The letter is typed on a sheet of Clearwater's personalized letterhead and is dated "August 31st, 1922" . Very good .
Howard Crosby [1826- 1891] was an American preacher and teacher, great-grandson of Judge Joseph Crosby of Massachusetts and of General William Floyd of New York, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Crosby was professor of Greek at New York University in 1851 and in 1859 was appointed professor of Greek at Rutgers College. Two years later he was ordained pastor of the first Presbyterian Church. From 1863 until his death he was pastor of Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City. Crosby took a prominent part in politics. He was a founder and the first president of the New York Society for the Prevention of Crime, and pleaded for better management of Indian affairs. In this sermon, he preaches against crime in New York City and the corruption of judges and city officials. He urges the citizens to support the Society for the Prevention of Crime. Very good .
