Excerpt from The Hard Times: A Discourse, Delivered in the Second Unitarian Church, Portland, Sunday, December 31, 1837 We hailed the commencement of the year, my friends, from these sacred places, with songs of joy and of hope. So, from these same sacred places, we are this day to bid the year adieu, in songs of gratitude and of praise. The associations, connected with this day, have brought forcibly to my mind the subject, upon which I addressed you at the commencement of the year. That subject, you will remember, was The Hard Times. And, my friends, you stand in no need of being informed by me, that the hard times still continue. Let this subject then, the hard times, which was the theme of my discourse on the morning of the first, be the theme of my discourse on this, the morning of the last day of the year eighteen hundred and thirty seven. And let the same passage of scripture, which served as a motto on the former occasion, be the guide of our thoughts on the present. "Can ye not discern the signs of the times." Math. 16:3. We have now, my friends, been so long subjected to the pressure of these hard times, that we are enabled to discover some of the effects, which this pressure is actually producing upon the moral character of our community. These effects will of course vary in their character. While some are good, others will be evil. Some will experience the evil effects of these hard times, and in some cases the moral character will fall prostrate before them. Others will experience their good influences and will be morally improved by them. And, it will depend upon each individual's own desires and efforts, whether he will fall within the one class or the other - whether he will be morally ruined or morally benefited by the trials to which he may be subjected. Let us then enquire carefully into the effects, both good and evil, which the pressure of the times is actually producing.
