He supplied the First Presbyterian Church, Brooklyn, in 1829, but his health soon obliged him to resign, and in 1835 he was appointed to the presidency of Hampden Sidney College, Va., which he held for three years. On retiring he took charge of the First Presbyterian Church in the Northern Liberties of Philadelphia, and subsequently became secretary of the Colonization Society of the state of New York till 1845, when he was obliged to give up all active service. He died Nov. 23, 1851. He published Sermons (18467, 2 vols. 12mo), besides detached sermons and addresses. — Sprague, Annals, 4:697.
