Excerpt from From the Pulpit to the Poor-House: And Other Romances of the Methodist Itinerancy House is a romance from real life. The line between fact and fiction can be drawn with difficulty by the author. It was first used as a sermon in the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church, Providence, R. I. It was then rewritten and re vised, and was used as an address at conventions and Annual Conferences. It awakened, such deep interest that requests for its publication came from every part of the country. Many ministers solicited permission to use it as an aid in call ing the attention of the Church to the needs of the veterans of Methodism. It now goes forth accom panied by other story - sermons of a kindred character. This attempt at preaching by making believe is a humble effort to imitate teaching by parable. If the thousands who may read will be as greatly inter osted as the thousands who have heard, no one will.
