WELLS OF SALVATION AND OTHER SERMONS

The first edition of this book came from the press of Curts and Jennings, Cincinnati, in the fall of 1897. It bore upon its title page, "A Souvenir of Six Years' Labor in the Presiding Eldership." In the preface of the volume occurred these words, "Coming District Genesee Conference, became the author's field of labor, by appointment of Bishop Edward G. Andrews, Oct. 6, 1891. This volume is made up wholly of sermons preached on that district. With one exception, they were delivered without any thought that they would ever be put into print, and are now published almost exactly as they were spoken."
The author did not expect the book to go beyond the limits of Corning District. It was quite extensively circulated there. But it leaped those narrow boundaries and went all over the land. It has been heard from in far distant states. The author has met many persons, who before were perfect strangers, and has received letters from all points of the compass telling of good received from reading the volume.
The first edition was soon exhausted. Repeated calls have come for a second edition. The calls became so many and so urgent that, at last, the author suggested to the Christian Witness Company that it might be well for it to undertake the publication of a second edition. The suggestion was accepted and so the book comes out in a new dress. It is reprinted from old plates, and so no changes are made. There are places in several sermons where the author would be pleased to introduce some slight changes. For example, on page 172 Queen Victoria is spoken of as still alive, as she was when that sermon was preached. The last sermon seems out of date, because the figures given of the membership of the Methodist Episcopal church have greatly increased, and there are some local allusions which may seem out of place. But it is not thought best to discard the old plates and set up the work anew, on account of these small matters. The author would not make any change whatever in the doctrines taught in the book. They have stood the test of the years, and he is persuaded that they are the truth. The truth never changes. Changes in times and circumstances require that the methods of presenting the truth shall be modified. That is all, and a new doctrine is of necessity a false doctrine.
