Excerpt from Recollections of Sixty-Three Years of Methodist Life
Several of my friends have urged me to give to the public some of the recollections of my Methodist life. Whether they were wise in doing so, or whether I was wise in carrying out their suggestion, remains to be seen. When it was first hinted to me I quite ridiculed the idea of "writing a book," it seemed so preposterous. But the idea has clung to me, and the result is now given to the public with fear and trembling.
The late Dr. Punshon suggested to me, years ago, to write some of the memories of my life, for publication in the Methodist Recorder, of which at that time he was editor. I said in reply that I was sure I could write nothing that would be worth reading; but my judgment has been overruled, and, though I did not contribute anything to that influential journal during the editorship of Dr. Punshon, I have been an occasional contributor since, by the kindness of the Rev. Nehemiah Curnock, its present able and genial editor.
