Owing to impaired health, he was obliged to give up his college course, and left us
in July, 1861, at the close of our first year. He spent some time in regaining his
health, and then entered the Theological Seminary at Bangor, Maine, completing the course,
and graduating July 27, 1865. He was ordained as a Congregational minister on
December 20, 1865, at Hopkinton, New Hampshire. After leaving his pastorate there, he
spent some time in Lowell, Massachusetts, his health not being sufficient to allow of his
doing much work. In October, 1868, he accepted a call to Swanzey, New Hampshire,
where the work would only be such as he would be able to do. After two years' labor
there, he went for a short time to Westminster, Massachusetts, and then to Assonet
Village, Massachusetts. In October, 1874, he became pastor of the Second
Congregational Church of Marshfield, Massachusetts, where he remained until January,
1878. In October, 1878, he accepted a call to the Congregational Church at Hampton,
New Hampshire, where he remained until June, 1883.
A local paper has the following: "Mr. Cutler is about to finish his labors with our
people. We think it difficult to solve the problem as to where the man is who can fill Mr.
Cutler's place. He is a man of excellent learning, and during his stay here has preached
some excellent sermons. We think it was a mistake letting him go.''
After leaving Hampton, he severed his connection with the Congregationalists,
and was received into the Protestant Episcopal church, in order to enter the ministry of
that church. The Bishop has assigned him to the charge of St. Matthews parish, in
Goffstown, New Hampshire, which is his present residence.
He was married September 12, 1865, to Miss Mary C. Spofford, of Lowell,
Massachusetts. They have two children: Anna Evelyn, born December 2, 1869, and Clara
Louise, born January 30, 1872.
