Excerpt from History of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Canada In this history i have labored to place the original Methodists in their true position before the Christian Church and the public generally; and although sonic readers may think the following pages are more controversial in their character than is usual in such a work, it must be remembered that the first history of a country or a church should embrace, as far as possible, the leading incidents connected with its career. Though I have in some instances (perhaps sharply) refuted the attacks made by leading men of the Canada Conference on the Methodist Episcopal Church in this country. I have not done so through malice, nor from personal ill-will to the parties engaged in the controversy; but from a consciousness of duty to God. to the Church, and to Christian liberty. I have been at very great pains to collect proper material for this publication; and one of my most difficult tasks has been to condense and arrange the matter in a way suitable for such a sized book. I have made as few notes as possible, and have not given the names of all the authorities whom I have consulted, in the body of the work, as it would have very much enlarged the volume and added to its price. I have consulted and am indebted to the following authors, pamphlets, and papers for much valuable information on Methodism. Tam also indebted to many parties who have given me much reliable information that I could not derive from books. I am indebted to European works as follows: - Whiteheads "Life of Wesley;" Moore's "Life of Wesley;' Watson's "Life of Wesley;" "The Life of Charles Wesley;" "Ireland and the Centenary of Methodism." by Rev. William Crook, with several other English and Irish publication; . About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
