Book Details: William Bates, D.D. (1625-1699), who has been called the "silver-tongued divine". The funeral sermon for a fellow minister among the Puritans became a quite special occasion, calling forth the highest eloquence. In the last years of his life Bates was pastor of the presbyterian church of Hackney. He died there 14 July 1699, aged seventy-four, having outlived and preached the funeral sermons of Baxter, Manton, Jacomb, and Clarkson. His death was celebrated in a widely published sermon by Howe.
