and listened to a discussion by her and the Rev. Natha niel W. Aspinwall, about the Millerite craze that was then sweeping over the country, and about its disastrous effects on the churches in Bristol and the community in general. I did not take in the full scope of the discussion, but I clearly discerned that something terrible was abroad in the land, and, indeed, that a calamity had visited Bristol; and the picture then formed on the retina of my memory has remained with all its vivid colors through life.

The chief topic of discussion in those days was the immediate com ing of Christ and the end of the world. Large numbers of people completely lost their reasoning powers. They not only believed in the end Of the world at a time only a few months in advance, but they con tended that a belief in this doctrine was essential to salvation when the end should come. Some went so far as to prepare robes in which to ascend to glory. The chief effect of this craze was to unfit people for the every-day work of life. Business was neglected, maps were left ungathered in the field, and many were brought to suffer for their im providence. David Trumbull of Hill was one of the leading spirits in the Millerite craze in this section. In the fall of 1843 he had a large field of potatoes that he declined to dig because he should not need them. One day Hezekiah Sargent, a neighbor, asked permission to dig a few. Yes, said Trumbull, dig all you wish. I only want a few to last me the short time I shall stay here. Sargent gathered the crop. Time wore on and Trumbull needed more potatoes than he had put into his cellar and called on Sargent to help him out, when Sargent coolly replied he did not know as he had any to spare.
