An Appeal to the Methodist Episcopal Church (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from An Appeal to the Methodist Episcopal Church The following Appeal has, I trust, been triade in the fear of God, and with an eye to his glory. It is with a deep feeling of responsibility to God, the Church, and the world, that it is now committed to the public. It is more particularly designed, as its title indicates, for the M. E. Church; though in consequence of the identity of anti-slavery principles, the greater portion of it will be found to contain matter of general interest. The anti-slavery discussion forms a new era in the history of the M. E. Church. The principal facts and arguments connected with this discussion, should have a more permanent existence than that of newspaper articles; and I, doubt not, the time will come, when a repository containing such matters will be highly valued. The Wesleyan anti-slavery Review will be published again in 1839 and 1840, unless some unforeseen circumstance should prevent it. The present number contains matter enough to fill a common sized octavo volume of from 300 to 400 pages. The publication of this work was not deter mined upon till a short time before it was commenced. Should it be continued, more attention will be paid to future numbers. The next number will contain more matter of general interest, though it will be suited to the discussion in the M. E. Church. The history of this-discussion will be continued in future num bers, and new and important topics will be introduced. Two numbers more will make a volume of about 450 pages, which will con tain more matter than two common sized octavo volumes of 500 pages each. Such'a volume will be of consequence hereafter. Those who wish for the work complete, will do well to preserve this, as they may not be able to obtain it hereafter.
