JOHNSON, Samuel, clergyman, born in Salem, Massachusetts. 10 October, 1822; died in North Andover, Massachusetts, 19 Feb, 1882. He was graduated at Harvard in 1842, and at the divinity school in Cambridge in 1846. He entered the ministry without ordination, and his first charge was the Unitarian church in Harrison square, Dorchester, where he remained one year. His political preaching and anti-slavery sentiments gave offence, and his engagement was not renewed. About 1851-'2 he became pastor of a free church in Lynn, Massachusetts, where he remained until 1870, lecturing often upon anti-slavery topics. About 1852-'3 he delivered a course of lectures in Salem, which was the germ of his subsequent works. He compiled with Reverend Samuel Longfellow "Hymns for Public and Private Devotion" (Boston, 1846): and was the author of "Oriental Religions," comprising "India" (Boston, 1872), "China" (1877), and "Persia" (1885). See a memoir of him by Samuel Longfellow (Boston, 1883).
