Excerpt from Virginia Baptist Ministers
I count it an honor, indeed, to hold a modest relation with this book which in a little while is to be presented to the public. It is mine to introduce this volume to the Baptists of Virginia. It is one of a continuous series of biographical records of Baptist ministers of Virginia, who have finished their work and entered into rest. It ought to be recalled that previous volumes of the series appeared years ago, and finished their task up to the year 1860. It was the wish of the Virginia Baptists, expressed in their late annual meeting at Norfolk, that the present volume Should cover all the last forty years of the nineteenth century. But the author has found that if he Should undertake in any adequate way to embody biographical sketches of all Baptist ministers who died in Virginia during that period of time, it would make a volume too large for companionship with the volumes which have gone before. The author of this book, soon to be published, expresses the hope that some other writer will take up the story at the point where he ends, and bring it up, at least, to the year 1910. But it can be safely said that the public will insist that the honored and great-hearted gentleman who is preparing the present volume may be persuaded to bring out the other volume as soon as he may find it con sistent with the cares of his rich and busy life to do so.
