Ebenezer Erskine Censured.

Birth of Ebenezer Erskine in Dryburgh, Berwickshire. He was a "Marrowman," one of the evangelicals who was deeply impressed by a book titled Marrow of Modern Divinity. Disgusted that wealthy patrons decided which clergyman would be hired in many churches, he called for local election of pastors. He was censured for this view. With other pastors, he founded the Secession Church and was deposed from the Church of Scotland.
