Excerpt from A Pilgrim and His Pilgrimage
In writing this book I have no desire or ambition to enrich the world's literature. Hence, this production will not appeal to the readers of magazines or the lovers of romance. I claim for it no literary merit, and do not expect, in this busy age, that it will be sought after or read beyond the small circle of men and women, some of whom have known me all my life, while others have known me for nearly a half century.
It has occurred to me that the story of my life as told by myself would, in a measure, be interesting to many whose life has touched and enriched my own. Many of these have gone to their reward, but their children, and in some cases their grand-children, re main and they will read with pleasure what is said in this book of the persons and places so sacred to their memory.
While the greater part of the story deals with that part of my life devoted to the ministry and particularly to the pastorate, I have spoken of my ancestry and my early life in order to give completeness to it.
