FROTHINGHAM, Washington, clergyman, born in Fonda, New York, 28 February 1822. He received an academic education, became a clerk for Edwin D. Morgan in New York, afterward established himself in wholesale trade, and met with a moderate success. He then studied theology at Princeton, and entered the Presbyterian ministry in 1855. His most important work as a clergyman has been the establishment of the West Side Presbyterian Church in Albany, N.Y. beginning in 1862, he has built up a system of New York correspondence, which now forms a prominent and popular feature of journals in Hartford, Rochester, Scranton, Troy, Utica, and other inland cities. His pen names "Martel," "Macaulay," "Rosicrucian," and "Hermit of New York" are familiar to the reading public, because under them he deals with topics that are seldom treated by other correspondents. He has published in book form " Atheos, or Tragedies of Unbelief" (New York, 1863); " The Martel Papers: Life Scenes in the Reign of Terror" (1865); and other works, all anonymous.
