"On the 8th of March, 1821, Rev. Walter Chapin, pastor of the Congregational Church in this place, put forth the prospectus of a small missionary paper, called the Evangelical Monitor. It was to be published once a fortnight, at fifty cents a year....For various reasons, however, the Evangelical Monitor, at the end of the second year, was discontinued, though in many respects it was quite a meritorious publication." - Dana, History of Woodstock, Vermont (1889) p. 252.
