Abstract: Letters to Universalist minister Stephen Presson Landers (1812-1876).
Stephen Presson Landers (1812-1876) was born in South Bainbridge, New York. In 1834, he entered the Clinton Liberal Institute in Clinton, New York, and began preaching in Pennsylvania two years later. Landers was ordained as a Universalist minister in 1839 at Binghamton, New York, and spent the next 10 years in various ministerial settlements in Massachusetts. He also worked with Zephaniah Baker on the periodical Gospel Messenger and Providence and Worcester Journal from 1842 to 1843. In 1849, Landers returned to Clinton, New York, and devoted the rest of his life to a private seminary he established within his own household.
