    Notes 
    • From the Loring Genealogy, pages 29–31:
      Mr. Loring was graduated from Harvard College in 1701, receiving the degree of Bachelor of Arts; he took his degree of Master of Arts in 1704. Meantime he had studied divinity and was called to the ministry of the church of Sudbury; was ordained November 20, 1706, and continued in office and performing its duties sixty-six years; he had no colleague or assistant.
      He was tall and slender, energetic and forcible, yet affectionate. He was a preacher of more than ordinary eloquence, and a writer whose productions found willing readers. He preached on various stirring themes, strongly Calvinistic and serious, warning men of the dreadful results of wrongdoing and the unspeakable delights and rewards of following the right way. “Serious Thoughts on the Miseries of Hell”; “The Glories of the Heavenly World”; a sermon to young men; an appeal to the General Court in his election sermon, to provide for the children of those who had been unjustly punished or executed in the witchcraft madness; “Remarks on the Necessity of Legal Restraints in the Vending of Ardent Spirits,” etc.; such were some of the fruits of his active, earnest,
      philanthropic soul. He kept a journal which has been preserved at Sudbury, in the public library and elsewhere, together with a great many letters and other manuscript notes. The journal extends over many years, and tells many items of a strictly personal nature, describes his own feelings at various times but gives little that is quotable for the reading of the public or of the Loring family at large. This is also true of the letters.
      Mr. Loring speaks with deep emotion of the sickness and death of "Simeon," a negro slave, remarking that he was much attached to him because he had been born and brought up in his house and had showed so many fine traits of character, and had just attained his freedom (twenty-one years old the month previous). Nothing in the journal suggests that this was a negro boy,—and, plainly, color and servitude did not cause any separation between the souls of “master” and “slave.” Simeon died May 10, 1755.
      Mr. Loring preached twice on the Sabbath but one before his death, and made the prayer at town meeting the next day, but was taken ill there and carried home in a sleigh; he steadily failed till his system yielded.
      He died March 9, 1772, aged ninety years. In his will, dated October 10, 1770, he gave his estate to his sons, Jonathan and Nathan, his daughters, Elizabeth Manson, Mary Wheeler, Sarah Browne and Susannah Moulton, and his grandchildren, John and Mary Loring, children of his deceased son, John Loring. He had lands in Rutland and Princeton beside his homestead in Sudbury; he ordered his library to be “equally divided” between his heirs. [3]
