ministerial labors altogether; but with returning
health, God gave him increased courage, and he kept
on laboring in his Master's cause until within a few
days of his unlooked for and early death.
On the 3d of March, 1740, he was at Goshenhoppen,
where in the evening he for the last time met and
instructed his catechumens; and on the following
morning, although in feeble health, and only six days
before his death, he preached for the last time to his
congregated friends. A synopsis of Weiss's remarks
on these occasions is given by Hoffman at the close of
his interesting Manuscripts.
Weiss was an example of unaffected piety, simplicity,
and fidelity, well versed in spiritual knowledge, earnest
and impressive in his ministrations. He was a
worthy son of the venerable Casper Weiss, who, when
quite old and weak in body, was called before the notorious
Neander and compelled to stand in the latter's
study for six long hours to give an account of his faith.
