Subseries 10D: Sermons and Addresses, 1827-1879 [bulk: 1827-1879],
contains Maclean's thoughts on a number of topics, especially those of a
religious nature. Many of the Biblical texts on which he preached are
drawn from Psalms, and the books of the New Testament are also
well-represented. His baccalaureate addresses contain words of wisdom
for the graduating class, including the admonition not to “consider your
education completed.” His address in the spring of 1861 makes reference
to the Civil War, which had erupted just a month before, and voices his
hope that “we shall yet, and forever, be one people.”
