Excerpt from A Discourse on the Proper Subjects of Christian Baptism
But to whom is the seal, or token of the covenant, to be applied 'l Did the Saviour leave his disciples in dark ness or in doubt on this important subject? Surely he did not - but he knew well the instruction they needed, and gave them none that was unnecessary. He well knew their advantages for understanding him, when he gave them their commission to baptize. And no thought is suggested, that they were at any loss to know whom to baptize. They were in no doubt, it appears, to whom the token of the covenant belonged, or to whom it Should be applied - whether to adults only, or to infants also. And, if there was no room for doubt, it must have been a very plain case.
