The writer will, in every instance, publish With out alteration all the manuscripts found in dr.wel lons' own handwriting, suitable for the work. We have a Diary of a few years of the first of his min istry; after that We have nothing to draw from but our memory, which is too treacherous to do him justice We have, however, a Sketch written by himself of our parents, of his early training, his first religious impressions, his call to the ministry, with some of his troubles and afﬂictions, that we will publish, preceded by a Sketch prepared by Rev. B. H. Holland. The cheif aim of the writer is to have as much of william B. Wellons as pos sible. If we fail to make the book as interesting and entertaining as we could wish, we will do our best to make it worthy of a careful reading by his many friends by inserting some of his sermons and addresses that we may be able to procure.
