The Rev. Flavel S. Mines, founder of Trinity Church, San Francisco, did not survive the year in which he preached this sermon, dying on August 5, 1852, and being buried beneath the chancel. This address contains early references to the Chinese in California as well as Indians, Kanaka, and Hindoos. Mines fears that instead of teaching them "a heavenly morality, we have pulled them down from the higher rounds of the ladder where they stood nearer heaven than ourselves" (p. 6). San Francisco is compared to Antioch.
