0.4. What Preachers have died during the past year? 

A. 1. William Stkv£ns, a man of unaiiected piety, upright 
conduct, and Christian plainness. He was a native of Plymouth 
Dock. In early life he was brought to the knowledge of the 
troth, and the enj >yment of the Divine favour, through the mi- 
nistry of the Methodist preachers. He united himself with that 
people in Christian fellowship, and enjoyed oil the privileges of 
their society. Convinced thatit was his duty to do something for 
the good of his fellow-creatures and the glory of God, he began 
by visiting the sick, reproving the wicked, and circulating 
ptmphlets, on various religious subjects for the instruction of the 

EranL He also attenaed public meetings for prayer, and in 
I took a leading part. Appointed by the Superintendant he 
filled the office of a Class- Leader with great success. In 1784, 
he had sach a view of the lost state of man, accompanied with a 
conviction in his own mind that God had called him to preach 
the Gospel, as caused him, though with much fear, to enter upon 
l)ie important work. In 1786, he was recommended to Mr. 
Wesley as a proper person to be wholly given up to the ministry, 
and received his first appointment to the Gloucester Circuit. As 
a Travelling Preacher he laboured in the Connexion sixteen 
years, with an unblemished character and great usefulness. In 
J80S, owing to a confirmed asthma, he i^as obliged to desist 
travelling, and the Conference appointed him English Master at 
KifUjswood School, which place he filled for four years ; after 
vhicn be kept, on Kingswood Hill, a Classical and Commercial 
Academy to the day of his death. 

He was a man of great humility, self-denial, and dcvotedncss 
to God. After many years of great affliction, he terminated his 
mortal existence, in the full triumph of faith, on Wednesday, 
Nov. 22,. 1813, in the 51st year of his age, when his happy 
spirit went home to God. 

2. WiiLiAM Mahy, a native of Guernsey, was awakened out 
of the sleep of sin, under the ministry of Mr. John dc Qaetvillc. 
A few weeks afterwards, he found peace with (rod through our 
Lord Jesus Christ. In 1790, he was employed for two or three 
iDooths as an Itinerant Preacher in Jersey and in Alderney ; in 
vhicb last place he was in danger of losiiig his life by his faithful- 
ness. Soon after this he was sent to France, and for eighteen 

A8 



( 6 ) [iSli. 

rears and a half ehdared a great many trials and afflictions there. 
He preached in many places, and was the instrument of forming 
several small societies; but on account of the prejudices of the 
people, the wickedness of the priests, the circumstances of the 
timt s, and his own personal affliction, he had not all the success 
he desired. Some lime after it had pleased the Almighty (whose 
ways are past 6nding«out) to deprive him of his reason, he was 
brought back to Guernsey ; and when he had been there a while^ 
it was Judged necessary to send him to England, that he might 
have all that medical assistance and suitable njanagement could 
contribute towards his recovery. He finished his course of suf- 
fering, with a hope full of immortality, on Dec. I, 1813, in the 
60th year of his age. Nearly his last words were, ^^ My de- 
pendance is on the merits of my Saviour, and the mercy of a 
good God doc s not forsake me.** 

5. John Martin, a man of piety and zeal. He travelled 
fourteen years with general acceptance, was made useful in the 
vineyard of Christ, and died well. 

4. Thomas MAbSKY, a young man of unblemished morals, and 
undoubted piety. Although he possessed but very slender minis* 
terial labilities, we have reason to believe that he would have la- 
boured with niore general acceptance in the churches, had he not 
been called too early into the itinerancy. He died in peace, after 
a short illness. 

6. John Pritchard, aged 71, a native of the county of Meatb, 
in Ireland. Early in life he united himself with the Methodists, 
and became experimentally acquainted with the truth as it is in 
Jesus. His conversion was sound. His knowledge of the par- 
doning love of God was clear and distinct. Soon after he began 
his Chrisiiau course, the Spirit itself bore witness with his spirit 
that he was a child of God ; and he earnestly panted after a full 
conformity to the Divine image. In the year 1771, he began to 
preach ; and in the same year Mr. Wesley sent him into the 
Wiltshire Circuit. He continued to travel till the Conference in 
IS02; when, at the request of his brethren, he became Governor 
of Kingswood School. In that situation he remained till the 
year 1807, when, under growing infirmities, he retired from it, 
and lived in Biistol until he was called to his eternal rest, 

Mr. Pritchard was a warm advocate for the doctrines of the 
Gospel, ns held by the Methodists. He preached with zeal and 
energy, n free, full, and present salvation, to be obtained by 
fiiith in Christ ; and, towards the close of his life, often expressed 
to his intimate friends a concern for the perpetuation of sound 
doctrine, genuine Christian experience, holy living, and godly 
discipline, among the Meihodjsts. 

G. William Peacock, a young man of solid piety. He la- 



18I4w] { f ) 

boured nine years In onr connexion, with great zeal, fkithfiilnesst 
and usefulness. He had a sound mind, inured to reading and 
dose study, which appeared in his public ministry. For some 
yetrs he laboured as an Irish Missionary, when, in the JleldSf 
ibtfairSj and marketSj he proclaimed the everlasting gospel. He 
was blessed with a strong constitution, which he resolved to 
defote to the glory of God ; but in one hour his strength was 
brought down by a stroke, the effects of which no medical as- 
Bsttnce could remove. When on the Miltown Circuit, a mob, 
ia the night, surrounded the house in which he lodged, outra- 
teoQi^ly cidling for the preacher ; and while they were breaking 
m at the front of the house, he escaped out by the back door, 
timost naked. The fear of being murdered, added to his Iving 
on the wet grass for several hours, brought on spasms^ by which 
he was occa:»ionally afDicted until he died. He, however, as op- 

Crtnnity ofiered, rejoiced to. publish the loving kindness of the 
»rd. The evening before he died he preacLcd with uncommon 
energy, afler which he walked with a religious friend, talking of 
the things of God ; and upon his return to his own house, his 
spasms returned with extreme violence, and continued until the 
next morning, when his spirit returned to God, Aug. 9, 1813. 

7. Matthias Joyce, a brother whose memory is precious to 
all who knew him. He was early in life converted from the 
errors of Popery. A full and pleasing account is given in the 
Methodist Magazine of 1786, of the progress of the work of 
grace in his soul till his call to the ministry, and of his travels 
and labours in various parts of Ireland. He was a man of a re- 
markably loving and peaceable disposition, a wise, acceptable, 
and successful preacher, much tried in his family by various 
afflictions, which no doubt preyed on his spirits, and helped to 
bring on that debility both of body and mind, which disqualified 
him from preaching during the last three years of his lite. He 
was engaged in the ministry thirty years, and died as he had lived, 
an Israelite indeed, in whom was no guile. 

a 5. Are there any objections to any of our Preachers? 

^. They were examined one by one. 

Q. 6. Who have desisted from travelling? 

A. 1. John Williams, 2d, and William Blanshard. 

2. John Foster, who, having improperly " entangled himself 
with the affairs of this life," has left the work. 

3. Henry Crawshaw, (jfeorge Cotton, David Clarke, Richard 
Moxon, Joseph Smith, and (in Ireland) Alexander Stewart, 
retire for want of health.

* and Manchester Districts. 



For the diapels in Scotland : in the Halifiix, Leeds, Sheffield, 
Nottingham, Lincolnshire, York, Whitby, Newcastle, Carlisle, 
Edinburgh, and Aberdeen Districts. 

N. B. These extraordinary applications are to be made only in 
private^ unless the Superintendants of the circuits consent that 
they shall be made in the public eongrwations. And the Preachers 
who may visit the several circuits on this business, shall do it at 
sneh times as may be deemed most e^^pedient by the Preachers of 
those Circuits respectively. 

Qi 15. What method shall be adopted, in order to raise the 
necessary pecuniary supplies, for the support of our Missions ? 

A. We strongly recommend the immediate establishment of a 
MethodiU Mittianary Society in every District in the kingdom, 
(in which it has not been aireadv accomplished,) on the general 
Plan of those Societies which have been formed in Yorkshire 
and elsewhere during the past year.

ADDRESSES. 

The ADnmess of the Irish Conference to the British 

Conference. 

Dear Fathers and Brethreti^ 
YOUR affectionate Address we have received, not as a matter 
of cfTpmonionf luage^ but as a returning assurance of xVuX id« 



( 40 ) [1814. 

lovirship which we have with you ; and truly our feUowihip it widi 
the Father, and with his Son, Jesus Christ. Joyful are we to 
feel tb .t iu all things we nn united in our common Head ; sharing 
the ktimt* c 'nsiolations of ihe Holy Ghost; feeling the aame un* 
fei^neii zc"\ fur the iidvaui m-. nt of thf Kingdom ol Chriat; and 
a8>ured of the same t.ope of eternal life, unto which we are odlcd. 

\W tri>)y symp.tthize wiih you in the removal of ao many of 
your vc'iH'ra ;!*' :)iini.stir<» from the church militant ;"«»>two|iaTe tbia 
year also i ikeri their fli|>ht to God from umonp;st ouraelvesi— mea 
of piory iind zoal, and whose praise is in all the churches. Bii( 
while the»c vct'trnns in the Lord's Hosts have been called from 
the >iceRC uf wa> fare to the reward of glory and eternal pcaoe^ we 
shduld be stimulated with un holy vigour, and should awake to 
all those rnrr^ies m^i^ssury to fill up the broken (inea; and, with 
a ^imila^ hdelity and haidinessi encourage one another to a^riye 
fur the h<jpe of the ^i)»pel. 

It affords us no small pleasure that our feeble attempts to render 
minis* criul ^ervices auK^t^bt us more useful and iftceptable bava 
not been di-counten. need, but rather encouraged by your ap- 
proval; and that sitnilar exertions are likely to succeed towards 
the same end?, on your side of the water. For, however confi* 
dent we may be, that •xithoiU God nothing is koh — tiothing U 
tvise — ncthiv^ is shoff^^ ,- we are also persuaded, tnat when the 
ntcessary inean« of ministerial usefulness, boih as to the matter 
and manner of preach in <;, are ne^^lected, (where the opportunity 
of improvement is within our reach,) the Divine blessing cannot 
be expected; but, on the contrary, it will be prevented, in as 
much as negli^>enco prevents the acquirement of knowledge, and 
cnihu^iastical presumption prevents the genuine inspiration of tbe 
Holy Spirit. 

Wi' have to deplore with you aUo the serious embarrassment 
of our pecuniiiry r.flidrs, which annually and unavoidably bht 
creases. The ^lethodl^ts of Ireland are generally npeorpeopkf 
and, as you j i^tly observe, ** The itinerant plan is an expentitve 
one:'' yet when ue consider, that without the smallest aid of 
patnmaae or support from those sources which have poured wealth 
into (ither churches, we have been so graciously assisted in on? 
goixl work, we arc encouraged still to repose upon the foUness 
and sufliciency of Him. who^e are all things, and to the abound* 
inr; of whose love in the hearts of his people we have never un^ 
availin/^ly app.^aUd. 

We have heard, with joy, of your prosperity— of the success 
of the (:p'pe|7-niid of the extraordinary out-pouring of Uod*s 
Spirit upon you, especially in the West of England. O beloved I 
highly favoiin d of the Lord I Yc s, Britain has had her pcnti- 
co:!itid visiii'ticmsl From her has gone furdi, (as from Jndea in 
the. former days,) the sure word of prophecjf i in her bosom was 
^rst kindled (in these latter timesj the (vcdnidfire of Hft^tianarji 



1814.] ( 41 ) 

uttli and at much cii8t1IljB^1lt^hed by her pacify in^^ policy, as by 
her love of the gospel. While she hascorquered Peace, she has 
shed the glorioat light of the Scriptures on all the nations of the 
earth I 

With an holy gratitade we hail the return of Pence to the 
nations of Europe; and adore that awful {'rovidrrce, which, 
after desolating the nations, has brought down the miuhty from 
their thrones, and laughed to scorn the cuunsels of wicked men. 
This is the Lord's doings, and it is marvellous in cuir eyes ! — It 
is oor ardent prayer, in this auspicious moment, when Peace has 
resamed her seat in her sacred temple, and the sword is turned 
into a plough-share, and the spear into a pruning-hook, 'that 
benign peace and love may more gcnendly be felt amongst pro- 
fessiDg Christians ; and that, by a corJinJ endeavour to keep the 
unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, we may ^' by love serve 
one another.** 

Feeling as wc ought our abhorrence of the probable continuance 
of that nefarious traffic in human blood — the Slave Tmde, we 
have, as a religious body of Ministers, humbly presiented our 
Petition to botti Houses of Parliament, that his Mnjesty'b Mi- 
nisters may be directed to use their utmost influence at the ap- 
proaching Congress, for its instant and total abolition. In this 
we believei we speak the language of humanity, of religion, und 
of God. 

In our religions relation to society, notwithstanding the poH« 
ticai cor^tentions excited in this country, and the daring out<» 
rages which have of l«te been frequent and alarming, wo hnve had 
no cause to fear — we have had no interruption or our me«Mings, 
nor obstruction of our active and vigorous itinerrtury. Under 
a mild and liberal administration we have had (M^ace in all our 
borders; and by a prompt and constant obedience to the hiws of 
the Empire, our Society stands in the front of pn*>lin confident o. 

At our Conference^ last year, a most cordial feeling of interest 
in the success qf the Jiritish and Foreign Bible Socie.y was ope-« 
rative: and, in order to further the important and benevolent 
view^ of that Institution, it was directed that a Public CoUecfiofi 
should be made in each Circuit, in aid of its funds. We roc^rct 
that in this we have not been as succe^bful as the mapiimdc of 
the olgects demands; but we hnve given our mite^ and what is 
more than silvet and ^dd^ viz. many prayers to the ** Father of 
Lights^** that he would send forth hib 'IViith as the morninc;, and 
his Righteousness as the sun at noon day; " That the (rt^niiles 
may come to his light, and Kings to the brightness of his rising." 

The state of our Missions will l>e laid before your Committee; 
and we bless the gracious Lord, that while this good work goes 
forward prosperously, we have, by great cxertionS) been iVft&xV} 
fflat)led to cover the expense of t(ie iast year. 



( 42 ) [1814. 

We deeply and sincerely regret, that our venerated friend and 
brother. Dr. Clurko, did not fifid it convenient to attend oar 
Conference : being, ns we understand, so engaged as nni to adoik 
of his mct*tin<^ either your appointment, or our most nfiectionata 
wibhcs. We have, however, endeavoured, by looking to Ood 
in whom is our sufficii-ncy, to supply that lack of service; and 
we have voted our beloved and reverend Brother, Adam Avcreils 
into the chair; and feel it our duty to express our warmest ap-? 
probation of the manner and spirit in wiiich he discharged the 
office of PresidcuL Our cose this Ccmference we consider as an' 
extraordinary one, and wholly unprovided for: we therefore 
entreat you to make such provision as may in fatui'e preveaf; 
the recurrence of a similar inconvenience. The office of Pra^i*' 
dent amongst us next year, we trust you will fill as your best judg- 
ment shall determine. lor the present we do not feel disposed 
to direct the man of your choice, but request that some one of 
your Budj/ may be appointed. 

We send, as our repre^entntive, our much-loved and highly- 
respected Urother, Samuel Wo^id : and are always glad to recoil 
nize, in these interchanges of afft'ction and confidence, that we 
arc followers together ol' Christ Jesus. 

We dovoutly pray, that the riches of the grace and of the 
knowledge of Gml may abound in you — that in all things you 
may be approved by him who is Judi^e of all — and that we all 
may l)e glorified together in the day of his coming.

The Answer of the Buitish Conference to the Irish 

Addrlss. 

Beloved and respected Brethreriy 

YOUR Address, delivered to us by our respected Brother^ 
Mr. Samuel Wood, has been read in full Conference; and we 
rejoice to learn from it, that the Great Lord of the Harvest con- 
tinues to crown your labours with success. In common with you, 
we feel a union of heart with all the true ministers of Christ, but 
especially with those who maintain the scriptural doctrines so ably 
explained by our late venerable Founder, and who support that 
excellent discipline which the tCbt of seventy years has proved to 
be admirably c^dculatcd to promote the genuine piety. Other 
revivals of religion, in diffi:rent ages of the Church, have rarely 
survived a generation ; but that which had its rise at Oxford 
about the year 1729, continues to the preftent time in all its pri- 
mitive vigour. This circumstance may be adduced in proof of 
the soundness of the doctrines and excellence of the discipline 



18U.] ( 43 ) 

Daintained in our Connexion. Fur had not 'the preachers who 
preceded us continued to ^^ hold fast the form of sound wordb,'' 
they would not have been in>truineniai in turning sinners from 
darkness to light ; and had they not excrcisul chrihtian discipline, 
liowever ably ihey might have preached the grand doctrines of 
the Go>pei, they woiiiu have witnessed little or no abiding fruit 
of their labour>. But th'.y wore men of Ciod, who took heed to 
thtmsdves^ and to a//the fiuck over wh rh the Ilt^ly Ghost had 
made them ovci>ecrK : hoce ihe hand of the Lord was with ihem, 
and many were brou;;ht to God, ana built up in fuith and love 
by their instninienlality. Oar contittucd pro^p(Tityy as a reli« 
gious body, cvincfs that we have not deviatfo, citiier in doctrine 
or discipline, from the scriptural pnth wliich iLcy pointed out to 
us, by precept und example. With tho*>e eniiiitnt servants of 
the living C'od, who have gone to their gteat reward, several of 
us vere personally iiccjijaint"d ; i* e still revere thcMr memory, and 
earnestly desire lo imitate their bright example, by devoting our- 
leWes entirely to God, and by a faithful discharge oi every mini- 
fteriai duty. 

Nor are we wjthont hope, fhat not only the present, but every 
socceeding rare of Pieacherti in our Connexion, will, hy exemplary 
holiness of life, and a t.iilhful dihchargi* i f tlie duLies of their 
high and holy callai^^ .'idiirn ilic ir sacicd profe>!'ion. This hope, 
under God, we touml upon the <;reai c::re and caution U!»ed in 
thcadmisftion of Prcachcih upot. trial or into 'nli comirxic n ; and 
the strict exa!Tiinat!on in point of doctrines, p'or:t:N a!i(i dihcipline, 
which every Preachcr^ii character aimuaiiy unJcrgoes in his re- 
spective District Meeting and in the Confirence. 

Tiio fotlowing arc chiefly the dociriii'.s to whi'h their unef|ui- 
vocal as>ent is demanded : — A Trinity of Persons in the Unity of 
the Godhead; the total depraviry of nil men hy nature, in con- 
sequence of Adam's fall ; the atoi^fn^ent n.nc'e by Chri.-t forthc 
si^s of all the human riee; justificariMn t>y tHitl: ; the absolute 
neceh.iity of holiness both in hean and lif'*; the drect witness of 
the Spirit; and the proper eternity ot'luuirc reward- and punish- 
ments. These, and theilnctiines connecbn^ with ih.ni, you well 
know, form the system of our divinity. No) is the examination 
of our Preachers on the sulyecl of rriirals, in whieh we include 
tempers words, and actions, le<s faithful ; niid it is well known, 
that a neglect of di*«ciplinc would sul jeit to censure any of our 
Preachers, however re>peLiaule for years, ptily, mikI tahnts. 
Add to all this, that no nun i^^ so nuu h as n<)mitted upon trial 
among us, without giving all the evi;lence that the nnturc ot the 
lubjec t will admit, that he enjfiy*^ a sen.-e of his acceptance with 
God, and is going on to perfection. 

But as suitable abilities, in addition togo<llin^ssand orthodoxy, 
are essential requibitea for the work of the ministry, we neithei: 



( U ) [181*. 

admit nor continuo among us men, who, by Delecting to im» 
prove their minds, evidence tbeir unfitness for tne blessed work 
of feeding tlie Lord's people with knowledge and understanding. 
The advantages which our Preachers now possess for mental im- 
provement arc numerous; and we are happy to observe that in 
general they so avail themselves of those advantages, as to be* 
come workmen that need not to be ashamed. 

The late glorious revival of the work of God in the West of 
England, excites our wannest gratitude to Him, who at his {dea- 
sure aflbrds extraordinary times of refreshing from his presence^ 
Such times you have been repeatedly favoured with in Ireland ; 
and we trust that they will become general throughout the vriiole 
of our Connexion. 

The zeal and liberality of our people, during the past year, in 
behalf of our Missions, have be«n unprecedented ; and we have 
considerably increased the number of our Misnonariea* Your 
great exertions in support of the same holy Cause, and of the 
work of God at large, merit our decided approbation. 

We hail with you the return of peace, after a long- protracted 
and most sanj^uinary war ; and we feel unfeigned gratiUide In 
Him, who rules in the kingdoms of men, for employing the 
British government, under which we enjoy so mucn civil and 
religious liberty, as the principal instrpment of restoring taran* 
quillity to Europe. 

We have appointed our highly respected Brother, Mr. Waltbh 
Griffith, the late President of our Conference^ to preside at 
your next Conference ; and we doubt not that our common Lord 
will make his visit a blessing, not only to your Conference, bat 
to thousands, who shall in vour metropolis, sit under his ministry.

. What Preachers have died during tiie past year? 
I, We have this year to record the departure of Thomas 
LL. D. who died on his voyage wiili six Missionaries for 
I, and other parts of the East, on May 3, 181 1*. On the 
y of that month he was indisposed \ but not so as to excite 
ension of danger. On the following daj he was able to 
lie air on deok. After he retired in the evenings Vve^ ^ 



( 90 ) [I8I5. 

nsnal, pressed the hand of the Missionary who attended himiiD 
prayed the Lord to bless him. But when his apartment was en 
tered on the following morning, it was found that his spirit faai 
escaped to the mansions of light. His remains were committee 
to the great deep in S. Lat. 2 deg. 29 min. E. I^ong. 59 deg. SS 
jnin. until the grave and the sea shall give up their dead. 

Dr. Coke was a Gentleman- Commoner of tFesus College, Qi- 
ford, where he took the decree of Doctor of Laws. He became 
acquainted with the writings of the late Rov. ,F. FletchbIi 
(which were instrumental in leading him to a saving knowledge of 
the gospel,) and with the Rev. J. Wesley and his Sodetieii 
From 1786, Dr. Coke had the principal direction of our Missioiiib 
and to this «rl(»riou^ cau-se he oniircly yielded up all his time, 
strength, and talciils. It has been truly stated, that for maiij 
years he *^ stooped to tlio very drudgery of charity, and gii- 
tuitously pleaded the cause of u perishing world from door to 
door." Under his infliiencr. Missions were established in alnioit 
every English island ol the West Indies. The flame of his M»' 
sionary zeal bui^t forth on British Aniericn. jMcthodist SedetM 
were formed by him, or under his supcrintendancr, in Nova Scodif 
'Hevf Brunswick, and the islands on the Ka«t( rn coast of the 
American Continent, »nd sub>t-qucntiy in the H.ihamas and Berv 
muda; and to the coa^t of Africa also, he directed his zealous 
ciforts. 

Dr. Coke was characterised principally by his simplicity and 
fervour of spirit. His ministry was generally acceptable, and 
his labours in promoting the great cause of religion, were highly 
estimated by all who knew their beneficial importance. A LiK' 
of this eminent man is preparing for the press. 

2. John Davi«, a native of London, who wns employed ai • 
Missionary in the \\'est Indies. His piety was eminent : he lived 
in the spirit of his Christian profession, and in that spirit he died. 
His talents as a Mini.stcr were respectable, and his labours were 
generally approved. The early close of a life and ntinistry, 
which were equally devout and useful, is deeply lamented by those 
who knew him ; and his reward is with the f^ord. 

3. William Saunpeks, who on the 11th of April, 1815^ 
and in the 70th year of his age, was called to his great reward- 
He became an Itinerant Preacher in the year 1777,^and con- 
tinned his labours with general acceptance, until the year 28O69 
wh'^n, in consequence of the increasing infirmities of age, he was 
imder the necessity of retiring. He continued, however, to 
preach occasionally, until he entered into his Master's joy. 

4. Isaac Bkown, a native of Hawkesworih, near Otley, who 
was a faithful lalK)urer in our I^ord^s vineyard for the space of 4S 
years. He began his itinerant career in the year 1760, and in 
1 803 was forced by increasing infirmities to desist. I Ic settled 



1815.] ( 91 ) 

in PoDleliBet, where he preached occasionally, and ai his 
Mmglh would allow. He was well knowp and greatly beloved 
liy our Teneroble father, Mr. John Wesley ; who, when he had 
•cewon to moition Iiim, u»d to say, " Honest Uaac Brown." 
AcUld-like ianoceDcy appeared in his spirit, and his whole de* 
{KKtinent was such as becometh the Gospel of Christ. He la- 
Inred hard and lonp, and his work is with the Lord, who did 
not sufier him to spend his strenftth for nouf^ht. His death woa 
a tree comment on those words of the Psalmist, " Mark the 
jaatett man, and behold the upright ; for the end of that man 
H peace." 

£. Joseph Dbake. Hr commenced his iLinerant labours in 
Aeycar 1794. His piety was genuine, and his ministerial talents 
acceptable. The Church of God has been deprived of the ser- 
vices «f this excellent man at an unexpected moment. He came 
to this Conference, apparently in f;ood health : oo Friday, the 
llth nf August, he felt himself indisposed, returned the next 
dn to Blackburn, and expired happy in God on the Wednesday 
fidjitwin^- in the 63d year of his age, and the 21st of bis Itine- 
lancy. 

Gif S. Are there any objections to any of our Brethren ? 

^, They were examined one by one. 

Q. 6, Who have desisted from travelling? 

A. 1. John \A'. Green j and in Ireland, James M'Quim;e. 

3. Charlt's Burton, Thomas Jackson, jun. William CaXUm^ 
John Rutledge, John Milne, and John Jones ; who have volmu 
tarily left the Work. 

3. Peler Le Sueur ; who had been employed as a French 
Uiskionary, hut has sent in hid resignation. 

4. F. C. Reed, Peter White, anaUichard Afartin ; who retire 
Em* want of health. 

Q, 7. How are our Preachers stationed this year?

Q. 15. What directions are necessary with respect to our 
Coimegational Singing. 

JL \. Let no singing he allowed in any of our chapels, after 
die public service nas been regularly closed by the Officiating 
Preacher; as we think that singing, at such times, tends to ex- 
tinguish the spirit of devotion, and to destroy those serious im- 
pieKions which may have been made on the congregations by the 
pmoot Ministry of God*s Word. 

2. Let our Rule^ respecting Singing, and especially those 
which restrict the useof Instrumental Music in our public worship, 
is published in our Minutes for the year 1805, be uniformly 
enforced. 

3. Let the excellent Paper, inserted by Mr. Wesley, iu ihft 
Arminian Magazine for 1 781, and entitled, ^^ TViou^VvVft on \V\it 



r^ 



( 122 ) [Uli. 

Power of Music,*' be immediately reprinted in the Magaaiie^ 
nnd also published in a separate' form, that copies may be seht.lo 
every cii ciiit. And let the Preachers promote, as much as pp&ili|i^ 
tiie restoration (in our Public Singing) of the style of Mijific 
which that Paper recommends, and which isexemphfied ip niiii^ 
of our bent and oldest Tunes. 

4. Let nur Preachers tike care to examine the Hymns which 
are to be »ung in otir chapels, when Charity Sermons are to ibe ) 
preacliod, or on other particular occasions; and let them rejectall 
those which are not decidedly unobjectionable in pcnut of senti> . 
ment and of poetry; nnd we earnehtly recommend that onrovji 
authorised Hymns be generally preferred for ail such purposei; 

Q. 16. AVhat further Ke^ulation is expedient with respect to 
Our Public WorMiip? 

//. 1. The foilowinfr Ariicles in the Plan of Pacification, 
adopted in the year i7f)j, ^hnll be re-published in our MihuU»; 
and the Preachers are desired to remember that they arc. sun j|uf 
Ruie> of the Ctmuexion: viz. 

^* The Lord's Supper sliall be always administered in Epglapdi 
according; to the form of the K>tabli.4icd Church ; but the perfoi 
who a^iurmisteri ^hall have full iibcrty to give out hymns, aDdM: 
use exhnrtations and extemporary prayer. 

" Wherever Divine & TV ice is periormcd in England, on the 
Lord's Day, in Church Ilours^ the Officiating Preacher shall rei4 
either the service of the Established Church, our venrraine 
Father's Abridgement, or at least the Lessons appointed by the 
Calendar; but we recommend eitiier the full Service or ^he 
Abridgment. 

2. With a view to the full execution of these Rules, and ia< 
order to meet the case of those of our Societies, at home ^iidf 
abroad, who in accordance with the recommendation of the Con- 
ference, make use of Mr. Wesley's Abridgment of the Liturgy,, 
our Book-Committee shall, without loss of time, pubh'sh and 
advertise a new edition of the (^aid Abridgment, both in t^e 
duodecimo size for individual accommodation, and in the,nu8rto 
size lobe usod in the Pulpits, 

Q. 17. Can any sidditional methods be devised, in order to 
promote the menial improvement of our Preachers? 

A. 1. The Chairman of Districts shall, at each District- 
Meeting, examine every PreiichtT on Trial, respecting the couriC 
of theological reading which he may have pursued in the course 
of the preceding year. For this purpose, every such Preacheir. is 
required to deliver to the Chairman of his Di>trict, a list of the 
Boioks which he has read since the preceding District -Meeting- 
These lists shall be laid before the Meeting, that the senior 
Brethren may h:ive an opportunity of giving to the junior 
Preachers, such advices and directions respecting their stuiiies as 
may appear to be necessary. 



'S15.] ( 123 ) 

h Before any I^eachor, liaving travelled four yenrs, ir recom- 
Dcled by his District- Meeting, for ndniission into fnll con- 
Jon, he shall undergo a careful examination, by the Chair- 
1 of that M'X'ling, respecting his acquahnance with Mr. 
filcy's Works in general, and ej-pcciaily with his Sermons, 
his Notes on the New Tesi anient, in addition to ihe othtnr 
r;«;«a/i^M required by on r exiy»ting linle?: and no Preacher 
I be so recommended, unless the re.>u!t of his Examination 
atisfactory to the Meeiintr. 

. Those Preachers on trial, wlio do not already possess Mr. 
sley's Works, are required to procure tliem, during the 
od of their probation ; and shnll be allowed to pny ibr them 
iir Book- Steward, if they des^ire it, by such instalments as 
best suit their convenience. 

We recommend to all bur Preachers, Mr. Benson's Com-

n ceive their sanction. They shall next be submitted, after 
cases of Superannuated and Supernumerary Prt*achers, and 
B of the widows and children of deceased Preachers have 
I considered, to the investigation of the Committee of Eleven^ 
en, according to law, at every Conference. Tlie decision of 
Committee, if approved of by the Conference, shall be

nary aud regular way, by the exertions of the Circuits in whidh. .^ 
those Preachers labour. The District- Meetings, and the C oi l ;j 
mittee of Eleven, are required to pay particular attention to imtf^

tSiS.^ ( 127 ) 

A, In compliance with the pressing requests received from 
abroadi and in humble dependence on the blessings of God, and 
the continued exertions und liberality of our Friends, and of the 
Public, we authorize our Executive Committee to send out, as 
soon as convenient, 

Four additional Missionaries to the West- Indies, &r. 
Four ditto ditto to the British Provinces in 

North America; 
Two ditto ditto to Newfoundland ; and 

Six ditto ditto to Ceylon and the East. 

N. B. Several other proposals respecting the extension of our 
Missionary Efforts, which were laid before the Conference, are 
retcrre<l to the consideration and iliscretion of the Committee, 

Q. ^23. What is the judgment of the Conference res|)ecting 
that part of our work, which has been usually termed TJie 
Home^ Missions ? 

A. 1. The terms, Home- Missions and Home-Missionaries^ shall 
be disused. 

2. All the i'tations in England^ which have been called Home- 
Missions, shall from this time be considered, either as di>tinct 
and regular circuits, or us appended to the regular circuits to 
which they are contiguous. 

S. The Preachers emploj-ed in such stations, and heretofore 
considered as Home- Missionaries, shall be henceforth considered 
as additional Preachers, subject to the authority of the District- 
Meetings, and to every part of our discipline, like all other 
Preachers. 

4. Those expenses, connected with the employment of such 
Preachers, which cannot be raised among the people for whom 
they labour, or in the circuits to which they are attached, shall 
be first examined and approved by the Quarterly- Meetings, and 
then allowed by the District- Meetings, to he paid out of the 
Yearly Collection, according to the same rules which direct the 
payment of all other ordinary and extraordinary deficiencies in 
the circuits. 

5. In order to provide for the expenses which may be incurred 
by the enifiloyment of additional Preachers, for the purpose of 
carrying the (lospil and its ordinances into those parts of our 
own country which are in a greatdcgreedestituteofthr ordinary 
means of religious iustruclion, — cis well as to prevent, if possible, 
the nece^sity of future Extraordinary Collections, by making the 
yearly Income of the Contingent Fund more equal to the average 
amount of the demands upon it, — an Annual Public Collection, 
for the Support and Spread of the Gospel at home, shall he 
made in all our congregations throughout the kingdom, in the 
early part of the month of July ; which shall be brought to the 



( 1S8 ) • [1815. 

I 

ensuing Confereooe^ and applied in 'aid of theTdd-estobliahed 
Yearly Collection, which is made privately in the Closiesi* 

6. An Address to our Congregations, on the design and ne^ 
cessity of this Collection, shoN be prepared; copies of which 
shall be sent to every Circuit, for the guidance of the Preachers 
who may be employed in midcing it. 

Q. 24. What regulation is necessary, respecting Public Collec- 
tions? 

A. We direct our Superintendants to be punctual in making 
the General Collections, which are requisite for the support of 
the work at large, at those times of the year at which they are 
regularly appointed to be made; and we intreat our Friends so 
to arrange the times of their various Local Collections, as not to 
interfere with measures which are essential to the very existence 
of Methodism. 

N. B. I. The regular times of our general Congregational 
Collections are as follow : viz. 

(1.) The Public Collection for Kingswood and Woodhouse^ 

Grove Schools, and for the Education of the Preachers' 

Children, generally, is to be made in the month of 

October. 

(2.) The Collections allowed for Chapels in cases of distresi, 

are to be made in January or February at latest. 
(S.) The Public Collection for Missions is to be made in 
May; except in places where a Collection has been 
made for that pnrpose at Missionary Meetings or by 
means of Missionary Societies; in which cases the 
Public Collection may be omitted.

Fund, for the support and spread of the Gospel at 
home, is to be made in July. 
II. The Private Collections for the General Purposes of the 
Connexion are also to be made as asUal : vie. 

(i.) Private Subscriptions for the Schools, &c. are to be so- 
licited from our private Members, Hearers, and Friends, 
in every Circuit^ in the month of October, previously 
to the making of the Public Collection for the same 
purpose. 
(2.) The Private Yearly Subscription in the Classes, for 
the support oF the work at home, is to be proposed at 
the time of the March Visitation, and the sums contri- 
buted are to be collected as soon as convenient, and 
brought to the District Meetings. 
(S.) The rrivate Snb»criptions for the Preachers' Anxiliary 
Fund, are to be collected as soon as possible after Mii* 
summer. 
O. 2S. What steps can be taken in order to prevent an increase 
of the general debt of the Connection ? 



1815.] ^,( 129 ) 

Am 1. On jOODtideriog the present embarrassed state of our 
finanoesi and the absolute necessity of economical arrsn^ements, 
va aDlemnljaiid unanimoualy agree, That the number of rreachers 
to be enployed in the Connection at kome^ shall not at the next 
Conference be allowed, on any account whatever, to exceed on 
the whoie^ the number of Preachers stationed at the present Con* 
ference. If additional Preachers shall appear to be urgently 
wanted in some particular circuits, such wants shall, for that 
tiBM, be supplied b^ withdrawing Preachers from those circuits 
in which the necessity for their labours is of a less pressing na-* 
ture, or in which the success of past exertions has been compara- 
small and inconsiderable. 

S. We again most earnesly advise and exhort our friends to 
uae the utmost caution with respect to the erection of new cha- 
pela;— to remember especially Mr. Wesley's advice, ** Beware of 
building expensive chapels ;" — and not to engage in any snch 
nadertaking, in the present state of our affairs, without a moral 
certainty that the income from seat-rents, together with the sub- 
scriptions that may be raised in the circuit to which the new 
chapel ia to belooff, will be such as to prevent fatnre emborrass- 
menty. and meet all the additional eicpenses of every sort, without 
that help from other parts of the Connexion wUch it is now 
fband so very difficult to obtain. And we call the attention of 
of oar Preachers and Societies to the following Minute of the 
year ISIS; viz. *^ Our friends who mav contemplate in future 
the erectkm of new diapelf^ are earnestly entreated to inquire, 
before any decisive step be taken, whether, by the building of 
such diapel, an additional travelling Preacher will not be ren- 
dcsed necessary ; and whether, in tnat case, they can support 
Um ont of the funds of the chapel, or of their own circuit." 

d. It ia agreed. That all chums on the Contingent Fund for 
traveilioff expenses, shall firat pass through a Quarterly Meeting, 
and: be sigDad by the Circuit Steward, as approved, before they 
are proposed to the District Meeting or to the Conference. 

Q, 96. Can any amendment be made in the existing rule eon- 
oemmg letters sent to our public schools? 

Am la future, the Preachers who write to the Governors or t(y 
the boys^ shall either send their letters post-paid^ or refund the 
amount of the Postage to the Governors at the ensuing Con- 
Kfiance.

Miscellaneous Orders and ResoUitions of the Conference. 

1. No motion shall be discussed, at any future Conference, 
proposing a new rule that would affect our Connexion in general, 
unless notice be given of such motion at least on the day before 
it is brought forward. 

2. The cordial and unanimous thanks of the Conference are 
given to the Rev. J. M. Bl£T«o£, M. A. for his valuable and 
gratuitous services as Head Master of the School at Woodhouse- 
Grove ; and he is requested to accept from the Conference, as a 
token of their respect, a set of Mr. Wesley's Works, elegantly 
bound, which our Book Steward is hereby directed to transmit. 

S. The Superlntendants of Circuits are directed to explain to 
those Quarterly Meetings, which shall request 1^ the reasons 
which induced the Conference of last year to pass the resolution, 
by which, in conformity to a practice which had been previously 
aud voluntarily introduced by our frienda.in several circuits, the 
Preachers are permitted, in certain cases which that resolution 
describes, to receive a small allowance for their children until 
the age of twenty years: but- though, the Conference fiilly d^ 
pends on the conviction, which such explanations will produoei 
of the equity and necessity of itbat particular measure, they are 
desirous to guard against all. reasonable ground of complaint, 
and to secure the perfect confidence of their societies ; and have 
therefore resolved as follows : viz. That, in future^ no new pro- 
posal, which is designed to effect a general augmentation of the 
income of tlie Preachers, in the Connexion at large, shall be 
definitively adopted as a rule, until it shall have received the 
assent of a majority of the District Meetings throughout the 
kingdom, at the time when the financial affairs of the Districts 
are transacted ; during whicli time, according to an existing 
n«le^ the Circuit Stewards of every circuit in each District are 
to \ye invited to attend the District Meeting, and shall have a 
right to vote on every such proposal respecting any general in- 
crease of allowances.

The Address of the Irish Conference to the British 

Conference. 

Dear Fathers and Brethren^ 

GRACE be unto you, and peace from God our Father, and 
from the Lord Jesus Christ. According to our annu»l usage, we 
address you, and feel assured of that mutual lave — which is by 
Him— ^^ from whom the whole body fitly joined together, and 
compacted by that which every joint supplietb, according to the 
effectual working, in the measure of every part, maketh increase 
ol[ the body.* 

Your address wc received as a pledge of your aflection for, and 
confidence in us ; and we rejoice to feel, that with you, God hath 
given unto us an understanding of the IVuth which is according 
to his will, and by which Ti-^Uh we are saved. Through grace, 
by the unfeigned faith of the Gospel, we have been raised up to- 
gether, and have been made to sit together in heavenly places in 
Christ Jesus ; and have seen and felt the exceeding riches of his 
grace and his kindness towards us." When our merciful Lord 
visited this island by the Messrs. Wesleys, and the first Methodist 
Preachers, our fathers were instructed in the Truth as it is in 
Jesus; they saw themselves lost, guiliy, and undone sinners by 
nature and practice ; they, by sincere repentance and lively faith, 
were led to the all-sufficiency of the Atonement by the blood of our 
Lord God and Saviour ; they rejoiced in ihe full assurance of their 
adoption, and cleansed themselves — perfecting holiness in the lear 
of the Lord :^-in this same faith hnve wc been instructed, and 
being comforted by its experimental power in our own hearts, we 
have testified the grace of (Jod, and have laboured and continued 
unto this day. Since the beginning of this blessed work, almost 

12 



( 1S2 ) [1815. 

every year has been marked with lome aigatX token of .dimie 
favour, aod the word of the hord haa been gnatly mul^pVed 
among us : and it is matter of thanksgiving that the last vear alio 
has been favoured with *^ times of refreShing coming nam the 
presence of the Lord." In several Circuits there has been a 
great enlargement of our Zion, and though from various circum« 
stances, our increase does not appear, yet we have seen many 
turned ^* from darkness to light, and firom the power of Satan 
unto God.'' 

The Irish Missions still continue to bless oar land ; — sevend of 
the Ouholics have, during the last year, been enlightened and 
turned to God, and not a few of the careless Protestants bron|^ 
to that knowledge of God, in which standeth eternal life. 

The opening prospects of the Eastern Bfission to Ceylon, &e» 
aflbrd to us a pleasing hope of future laboor and success; and 
though we deeply deplore^ (as indeed must all the lovers of Mis- 
sionary labours,) the untimely removal of our l^ighly*venerated 
friend and brother. Dr. Coke, — ^yet we have learned not only to 
adore the inscrutable dispensations of God, but also that, rIE 
who rules over all things in the heavens and in the earth, in tt»>- 
dom and love^ hath the means of accomplishing all good fiiA— to 
all his creatures, in his own hands. 

Our pecuniary embarrassments, and many other weighty rab- 
jects which have come before our Conference, have not only pro- 
longed our sitting, but have seriously and deeply exercisra our 
minds ; but by an humble looking to God, and we trust a tender* 
and faithful attention to the interest of our connexion on thia 
side of the water, we have been led to the most amicable meant of 
adjustment. Our little bark has been often tossed upon a tein- 
pestuous sea ; but He whose wisdom guides the helm, nas hitherto 
saved us from being shipwrecked; and to his guidance we itiU 
look, that we may find the /ioven of peace* 

These eventful times among the nations are strongly marked 
by the Divine interference ; and whilst we learn to adore the 
deep and unsearchable councils of God, we feel gratitude to Him 
who6e-*is the victory^ and the glory ^ and the kingdom^ finr ever I 

Your very judicious choice of our President as afibrded an 
unspeakable satisfaction ; and while we express our gratitude for 
the appointment of our esteemed aud much-loved BroUier GriiBtbf 
we are still disposed to leave to your wisdom the choice of the 
President of our next Conference; and so much the more fireely^ 
because we have found your choice of our Presidents from time 
to time, most perfectly correspond with our best wishes, and 
tending to strengthen the bonds of bi'otherhood between the two 
countries. 

We send as our Representative to your Conference onr beloved 
Brother, Matthew Tobias ; and we commend him and yoo^ dear

from the Irish Cohfrremce. 

MJiOT JJT€tarC99f 

CASTING oar regards on the religions world, to trace the 
counsel and gkiry of God in his sanctuary, we rejoice to obsenre, 
that the general character of Christianity, in the present age^ is 
stronffly marked by *^ good will to men." The diffusion of the 
sacred Scriptures in e?ary language ; Missionary efforts to instruct 
the heathen ; evangelical preaching at home ; gratituitous in- 
stmetion of diildren ; and benevolence to the poor in every form ; 
attract an union of heart, and rivaUhip of exertion among all 
good men. In all these pious efforts, the Methodists, according 
to the utmost of their power, have been among the most dis- 
tinguished, and often so far talcen the lead, that our Christian 
brethren Another denominations, have been excited to emulation, 
and have adcqpted our plans. 

With regard to the work of God, on this side the water, we 
are happy to add, that we have cause of continued ioy. Our 
faicrMse ef numbers during the past year, has been about eight 
thousand. Conversions among us are very frequent; and 
wherever a chapel has been erect^, with few exceptioas, a greater 
or a less revival of religion has ensued. ^So circumstanced, our 
adnistiy dailv becomes a charge more weighty and impressive to 
ooraelves. We have sinners to address more enlightened with 
knowledge than in former years^ and on whose minds divine 
truths can produce little effect unless accompanied with the pe* 
collar power of God. We have a vast body of believers to in- 
fltmet and edi^, who are very much exposed to the temptationa 
of the age. We find it necessary to urge them to go back to the 
New Testament, and to die early writings of Methodism for 
OMidels of purity, of self-denial, and of entire devotedness to 
God) that we may bear our trials with Christian temper, and 
ch eer f ully embrace the will of our heavenly Father. 

With rq^ard to Missionary labours, it is pleasing to say, that 
heaven has cast a gracious smile on all our work. Some defects 
of discii^ine in the West Indies have been surmounted, and the 
islands bqrin to assume the form of English circuits. In Nova 
Scotia, ki riewfoundland, and the adjacent Isles^ the mhabitants 

IS

evince great afTcction for the Missionaries, and continue to co)icit 
a greater portion of their Iabour8«-r-In Ceylon, that Divine irt* 
Hiif'nce which prompted the late Rev. Dr. Coke to sail for the 
Eai^t, and the Conference to second his views, has disposed all 
ranks of men to receive the Missionaries with the utmost kindness 
und aflVction. Tlie general cry in the breasts of all good men is, 
'^ Come over and help us." W^ are about so far to comply with 
their requests, as to send over six additional labourers. The 
priest of the Budhu Temple, whose .conversion gave us so much 
joy, continues steadfast in his views, and assiduous in labours. 
He has sent us over about five hundred verses cf a new trana- 
lationof the Sacred Scriptures into the Cingalese dialect, written 
on the palmetto leaf, accompanied with a grateful address. The 
execution obviously indicates the author to be a man of letten, 
and of great hope to the work in the Eaf^t 

With regard to the expenses of Missions so extensive, the 
Great Author of the work seems to have become responsible for 
the demands. He has whispered in the hearts of his children,— 
^*' The gold is mine^ and the silver is mine^ saith the Lord/'— 
Feeling the impulse, they have formed themselves into Missionary 
Associations in all parts of England, and come forward with a 
liberality highly pleasing. 

Labouring therefore together in a work so glorious, we cor- 
dially enter into all your views of unity and love between the 
brethren of both countries. It mutually strengthens our hands, 
and exhibits a Christian temper calculated to recommend religion 
to the world. Your gratitude for the light and help which your 
fathers received from the first Methodists Preachers that visited 
Ireland, indicates your high sense of the value of the Gospel, 
and expresses a sentiment truly Christian. We rejoice that yon 
hold fast tliose truths, and cherish piety with constant care, We 
rejoice not less to hear tliat sinners have been converted, whether 
Catholic or Protestant in exterior name. But with regard to sin- 
ners converted from theCatholics, we have generally found them to 
be persons of good understanding, and sound religion; formal of 
less firm principle have seldom resolution to make the sacrifices 
and endure the reproaches, to which such persons, on joining 
with us become exposed. Wc exhort, and encourage you, 
brethren, to persevere in every good effort, that your ministry 
may ever be a transcript of all that ought to 'pass between God 
and your hearers, and that you may continue to win over a mul- 
tituae of sinners to the Lord. 

Brother Tobias, your Representative, has in all things been 
attentive to your business, and rendered himself agreeable to us, 
by communicating all the requisite information respecting the 
affairs of Ireland.

Signed on behalf of the Conference, assembled at

JABEZ BUNTING, Secretary. 

The following Address, voted by the Conference^ held in

I the Rev. Dr. Adam Clarke, 
Harpur Street. 

rhe next day, Saturday, September 10, the Address, as 
iow, was printed, the first article in the Gazette. 

le Adddess of the Mgthodist Conference to tlie PaiNCE 

Recent. 
I His Royal Highness George, Prince of Wales, Regent of 
the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. 

The humble Address of the Ministers of the People called 
Methodists, l>elonging to the Religious Societies, first 
established by the Rev. John Wesley, deceased. 
May it please your Royal Highness^ 
HTE, His Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Mi- 
ten of the People called Methodists, belonging to the Religious 
eietiet first established by the Rev. John Wesley, deceased, 
[ leave most humbly to approach your Royal Highness, and 
ofiisr to YOU our heartfelt congratulations on the happy termi- 
ioaofthe late sanguinary and protracted war, and on the 
toration of peace, among the various nations which compose 
I great European family. 



( 1S6 ) L1B15. 

In the astoni^irig events which have led to these ampkioui 
results, we devoutly recognise the s&pcctal agency of that Almigh^ 
Jking, who doeth according to his will, in the army of heaveii 
and among the inhabitants of the earth : all whoae works an 
truth, and his ways judgment, and who in the recent dispefr 
sations of His Providence, has made it signally manifest, thai 
those who walk in pride He is able to abase. 

We gladly avail ourselves of this opportunity to assure yon 
Royal Highness, that both we and the nurocroas societies irooa 
we represent, are firmly and unalterably attached to thcexoaiki 
Constitution of our Country ; and that its scntimenta of mos 
loyal and affectionate reelect for the Person, the Family, andth 
Government of our venerable Sovereign, we are not behmd an] 
other class of his Majesty's subjects. Tiis long affliction we bati 
sincerely lamented ; and for his present and eternal welfiire wi 
incessantly pray. For your Royal Highness also, we ofier iq 
to God our continual supplications, that his best blessings m^ 
rest on yourself and on your Rq(i;ency ; that you may be hi 
minister for good to this nation and to mankind; and that aftfl 
having long Uved at the head of a free, faithful, and prosperoa 
people, you may finally receive a crown of righteousness, wbid 
fadeth not away. 

With our prayers, we shall not fail to continue, as we ham 
ever done, our strenuous exhortations to the people of our charge 
that they may be taught, both by our precepts and example 
while they fear God, to honour the King, and to adorn our hoi] 
religion by an uniformly peaceable demeanour, and by a cheertt 
subjection to lawful authority. 

In these principles of Christian loyalty, we were, as a religiott 
body, carefully instructed by tlie Founder of our Societies — thej 
are embodied in our standing rules of discipline, and wcare OOS' 
firmed in our adherence to them, by our thankfiil recollection of die 
privileges which we enjoy. Those privileges we consider as greatlj 
enlar£;ed and secured, by a recent statute^ entitled, *^ An Act tt 
repeal certain Acts, and amend other Acts, relating to religiov 
M*orship and assemblies, and persons teachingorpreechingtherein.' 
For this extension and establishment of religious liberty, we an 
solicitious to express our warmest gratitude to your Royal Hu^ 
ness, under whose councils the measure was introduced into Par 
1 lament, and unanimously passed into a law. And while we an 
thus acknowledging our own obligations, we cannot omit toiadveit 
with similar feelings of respectful and grateful satisfaction, toth 
legal facilities which are now aflbrded to pious persons of al 
denominations, for the peaceable diffusion of the manifold blessing 
of Chriiitianity, in those populous countries which compose th 
Briiiih Empire in India. 

We cannot, however, conceal from your Royal Highness, thi 



I 



%^ 

1815-3 ( 1S7 ) 

amidst the many oocasions of congratulation and thankfulness 
which lale events have prodooed, there is one subject, which, as 
men, as Christian^ and as Ministers of the Gospel of Peace, we 
can oonteoiplate with no otlier emotions than those of the deepest 
reeret.^ We refer to that article of the treaty with France, from 
which it appean^ that the influence of your Royal Highness has 
not obtained, as yet, the consent of the French Oovemment, to 
abandon their purpose of reviving the Slave Trade. 

The renevw of that detestable traffic, under any modifications, 
or fiir any period, however limited, we most earnestly deprecate 
as a calamity of incalculable ;magnitude. The miseries in which 
it will involve thousands of our unoffending fellow- creatures, we 
regard as constituting but a part of the miMhief with which it is 
pregnant; it will operate most injuriously, if not fatally, on those 
benevolent plans which have been formed, and partially executed, 
for civiiixing and Christianizing the inhabitants of the African 
Continent. 

In some of those plans, the religious community to which we 
beloDjg are peculiarly interested, having for some years estab* 
lisliea schools on the western coast of Africa, for the education 
of negro children, with encouraging appearances of ultimate 
success. On this ground, therefore, as well as on general prin* 
ciplesof humanity, justice, and religion; and because we wish to 
see our own country at least fully rescued from the guilt of inno- ' 
cent Uood, by the exertion of its utmost influence on this question, 
we are anxious that the question should undergo such further 
discussion, in the approaching Congress at Vienna, as may lead, 
we hnmbly trust, to that great consuoimation, the immediate^ 
the univet^al, the uuqualified abolition of the Slave Trade. 

Impressed with these feelings, we have read with no common 
satisfaction, the answer of your Royal Highness to the unanimous 
addresses of the two Houses of Parliament on this smbject, in 
which yon were graciously pleased to intimate^ that your unre- 
mitting exertions will be used to give effect to their wishes for tho 
abolition of this trade. 

Accept, Sir, of our most hearty thanks for this declaration, 
worthy of a British Prince. And may Almighty God crown 
your renewed exertions in a cause so holy, with complete success ! ^ 
May it be your high honour, and that of the nation over which 
yon rule^ to be recorded in the pa^e of history, as the principal 
' instrumeuts employed by Divine Providence, first in restoring 
liberty and peace to Europe, and then in terminating for ever, 
the wrongs and the desolations of Africa. 

Signed, by order and in behalf of (he Methodist Ministers, 
assembled at their seventy-first Annual Conference, 

Adam Clarke, President.

prayer in his last illness, iliai Ike struggle mighibeskortf'wBM gi»

had great peace and ji»y in the Cjod of his salvation. 

4. George Suadforo. He died at Frome on the 11th of 
March, 1816, in the 78th year of his age. In 1768 he com- 
mtnced his itinerant labours. Early in the spring of 1775, he 
set sdil for America as a Missionary, where he staid about four 
year.s and then returned to England ; where he continued to 
labour, till, by age and infirmities, he was forced to become a 
supernumerary in 1791. When retired from public service in 
the church, he evinced the same unabated love to the souls of 
men, and desire for the prosperity of vital godliness, which he had 
exemplified in the vigour of his health. He outlived neither his 
piety nor his usefulness. His beneficence to the poor was limited 
only by his pecuniary income. For fifty-four years he had en- 
joyed a sense of the divine favour; and had long lived in the 
possession of that love which excludes all slavish fear. A little 
l)efore his death, he was asked, whether all was clear before him; 
to which he replied, with great feeling, ^< I bless God, it is:*' 
and added, ^< Victory, victory, through the blood of the LambP 
As a t^ken of respect to his brethren, he has left a hundred 
pounds to the Preachers* Fund, to be paid at the death of his 
widow. 

5. JoHW Crosby, a native of Whitby, in Yorkshire. He was 
brought to a saving knowledge of God when about the age of 
twenty-one years, by the ministry of an evangelical clergynuuBi 
at Pickering. In the year 17S9 he began his itinerant labours, 
and travelled twenty-eight years with an unblamable anil pious 
character. His preaching was close, practical, experimental, 
and to the use of edifying. Integrity, mei^kness, and pure hu- 
mility, adorned his conduct through the whole of his Christian 
warfare. Four years and a half he was a Supernumerary ; 
during which time he was called to sufTer many and severe afflic- 
tions, which he bore with uninterrupted patience and resignation 
to the will of God. In the Affliction which closed his earthly 
career, his spiritual joys often abounded. Some of his last 
words were, ^* I am very hnppy, and nm only sorry I have not 
streuizth to tell you what I feel ; but I have now got all I ever 
wished for, — vicl(»ry» victory, at the la?st !" He died at Bolton, 
on the 29th of Mtirch, I8I61 in the 6*2(1 year of his age. 

6. John Bakblk. He was born in the npi><h hour hood cf 
Hayfii'ld, in Deri y^hire. Wh(n about twenty-two years of age, 
he was soundly converted to God ; and from the time of his 
conversion, liecaine a truly decided character. Soon after he 
hati reciived tiit; mercy of Go i, he was callrd to publish it to

1816.1 ( 195 ) 

Telling Preacher for thirty- five years. The esteem in which Mr. 
Barber was held by his brethren in (he ministry, is proved by 
their making choice of him twice as the President of their Con- 
fcrenco. He was the first President who died during the year 
of his Presidency. 

As a mauy a Christian, and a Christian Minister, peculiar 
comprehension of mind, and inflexible firmness of character, 
distinguished every part of hin conduct. Next to his concern 
ibr personal salvntion, his regard for the work of God in gene- 
ral, and especially for that part of it which is carrying on among 
the Methodists, was constantly evinced. For this he laboured, 
aad for this he lived. IJc was a man of prnytf. His preaching 
WIS blessed to thousands in various parts of Great Britain, par- 
tiralarly on the subject of Christian holiness. Strong attach- 
aienc to every part of discipline in the Methodist Societies, ren- 
dered him greatly useful in many places ; and while he breathed 
Christian kindness to all who love the Lord Josuh Christ in sin* 
oerity, his whole religious and ministerial life was emf)l(iyrd in 
forring his generation among the people with whom God had 
called him. As a Christian friend snd fellow-labourer, the 
memory of John BARBEa is dear to many, who have experi- 
enced in him tiie sympathy of' a brother, and the tenderness of 
a fiufaer. The last year of his life was peculiarly comfortable 
and usefal ; his deatli was sudden, but peaceful and happy. 
He entered into rest on Sunday, April 28, 1816, in the 59th 
year of his age. 

7. DuMCAM Kay. He was a native of Scotland. In early 
life he was brought to the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour 
Jems Christ ; and l)ecame a Local Preacher, and continued to 
act in that capacity about thirty-eight years. Having been 
strongly recommended to Mr. Wesley in the year 1786, he was 
appointed as a I'ravclling Preacher, and laboured in the various 
dudes of that office fourteen years. During the last twelve years 
of his life, he was never able to (lo out of his house, but gra- 
dnally sunk to the ^^rave. On Friday, May 10, he was taken 
to his eternal joy, in the 88th year of his age. He was plain^ 
upright, and pious, and an acceptable and useful Preacher. 

8. George Gibbon. He was born at Stockton-on-Tees, in 
the county of Durham, April ?, 1744'. He was converted to 
God when he was twenty years of age. In a short time he was 
persiuded that it was his duty to call sinners to repentance, and 
acted as a Local Preacher till the year 1780, when he was called 
out to travel. Since 1813, when he retired from his itinerant 
labours, he preached occrisionally, as his health and opportuni- 
tiea would permit. During his last illness, his mind was serene 
and comfortablti, and ahhough he did nut express any very ec« 
static raptures, he could snv, 

N2 



( 196 ) [1816. 

^ Not a cloud doth arue^ to darken the skiei^ 
Or hide for a moment my God from my eyes." 

9. Samuel Bradbukn. He was bom in the Bay of Gibraltar, 
and on the return of his parents to Great Britain, settled in 
Chester. When he was young, it pleased the Lord to convince 
him of the necessity of a change of heart, and of redemption 
through the blood of the everlasting covenant 

Having joined the Methodist Society, and his heart glowing 
with love to God, and with strong desire for the salvation of 
immortal souls, he was soon callea to preach the gospel of our 
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ; first as a Local Preacher in the 
year 1773, and then as an Itinerant in 1774. His Divine 
Master having endowed him with extraordinary gifls for the 
work of the ministry, he soon became remarkably popular, and 
it was frequently with pleasure that thousands listened to his 
discourses. 

His ministry was owned of God for the salvation of many, 
and, for several years, he was considered not only as one of the 
first preachers in the land, for all the higher powers of pcrsua- 
sive eloquence, but as a faithful labourer in the vineyard of the 
Lord. 

For a few of the last years of his life his strength and memory 
gradually failed him, but it was gratifying to his friends to ob- 
serve, that as he drew near to the eternal world, he became 
more spiritually minded and more truly and deeply serious. 
His peculiar vivacity of mind, which had frequently been a 
source of temfitation to him, was brought more fully under the 
controul of Divine grace. In the last letter which be ever wrote, 
he remarked, that though he was unable to preach, he fimnd 
that the Lord Jesus Christ was his all. 

For several months before his death, he was not able to preach 
at all ; and on Wednesday, July 24, was seized with a fit, which 
nearly deprived him of the power of spi^ech. He was conveyed 
to bed, where he lay, without being able to converse with his 
weeping family, till the Friday morning, when his soul entered^ 
we trust, the paradise of God. 

10, (Ireland.) Thomas Edwards. He travelled twenty yean 
in our Connexion. He was a man of great plainness and sim- 
plicity, of humility and zeal, of integrity and punctuality. He 
lived according to the Gospel which he preached, and died in 
the full assurance of that faith which he had long experienced. 
Some of his last words were, <* I have fought a good fi^ht, I 
have finished my course, I have kcp^ the faith ; — I am saved by 
grace."

Conference, who may die duriiijj; the year of his Presidency? 

yi. In every such case, the last auyviving President shall immer 
diately enter ngnin into the office so vacated ; and shall be con- 
sidered, for the remainder of that year, and until the election of 
a successor nt the eusuing Conference, as having all the powers, 
privileges, ^and authorities of the Presidency, and responsible for 
all its duties. 

Q. 24. How can we best discharge the present large Debt of 
t)ic Connexion* including the Monies borrowed and and left un- 
paid at the close of the last Conference, and also the Deficiency 
of the present year ? 

A. As we are exceedingly reluctant, in these times of general 
pressure and distress, to make JEmy new or special application to 
our People fcr this purpose, we agree, that we will take upon 
ourselves, as a Body of Travelling Preachers, the whole Debt; 
and have made such arrangements among ourselves, as will en-

able U8f we trust, to accomplish in one year the entire extinction 
of it, by voluntary sacrifices and exertions. Till these arrange- 
ments can be carried into effect, the sum wanted shall be bor* 
rowed on Interest, in order that the regular claims on the Con* 
tkiffent Fund may be immediately discharged. 

N. B. 1. The four General Congregational Collections are to 
be made as usual, during the ensuing year, and as nearly as pos- 
sible at the regular times specified in page 128 o( the Minutes of 
WIS; namely, The Collection for our Fublic Schools, and for 
the Ediieation of the Preachers' Children, should be made in 
October; — theCollection allowed for Distressed Chapels, according 
to the Lists inserted at page 225, &c of these Minutes, should be 
made in January or Februanj ; — the Missionary Collection (ex- 
cept in places where such a Collection is made at Annual Mis- 
flionarjr Meetings,) should be made in May, and sent to the 
General Treasurers for the Missions, in time to be included ia 
dlieir Annual Account, which will close on the 24th of June^ 
1817: — and the Public Collection in aid of the Contingent Fund, 
for the Support and Spread of the Gospel at Home, should be 
made in the beginning of Juty^ that the amount of what is raised 
in each Circuit may be certified to the Representatives of the 
several Districts, and by them communicatca to the Clerks, in 
the week preceding the Meeting of the next Conference. 

S. The three General Private Subscriptions are also to be 
made as usual, in every circuit. See Minutes of 1815, p. 128.

The ApDRESs of the Irish Conference to the British 

Conference. 

Beloved Fathers and Brethren, 

With heartfelt satisfaction wc embrace the occasion presented 
by the lapse of another year, to renew our mutual interchange 
of cordial rcgardj and strengthen the hands of brotherly afFcc- 
tioD. 

We rejoice that our union with you is in Him who is the 
centre of spirits, and the head of all his myntical members; in 
whom we are one in interest and affection, and from whom we 
derive light, strength, and consolation. 

Qu the sudden death of our respected brother, Mn Barber, 
who was appointeil to be our President, we participated with 
you in feelings of deep regret. The loss of such an excellent 
minister of Christ, and the solemn lesson, so forcibly taught, 
that we are momentarily liable to be called to our final account, 
produced in our minds, we trust, their proper efTect. Besides, 
we entertained fears lest we should be deprived of a President 
from England ; but these fears were soon dissipated, when we 
learned that the late President had appointed Dr. Clarke, 
whom we cordially love, to preside among us ; and that the kind 
and prompt exertions of some of your respected body induced 
him to come. We entertain such a grateful sense of the lively 
interest which these Brethren took in our favour, that by an 
unanimous vote of Conference we return them our benrty thanks. 

With deep concern we have to deplore our want of usual suc- 
cess. This we believe must be principally attributed to the un- 
easy state of the minds of our people, occasioned by their dif- 
ferent views respecting the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord*s 
Supper being administered by our own Preachers. This ques- 
tion has occupied the minds of our people, and of numbers that 
attend on our ministry. They have debated the matter at large, 
and sometimes with too much warmth ; feelings unfavourable to 
religion have been excited ; the minds of many have been dis- 
tracted with controversy ; and we fear the ISpirit of God lias 
been grieved. Mean time, we have to sustain considerable 
pecuniary embarrassment. 

From the united influence of these two powerful causes, we 
should probably yield to depression, did we not call to recollec- 
tion the far greater diilicuiiles through which the primitive 
Apostles of Christ urjt^ed their way; the privations sustained, 
and hindrances overcome, by our immediate forerunners in this 
glorious work ; and, above all, that cheerin^* promise, " Lo I am 
with you aJway, even to tlie end of the world." Strengthened 



( ^36 ) [1S1«. 

tliiis, we *< thank God and take courage :** saying each, with 
hurable -confidence, *** Thou shalt guide me whii thy eoanael^ 
and afterward receive me to glory.*' 

To atlay the fever throughout the Connexion in Ireland, amt 
as far as oossible to meet the views of all united with us, we have 
granted toe sacred ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper 
to our people ; but accompanied with such limitations and re- 
strictions, as we trust will satisfy all reasonable men. Thus have 
we endeavoured to direct our bark through this narrow, this 
dangerous strait ; alarmecl, as well we might i>6, for its safety, 
but for this ooncoling reflection, that Jesus «its at the helm. 

Besides, we indulge the hope of future success from the union 
of all our Brethren in the ministry : we are all of one "heart and 
of one soul ; and that which threatened to divide us, has, through 
the providence of him, who ruleth all events tahis glory, contri- 
buted to cement us more closely together. 

Again we believe it wilt be our duty to testify our gratitude 
for the presidency of our beloved Brother, Dr. Clarke, from 
whose information and interest in our welfare, we have derived 
much advantage, and to whom we are deeply indebted. 

We find our Brethren on your side of the water so solicitous 
to fiend JUS a builable President, Chat we shall not dictate to you 
respecting the present appointment ; but assure you, that whom- 
soever yen filuiil think proper to send, we will dheerfully and 
cordially receive. 

We«end to you, asour Representative, our Brother Matme, 
who has prove<i himself faithful, and who will, wc believe, render 
Iiimself acceptable to you, by informing you of all things which 
concern our aflfairs. 

While we rejoice in the success of Missionary exertions abroad, 
it is still farther ground of gratitude, that our Missionaries have 
been blest in their labours at home. In the course of last year, 
new ground has been broken up, the word of God widely distri- 
buted, ihany sinners awakened, several blest with a sense of the 
Divine favour, and some who were the ripe fruit of the Mission, 
have scaped away to the mansions of light Thus encouraged, 
we have increased the number of Irish Missionaries, and look 
up with humble confidence, that God will bless their labours 
still more abundantly. 

In a sense, indeed, we are all Missionaries^ and our prayer 
is, that we may possess more of the true Missionary spirit, and 
that the kingdom of Christ may spread, till the whole earth is 
filled with his glory.

The Answer of the British Conference to the AmmESs 

from the Irish Conference* 

Dearly beloved BMhren^ 

Hating heard much of the peculiar circumstances of the Irish 
Methodists at the preseiU important crisis, we have waited with 
considerable anxiety for your annual Address; the reading of 
which has revived in our bosoms sentiments of sympathy and 
brotherly a&ction. 

The mturbed state of our Societies under your care, on the 
subject of the administration of the Ordinances of Baptism and 
the J^rd's Supper by our own Preachers, has, no doybt, greatly 
perplexed your minds. Concerned for the best interests of afl 
yoar people, whether they desire to receive the Sacraments from 
the hands of their own Preachers or not, we are persuaded you 
have adopted that plan, which has appeared to you, upon the 
whole, best calculated, evefitualltfj to restore and establish peace. 
We cannot, therefore, disapprove of the steps which you have 
taken in granting the requests of those Societies which desire to 
have the privileges of the Ordinances among themselves. And 
we perceive the propriety of such grants, especially as many of 
the members of the Societies were educated amongst the P^e^gr- 
terians, and had no opportunity of receiving the Liord's S^per, 
m many places, except from the hands of those who deny the 
atonement of our Saviour. We hope that those of our dear 
Brethren, who entertain other views on this subject, will kindly 
allow their Brethren who differ from them, to be thus gratified, 
especially as they think they can claim it as a Divine right. From 
experience we can say, that mutual forbearance on the matter in 
dispute, and that aloncy can preserve in ChristiniT unity a body 
of people, who have been so variously educated. We have reason 
to bless God, that on this subject dispuies have long since ceased 
in England. We have nothing now to occupy our minds, but 
the promotion of primitive Christianity, by inculcating evangelical 
doctrine, by the exercise of godly discipline, and by insisting on 
the necessity of sound Christian faith, and holy living; and we are 
happy to say, that pure and undefilcd religion never flourished 
more^ both among the Preachers and the people, than since we had 
these Ordinances among ourselves. To God be all the ^lory ! 
These things, we are informed, were distinctly stated to you by 
our respected Brother, Dr. Adam Clarke. 

Your complaint of want of success in your roinisteriai labours, 
in the past year, must be painful to your minds, and we have 
heard it with regret: however, your work is with the Lord, and 
your reward witn your God. You need not be discouraged, for 
he who is your Emploi/cr^ is also your Helper : and we trust, 



( M8 ) [1816; 

that with ttf, jou will be at once stimulated to redouble your 
efibrtSy and encouraged to believe, that your success in the en- 
suing year will be more abundant. JRemembery yoa are GotTs 
servants, and preach His truih. 

We rejoice to hear that your Missionaries have been favoured 
with success; and earnestly pray that those of your countrymen 
who are immersed in ignorance, superstition, and sin, may be 
called out of darkness into marvellous light. 

It is with the warmest gratitude to our common Lord, that we 
inform you, that in our extensive connexion in England, we 
enjoy perfect peace, and general prosperity: in almost every 
place where our Brethren have laboured, the *^ savour of the 
knowledge of Christ*" is spread abroad ; and the hope of more 
extensive usefulness in future is fully warranted by present ap- 
pearances. 

On the extraordinary success of our Foreign Missions, we 
need not say any thing, as the fame of it is spread abroad ; and 
every succeeding account from our Brethren affords us further 
matter of joy in the Lord. 

Death has been permitted, during this year, to remove from 
us several of our much esteemed and aged Brethren ; amonr^st 
wHoip is our respected late President, Mr. John Barber. Trie 
number, indeed, has not exceeded what might have been ex- 
pected according to the course of nature ; but there is one cir- 
cumstance, which ought not to be overlooked : their departure, 
though preceded by various infirmities, was in several cases, sud- 
den and unexpected. We regard these strokes as admonitory to 
us, and as loudly calling upon us to be watchful, faithful, and 
diligent, that whenever the Lord may call us, we may be found 
of him In peace, without spot and blameless. 

We ought not to conceal from you, that our Societies, which 
are most numerous in the populous manufacturing districts, feel, 
in common with others, tlie pressure of the times; which circum- 
stance has rendered it inconvenient to our people to increase their 
contributions towards the general expenditure of the Connexion 
according to their wishes. In consequence of this, we have 
cheerfully agreed to forego some of our usual claims, and to 
make such other pecuniary sacrifices and exertions among our- 
selves, as will for the present relieve our Connexion from its 
embarrassments. We are informed that you have made similar 
sacrifices ; and perhaps in worse circumstances. 

Brother Charles Mayne has been cordially received by us, 
as a brother in Christ, and as your Representative, the duties of 
which office he has discharged with fidelity and diligence. 

We have appointed our beloved Brother, and respected Pre* 



I81&] ( ^S9 ) 

sidebt, Mr. Reece, to hold your next Conference, knowinfi^ thai 
he 18 every way qualified to advise and assist you in allyotir 
afTain. 

And now, dearly beloved Brethren,, let us ^ Give ourselves 
coniiniially to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.** Be not 
discouraged: remember the dying words of our venerable 
Founder, *< The best of ajul is, God is with vbJ\ May the 
Great Head of his Church ever <^ be die glory in the midst of 
Hs, and a wall of fire around us»'' 

on behalf of the Conference, assembled in 
Jx>ndon, August 14, 1^16,

p. 4. What Preachers have died since the last Conference? 

A. L In Great Britain the five following, viz. 

(L) Thomas Taylor, who was brouj^ht lo the knowlcdj;c of 
the truth as it is in Jesus, in early life. He commenced his 
itinerant career in tlie year 1761; and was a most laborious, / 
fiuthful, and eminently successful Minister of C'hrist, for the 
long space of 56 years. In the early part of his public life, 
when Methodism was but in its infancy, he had, t:)(;ether with 
his cotcmporaries and fellow- labiiurers in tliat ^reat work, to 
endure much from hunger, cold, weariness, and persecution 
but he met and surmounted these difficulties with u truly apos- 
tolical intrepidity ; and, under circumstances which would iiave 
overwhelmed a mind of ordinary energies, he pursued, with in- 
defatigable assiduity, a course of study and labour of uncommon 
magnitude. Though for many of the first years of his ministry 
be had to take long and frequent journeys, and to preach a great 
namber of sermons, yet, by habits of early rising, and a dili- 
gent improvement of his whole time, he acquired a respectable 
share of useful literature. To this, however, he conscientiously 
avoided giving a prominency in his preaching, and ninde it 
ttrictly subordinate and subservient to the doctrines of the 
Gospel, His discourses, which were always short, were chiefly 
of a practical and experimental character; and to the last, he 
waaVery fervent and impressive in the pulpit. He vja& «k. \o\Mix

/ 



( 39X ) [1817. 

and was zealous and firm in its enforcement As a Pastor^ he 
evinced the most commendable diligence, visiting, where it wai 
at all practicable, every part of the flock of Christ under his 
care ; for which purpose he generally set apart two hours in the 
day : and this practice he continued to the last week of his life. 
In his family, he set the Lord always before him, studying how 
he might best promote the salvation of his household; and,, in 
the worship of the family, he was most regular, and delightfully 
solemn. In the private circle of his friends he was cheerful and 
improvinf^, knowing well how to con>bine rational instructioa 
with spiritual edification. His natural temper was independent 
and irritable; but these imperfections were so habitually under 
the subduing influence of Divine grace, as to be rarely percep* 
tible even to his most intimate friends;. and, in the decline of 
life, he imbibed a heavenly sweetness of spirit which was seldom 
interrupted. In short, the good degree of learning which he 
attained, his extensive labours, his unceasing activity in the best 
of causes, the almost unparalleled length of his course of efficient 
ministerial duties, and, above all, his close and constant walk 
with God, and universal devotedness to hi^ ff^^J* placed him 
in the highest class of the servants of Qod on earth ; and, we 
have no doubt he is now found near the throne of Him, in whose 
blood he had washed his robes. His death was sudden, and to 
his friends, unexpected: but, with respect to himself, it was 
doubtless followed by nn abundant entrance into the Kingdom of 
God. He died at liirch- House, near Bolton, the residence of 
his friend, Roger Holland, Esq. on the 16th of October, I8I69 
in the 79th year of his age ; having, only a few hours before his 
departure, in an animated sermon, set forth the deep things of 
God. 

(2 ) Alexander Suter, who was brought to God in the 
prime of life, under the ministry of Mr. Thomas Olivers. The 
intensity of his zeal attracted the notice of the Rev. John Wcs^ 
ley, by whoni he was appointed a class-leader, in London. His 
sphere of usefulness was soon enlarged by successful attempts to 
preach the Gospel. In 1779 he commenced the itinerant life, 
md laboured arduously S3 years. Bodily indispositioB thea 
compelled him to retire, in a great measure, from his general 
labours; bnt he still continued occasionally to publish the tidings 
of salvation, as far as strength of body would permit, for five 
years more. He closed his earthly career, and entered upon a 
blissful immortal itv, March 9th, 1817, in the 63d year of bit 
age. He shunned not to declare the whole counsel of God; 
and often censured, what he believed to be a growing evil 
amongst the Methodists, conformity to the world,, especially in 
ibe fripperies of dress. Through the whole of his liBgering 



1817.] ( 293 ) 

illness, he was resigned ; he was happy. When informed of 
the extreme precariousncc^fi of his life, and die probable sudden- 
ness of his dissolution, he exclaimed — ^^ Bless the Lord, his 
will be done !'' And as he approached the confines of the king 
of terrors, he often said, *^ It is not a dark valley, llicrc is 
no darkness at all. No! the Sun of Righteousness hath risen 
there with healing in his wings." 

(3.) James Daniel Bukton, who was a native of Manchester. 
His parents taught him, from his infancy, to know, fear, and 
love God, as the principal end of man. When he was about 
the age of 16, an awful Providence, of which he was an cye- 
witnessy- was sanctified to his effectual awakening. He very soon 
obtained the peace of God ; and gave unquestionable evidence 
of a sound and scriptural conversion. In his Slst year he was 
called out to travel. He cheerfullv left an affluent home, and 
many flattering prospects of a worldly nature, to preach, amongst 
perishing sinners, the unsearchable riches of Christ; and, in a 
few years, he became an able minister of the Gospel. Hb offlible, 
uniform, and pious deportment endeared him to all his intimate 
friends, and caused him to l>e greatly and generally beloved, in 
the different circuits in which he laboured. His course was 
short. In the tenth year of his itinerancy his health failed. For 
more than two years and a half, he wms tlio subject of severe 
and complicated afHictions, which he bore with exemplary pa- 
tience. Often, under the most painful sufferings, his expressions 
of resignation and gratitude to God were such as afiected and 
delighted all who heard them. A few hours before his death, 
he was asked if he was happy ? He replied, ** O yes ! very 
happy. What now should I do without my Saviour?" He 
triumphantly entered into his Mabter*s joy on the 24th of March, 
1817, in the S.^d year of age. 

(4.) John Haukis, of the Barnstaple circuit, who ^as a 
Christian of sterling piety, and served the Lord with perseverance 
and fidelity. A^ a preacher, he was generally acceptable, and 
alwavs useful. He died in the month of May, in the S7th year 
of his age, and the 7tli of his itinerancy, happy in God. 

(5.) William Applkton ; a man of genuine piety, amiable 
temper, and ardent zenl for the glory of God, and the welfare of 
immortal souls. He began to travel in the year 1810; and, in 
the circuits where he laboured, was made a blessing to many 
persons. On the 1st of last June, Mr. Appleton preaclied tlirice, 
and administered the Lord's supper to the society at Lutor. 
'The word was attended with Divine unction. The next morn- 
ing, while travelling in a gig, having lost the reins, he leaped 
out of the carriage, by which his ancle was dislocated^ and hU 
leg dreadfallj fractured Durinfr the painful opcTal\ou o\ ^Vava^

the bone, anil through the whole of tl^e nffliciion, which rw.U - • ^ 
in his death, he evidenced the ntmost resignation to the Divirs t^ 
wilK often saying, '* My heavenly Father ooes all things well •"' 
In taking leave of bis dear wife and children, be encouragorJ 
her to look to the Lord for support ; and earnestly prayed, that, 
if his infant boy should be spared, God would make him a gor ^c/ 
man, and a missionary. Mr. Apploton mentioned to his Sujkt- 
intendant that God had been pn^aring him for thia affliction: 
that he had lieen as happy for a month back as he could be. 
The ninlit before his death, nficr a little sleep, he exclaimed, 
<^ Glory be to him that sitteth upon the throne, and to the 
Lamb for ever I Glory be to the Father, for his mercy and 
grace manifested to us ! Glorj' be to God the Son, who hnih 
redeemed us by his most precious blood ! Glory be to God the 
Holy Ghost the Sanctificr I O, ye angels of light, assist ne 
to praise Him ! O what glory — what glor}' — what glory ij^ 
this !" He continued exccedingfy happy till near two o'clock cw 
the following afternoon, June '21, when he entered into the j.»y 
of his Lord, in the 38th year of his age. 

2. The ibilowing Preachers have died while on Foreign 
Missiovs, viz. 

(1.) Jeremiah BooTHBY, who died at Roseau, in the island 
of Dominica, July Hth, 1816. He went as a Missionary to 
the West Indies in the year 1813; and had laboured wiih zeal 
and success in that part of our Lord's vineyard to the time of 
his last sickness. His health had in general been good from the 
time of his going abroad ; and, to all appearance, he was likely 
to have been long spared as an Ambassador for Christ to the 
Hcnthen; but, by a peculiar and mysterious providence, was 
early removed from his sphere of usefulness to an eterntil home. 
He preached on the evening of the 4th of July to a large con- 
gregntion ; when a person of the name of K— came into 
the chapel, with a determination to disturb Mr, Boothhy. He 
finished the sermon evidently with some difficuliv, Ixin^x much. 
hurt at the man's behaviour ; and, after service, stepped up to 
liim, and requested that he would go with him into the house, 
hoping to convince him of the impropriety of his conduct. The 
riulr reply w'hich he made to Mr. CcKUhby, drew such a crowd 
of people round about thcin, that he had to pass out of the

Hud alannetl, that, for some minutes, she could not open the 
door: and, as Mr. Booth by was in a high state of pcrs])iration» 
uih\ without his hat, he took cold, which immediately aflcctetl

Messed state; and, a liltic lime before his death, he desired 
Mr. Dakin to inform all his denr friends that he blessed God 
that ever be set his fool on Dominica. 

(2.) John Lewis, jun. a naiive of Wales, who was a Mis- 

rionaiy on the island of Aniigua, and died Juij 17, 1816. His 

death was rather sudden: for, ihough he had been a little unwell, 

he was not at all suspected lo be in any immediate danger before 

the day on which he died. Bui though his call was sudden, and 

he was in the bloom of life, he was not found unprepareti. His 

soal was happy in his God, and Jesus was his support and refuge 

in hb short, but painful affliclion. He was a young man of 

eminent piety, and of very promising talents and usefulness ; 

and, after labouring only two years as a Missionary, was taken 

to his eternal rest. 

(3.) John Burgar, a native of London. He was strongly 
attached to our doctrines and discipline. Being anxious to pro- 
mote the welfare of his fellow-creatures, he left his native country 
to preach the Gospel of the Grace of God to the poor Heathen. 
The Lord blessed his labours in the island of Jamaica, especially 
at Morant Bay, where he joined above 200 members to the so- 
ciety in about nine months. The Gentlemen of that place were 
so iar pleased and satisfied with his conduct during that period, 
that, after his death, they generously voted at their Vestry Meet- 
ing one hundred pounds sterling to his widow, as a testimony 
of the high sense which they had of the excellency of his cli.i- 
racter and proceedings during the time he had the charge of ihni 
congregation. But amidst his prospects of usefulness, notwii!)- 
standing the great want of faithful labourers in that island, Uw' 
Lord saw fit lo remove him from the labours and trials of nior- 
Udity, to the joys of paradise, on the 1st of August, 1816, in lUr 
28th year of his age. . His remains were attended to the grave 
by some thousands of mourners, who deeply lamented the lo?-. 
of their beloved Minister. 

(4.) William Lill, who went out as a Missionary to tli(* 
West Indies, in the yen r 1814; and, on December 28th, 18 J ^i* 
was called from the field of Ial)our to the rest of glory. I'or 
some time before his death, he had been unwell; but not so n^ 
to cause him to retire from the work of the Ministry, in wliich 
his soul delighted. He continued to labour in the island <>r 
Grenada to the last Lord's Day before his death. During hi^ 
afiliction, he was truly happy in God; and, in conversation wi;l» 
the Honourable R. Otley, expressed that happiness in stro:.;^ 
language. He was a man of mild and amiable manners ; aoii 
lived and died in the true spirit of a Christian. 

f/5.) John Mann, who was called into the work as a Mis- 
sionary in the year 1786. He was appointed for Novvjl Scvavav 



< 296 ) [1817. 

and CDntioued to labour there and in New Brunswick till through 
age and infirmity he was under the necessity of retiring. But, 
for several years before his death, though he could not ml up the 
place of a regular travelling Preacher, ne preached occasionally, 
and continued united to his brethren ; and his heart was still 
engaged in the cause of his heavenly Master. On February 
'STtn, ISlTf he was called to his eternal home, after having been 
a Minister of Christ upwards of thirty years* 
S. In Ireland^ two have died : viz. 

(I.) John M^AdajIt, who heard and received the gospel with 
all readiness of mind, about the 1 7th year of his age ; and having 
experienced pardoning mercy, was called to pubRsh it to others. 
After labouring at a regular itinerant preacher for some years, 
he was employed as an Irish Missionary; till his arduous exer- 
tions destroyed his constitution. A rheumatic complaint obliged 
him to return from his beloved labours, and become a Supemu* 
merary. His last days were marked with gracious maniSeslajtions 
of Divine love. One who visited him $ays — '^ He was filled 
with such abundance of peace and joy, that he began to praise 
God, and continued rejoicing ana exhorting, with little inter- 
mission, for nearly forty-eight hours.' He believed that the 
Lord had cleiinsed him from all sin. Some of his words were— 
*' Glory, glory — my mother is in heaven, my sister is iu heaven, 
and I am sure that I shall be there also T* He was an affec- 
tionate fellow-Iubourer, and zealous in the discharge of his mi** 
nisterial duty. 

(2.) Daniel M*Colw, who travelled a short time in Ireland 
as a Missionary. By sleeping in damp beds, and by unremiUu<;; 
exertions in the ministry, a consumption was induced; and 
ailer a painful warfare of temptation, and long and severe suffer- 
ings, he died rejoicing in the Lord.

N. B. The preaxling grants of collections for chapels were 
all recommended in the Minutes of the District-Meetings ; and 
as, in general, they relate exclusively to circuits mthin the Hntits 
of the District^ from which they were respectively proposed, the 
Conference has readily sanctioned them. — Brother Robert 



( 330 ) [ISE-^;. 

Huinphrc}'8, also^ received permission, on account of the wi*^^ 
distressiiin^ uigency of the case, to address a circular letter* to 
every circuit in ibe kin^onii requesiting the donation of One 
Guiuen, (and no more,) from each of them, for a chapel in 
Wales. — Various other cases of chapels, which need extensive 
assistance, were duly stated and conhidered. But on account of 
the peculiar circumhtanccs of the times, and of the Connexion, 
the Conference was under the painful necessity of declining to 
authorize, for the present year, any chapel-collections whatever, 
except those included in the foregoing list. 

Q. 13. What is the Judgment of the Conference on the general 
question respecting the relief of those of our chapels, which 
need more pecuniary assistance thnn can l>e obtained in the cir- 
cuits to which they locally belong ? 

A. 1. We are of opinion that it is exceedingly desirable to 
provide some plan for accomplishing this important object, which 
shall iye less inconvenient to the circuits, and more productive to 
the Trustees, than the mode of collecting for chapels now prao 
tised among us. 

^. The tnanks of the Conference are respectfully presented to 
those friends who have transmitted various suggestions and pro- 
jects, relating to this subject ; and they are assured that it is a 
business in which the Conference decidedly feels that the preachers 
and people at large have a common interest with the Trustees. 

S. The President and Secretary are authorized and directed 
to invite such a number of Trustees of chapels as they may think 
proper, to meet a similar number of Preachers, (to be also in- 
vited by them for that purpose,) at Leeds^ on the Saturday im- 
mediately preceding the next Conference, in order to devise and 
bring before the Conference, in a clear and well-digested form, 
some plan of general and efficient relief for such chapels as are 
deeply involved in debt, and have not local means of meeting 
their own expense:*. 

4. The President and Secretary are also author^^ced and directed 
to invite a select number of Preachers and Trustees to meet in 
London, in the month of April or May, 1818, as a preparatory 
Committee, for the purpose of examining and arranging all pro- 
posals or suggestions, relative to a General Chapel Fund, which 
any of our friends have already furnished, or may deem it proper, 
before that period, to furniBh. This preparatory Committee 
shall lay the result of theij examination before the subsequent 
Meeting at Leeds. 

0. 14. What further measure can be adopted to prevent in 
future the imprudent erection of chapels ? 

A. 1. As the repeated cautions and entreaties of the Conference 
have in various instances been disregarded, we now deem it neccs- 



1S17.] [ VyM } 

^^ary lo the lionour and secinity of the Coniuxioii, to appoint 
Five Uretiiren annually as a Chapd'Conuuittce. To iliib Coni- 
Tnittee every proposal for the erection or purchase of any new or 
additional chapel, with clear and full explanations of the neces' 
sity alleged, of the expense contemplated, and of th« subscriptionsy 
and other local income^ likely to be raised, sliall bc' ruomittinJ by 
the Supcrintendant of the circnit, before he shall give any sanc-

Slate (lislinctly whether the candidates can, or cannot, conve- 
niently attend at the Conference then next ensuing. In the case 
of those who can attend the Conference, a Committee shall be 
then appointed, for the purpose of examining them as to their 
fitness for our foreign work, and shall report to the Conference 
the result of their examination. And in case of those who can- 
not attend the Conference for this purpose, they shall be directed 
to attend the Committee in London, in order to be examined by 
them, at such time as they shall appoint, previously to the 
Meeting of the Conference. 

2. The Conference adopts the following Resolutions, unani- 
mously recommended by the Preachers and other friends who 
composed this year the Committee of Examination and Finance, 
and directs that they shall be forthwith carried into effect : viz. 

(1.) That in every District, where it has not been already 
done, a District Missionary Society shall be immediately formed, 
under the direction of the Chairman of the District, and of the 
Executive Committee in London ; — or that, at leastj a District- 
Treasurer for contributions in aid of our Missions shall be ap- 
Sointed in every District, to whom all monies raised for the said 
fissions by any Branch Missionary Society, within the limits of 
that District, shall be uniformly paid, so as to be remitted through 
that medium only to the General Treasurers. 

(2,) That even in circuits where no Branch Missionary Society 
has yet been formed, all monies collected among us, in any mode 
whatsoever, for Missionary purposes, shall be uniformly paid to 
the Missionary Treasurer for the District, and by him remitted 
once in every quarter, or oftener, to the General Treasurers. 

(3.) That all Missionary monies and accounts shall be strictly 
kept separate, by the Superintendants of the respective circuits 
at home and abroad* from the monies and accounts of our Book- 
room, and from all other monies, accounts, and collections what- 
soever, according to the Minute of the Conference of last year. 

(4.) That the Missionaries shall be peremptoriiy prohibited 
from drawing Bills for Missionary expenses upon any other (ler- 
son than the General Treasurers ; and that, in order to prevent 
any such irregularities, printed Forms of Bills shall lie forwarded 
to each Missionary Station ; of which fornifs, and no others, the 
Missionaries shall be required to make use, when they have oc- 
casion. 

(5.) Til at suitable Premises for a Methodist Missionary House 
and Office, shall be immediately procured, in some central situ- 
ation in London, atTordint; sufficient accommodation for the 
orderly transaction of all our Missionary business, and for a 
Depot of proper Articles which are wanted in the Outfit of Mis- 
sionaries; and that for the funVvw asiivsVaxice ol >5«\^T\^^vsva.tt\:s 



1817.] ( 3S5 ) 

and Secretarfes, n competent Clerk shall be appointed, and 
Btatedly employt^d, in order that there may b^ a re(^ular system 
of book-keeping) in respect to all our Misssonary Receipts and 
Expenditures. 

8. The Conference approves of the object and outline of the 
following Plan of a General Wesleyan« Methodist Missionary 
Society, drawn up at the request of the Committee of Exami- 
nation and Finance; and directs the Executive Committee to 
make such additional arrangements as may be necessary for per* * / 
fecting it, and carrying it into full effect. / 

Plan qf a General Wesleyan'Methodist Missionary Societj/. 

The Methodist Societies and Congregations, with others, 
friends to Christian Missions in general, and to the Metiiodist 
Missions in particular, having in different parts of the kingdom 
formed themselves into Missionary Societies, for the purpose of 
aiding the said missions by their donations and subscriptions, 
and for effectually providing for the collecting of the same ; the 
Conference, deeply impressed with gratitude to God, for these 
animating proofs of their Christian zeal and benevolence, and 
anxious to give full efficiency and regularity to a mode of raising 
suj)plies for the numerous and important missions carried on 
under its direction, which, though but recently introduced, 
promises to render the most essential service to the Mission 
cause, both by directing the attention of the religious public to 
the state of the heathen, and by engaging their assistance and 
prayers, directs as follows : 

1 . That all the members of Methodist Missionary Societies, 
for every district or place in which they may be formed, and all 
subscribers to the Methodist Missions, shall be considered mem- 
bers of a General Society, to be entitled, *' The General 
Wesleyan-Methodist MissioNAUY Society." 

2. That all Societies which have been, or may be hereafter, 
formed, in the Districts into which the Methodist Connexion is 
divided, and bearing the name of those districts respectively, 
shall be entitled, " Methodist Missionary Auxiliary Societies," 
for the district in which they have been or may be formed ; and 
that the Societies formed in the particular Ciradts of any district, 
shall be entitled, ^' Methodist Missionary Branch Societies," 
for the circuit, or for the city, town, or village, in which they 
are established. 

3. That a public meeting of this Society shall be held annually 
in London, in the City Road Chapel, or elsewhere, in or about 
the month of May. 

4. That the accounts of the receipts and ex|pei\da>x\^ ^^ nJv^v^ 
Society shall be made up yearly by l\\c Oe\\et«X ^t^wJox«^^> 



( S36 ) [1817. 

rrom Juue 24 to June 24, whichy after having been submittal 
for minute investigation to the Committee of Examination and 
Finance, in the month of July foUowingi according to the exist- 
ing rule of the Conference, shall be pnnted, tog^tner with the 
General Report of the state of the Missions, and of the pro- 
ceedings of the Executive Committee* 

5. That it shall be most earnestly recommended to all the 
Auxiliary and Branch Sbcieties, in connexion with the General 
Society, to make up their accounts in like manner, on the 24th 
of June in every year, and to transmit them to the General Se- 
cretaries in London, withia the month of July following, and 
not later, in order to their publication in the General Report. 

Q. 23. Is any regulation nece&sary respecting our Schools at 
Kings wood and \V ood house-Grove r 

A. Let it be well understood, that all parents, who send their 
sons to either school, must pay the whole of their travelling ex- 
penses thither. 

Q. 24. What measures shall be adopted with a view to the 
permanent improvement of our general finances, and in order, 
especially, to lessen the present disparity between the average 
income and the average expenditure of the Connexion, as they 
respect the Contingent Fund ? 

,A» 1. We agree, that in future no Preacher shafi receive from 
that Fund the allowance for a servant, unlesii he have travelled 
ten years at least, or unless he have one or more children. 
When a Preacher, not having travelled ten years, has only one 
child, he shall be allowed only four pounds annually, towards 
the expense of a servant; but if he have more than one child, 
he may claim the iiill allowance of eight pounds per annum. 

2. No circuit shall receive from the Contingent Fund any sum 
for its Orditiary Deficiencies^ in which the regular allowance for 
board to each Preacher has been more that fourteen shillings 
weekly; except^ (1.) The private yearly collection, rai^^ed in 
soch circuit, shall exceed the amount of its claims for ordinary 
de6ciencie8; or excepty (2.) The family of the Preacher, towards 
whose support such deficiencies are asked, shall include more 
that four children chargeable on the circuit; or except^ (3.) I'he 
Preacher towards whose support the deficiencies arc asked, shall 
have travelled more than twenty years ; or except ^ (4.) The Dis- 
trict Meeting, on examining the case, shall be of opinion that 
there are peculiar circumstances which should induce them to 
recommend to the Conference, and the Conference shall conse- 
quently grant a special exemption from this rule. 

N. B. Although the Conference have deemed it necessary to 
adopt the foregoing regulations, in order to prevent a premature 
increase of allowances for board in iho&e clrcalts which are uot 



able to provide tor that increase by their own local resources, 
without bringing claims on the Contingent Fund, — they at the 
same time take this opportunity of renewing their former recom- 
mendation, that the slated allowance for bmtfd shall not in any 
case be less than ten shillings and sixpence per wedt for eacn 
married Preacher and his family. 

S. The Conference directs and requires the Chairman, and 
other members of every District Meetmg, to be very exact in 
the examination of all claims on the Contingent Fund for the 
article of house*rent, and to make every proper and possible 
reduction in that branch of our ^neral expenditure. 

4. The public collection, in aid of the Contingent Fund, for 
the support and spread of the Gospel at home^ (commonly called 
TAe July Collection^) shall be made in every congregation oh the 
second Sunday in July, at the latest / and every Superintendant 
is required to pay, or cause to be paid, the sum collected in hit 
circuit, to the Treasurer of the Contingent Fund, and to no other 
person^ on the first day of the meeting of every Conference. 

N. B. The Superintendants are directed to attend exacdy to 
all the directions concerning the^^»ir General Congregational Col- 
lectionSf which were published at p. 233 of the Minutes of 1816; 
and also to the directions respecting the Three General Private 
Subscriptions^ which will be found in the Minutes of 1815, p. 128, 
— The subscriptions and collections for the Schools, 8cc. to be 
made in October, are to be sent to Mr. Entwisle, (City Uoad 
Chapel, London,) who is appointed the General Treasurer of 
the School Fund for the ensuing year. 

5. Every Superintendant is required earnestly to invite and 
urge the attendance and assistance of the Circuit Stewards at the 
District* Meeting, according to our rule, during the time when 
the financial affairs of the District, to which they belong, are 
under consideration. And in order to facilitate this object, let 
it be understood and anno(lnced, that the financial busmess of 
the District shall in future always commence at ten o'clock in 
the forenoon of the second day of every District Meeting. 

Q. 25. Is any advice or recommendation necessary respecting 
those Sunday Schools which belong to us, or are aided oy col- 
lections in our chapels ? 

A. It is the deliberate jndgment of the Conference, that well- 
conducted Sunday Schools are of the greatest utility and impor- 
tance, and deserve the zealous support of our Inreachers and 
friends; but that in order to secure and perpetuate the full reli- 
gious benefit, which such institutions are capable of afibrding, 
It is essentially necessary that they should be connected as closely 
as possible with the Church of Christ ; and that the school-hours 
should be. so arranged as not to interfeie) taoT^ >X^«x^V9k i^m^

The Address of the Irish to the British Conference. 
Beloved Fathers and Brethren^ 

WITH the sinccrest affection we present to you our annual 
address. The recollection of our mutual relation, and of the 
aacred bonds by which we are united, with a review of the e?i- 



able to provide tor that increase by their own local resources, 
without bringing claims on the Contingent Fund^ — they at tht 
same time take this opportunity of renewing their former recom- 
mendation, that the itated allowanoe for bmtfd shall not in any 
case be less than ten shillings and sixpence per wedt for eacn 
married Preacher and his family. 

S. The Conference directs and requires the Chairman, and 
other members of every District Meeting, to be very exact in 
the examination of all claims on the Contingent Fund for the 
article of house*rent, and to make every proper and possible 
reduction in that branch of our general expenditure. 

4. The public collection, in aid of the Contingent Fund,, for 
the support and spread of the Gospel at home^ (commonly called 
The July Collection^) shall be made in every congregation oh the 
second Sunday in July, at the latest : and every Superintendant 
is required to pay, or cause to be paid, the sum collected in hit 
circuit, to the Treasurer of the Contingent Fund, and to no oOw 
person^ on the first day of the meeting of every Conference. 

N. B. The Superintendants are directed to attend exactly to 
all the directions concerning the four General Congregational Col- 
lections^ which were published at p. 233 of the Minutes of 1816; 
and also to the directions respecting the JTiree General Private 
Subscriptions^ which will be found in the Minutes of 1815, p. 128, 
— The subscriptions and collections for the Schools, 8cc. to be 
made in October, are to be sent to Mr. Entwisle, (City Uoad < 
Chapel, London,) who is appointed the General Treasurer of 
the School Fund for the ensuing year. 

5. Every Superintendant is required earnestly to invite and 
urge the attendance and assistance of the Circuit Stewards at the 
District* Meeting, according to our rule, during the time when 
the financial affairs of the District, to which they belong, are 
under consideration. And in order to facilitate this object, let 
it be understood and anno(lnced, that the financial business of 
the District shall in future always commence at ten o'clock in 
the forenoon of the second day of every District Meeting. 

Q, 25. Is any advice or recommendation necessary respecting 
those Sunday Schools which belong to us, or are aided by coU 
lections in our chapels? 

A. It is the deliberate jndgment of the Conference, that well- 
conducted Sunday Schools are of the greatest utility and impor- 
tance, and deserve the zealous support of our Preachers and 
friends ; but that in order to secure and perpetuate the full reli- 
gious benefit, which such institutions are capable of afibrding. 
It is essentially necessary that they should be connected as closely 
as possible with the Church of Christ ; and (hat the school-hoort 
should be so arranged as not to interfeie) taoT«^«xw\9kiiQA^.

Q. 4. What Preachers have died since the last Conference? 

JL Twenty-six, viz. 

1. In Great Britain the seventeen following have died, vii. 

(1.) Georob Stkes, jun. In the year 1807> heentened upcn 
the work of an Itinerant Preacher, and laboured with acceptanos 
and profit to the people for nearly ten years. . His last appoial- 
ment was to Paisley, in Scotland, where he continued toexercis 
hb ministry till March, 1817, when he was obliged to desist en 
account of ill health. In his affliction he was resigned to tte 
Divine will, and expressed confidence in the Lord as the God 
of his salvation. Just before his departure^ he desired his w^ 
to read to him the fifth chapter of the second Epiide to ik 
Corinthians ; ^^ Which," said be, *^ describes my pi^sent expe- 
rience. I have a building of God, a house not made with ha]|d% 
eternal in the heavens. I am happy, and have been partiadarb 
so for the two or three last days. Having committed his wife 
and child to the care of Divine Providence, he died in giMt 
peace and holy triumph, on the 18 th day of October, 1817» in 
the 35th year of his age, and the eleventh of his ItinenuMSf. 
He was a man of deep piety, of sound judgment, of* great dilK 
gence^ and of promising talents. 

(2.) John Jackson, jun. A voung man of great proniiae ii 
the church of Christ He had laboured only about eight months 
in the Aberdeen circuit, and about three months in the Banff 
mrcQAi^ when the great Lord of the harvest, in hismyateriouf

■Motioned curcniu he evinoed gemune piety and fenrent xed^ 
with an earnest desire to obtain an increase of useful knowledge^ 
and to become a workman that needed not to be ashamed. Upon 
entering on his labours in his last circuit, he manifested an aroent 
concern for the revival of the work of Ood, and was likely to 
have been extensively useful. The oldest men)bers of the Society 
were pleased with his knowledge^ and with the depth of his ex- 
perience. He died in the fiill triumph of faith, Nov. 9th, 1817. 

(8.) Jonathan Parkin. He was brought to the knowleii^ 
of God in Sheffield, when young in years, and from the time of 
his conversion walked closely and humbly with God. A full and 
permanent conviction of his being called to preach the gospel^ 
led him to take up his cross, first as a local pr^Eicher, and afkor aa 
an itinerant minister in our connexicm. In coming out to travel 
he made a sacrifice of very lucrative prospects, which he had 
firom a rich relation ; but he counted all, these as drcMS, that he 
might win souls to Christ, and enjoy the Divine approbation. 
During the thir^-five years of his itinerancy, his character as a 
Christian and a Freacher was eminently irreproachable ; and his 
ministry was acceptable and useful, especially in building up 
believers in their most holy faith. Although in his natural state 
levi^ was his besetting sin. Divine grace nad given him such a 
complete victory, that nis habitual seriousness oecame remark- 
able. He poured out hb blood and soul together, (by the rup- 
ture of a blood vessel) on the 29th of November, 1817. He 
exclaimed, when dying, ^<I leave the world possessed of -those 
consolations which I have preached to others.'* 

(4.) Thomas Wilton. He was a man of primitive simplicity 
of spirit, and of unaffected piety. He was plain in his manners^ 
friendly in his disposition, and laborious and diligent in hif 
Christian calling. In his youth he was brought to a saving know- 
ledge of Divine things^ and was called to toe Christian ministry 
when somewhat advanced in life. He travelled more than 19 
years with an unblemished character, was useful in the churchy 
and aflecdonately esteemed by his colleaj|[ues. After a severe 
affliction oS nine weeks, he died, full of faith and of the Holv 
Ghost, on the 19th of December, 1817, in the 50th year of his 
age. 

(5.) Joseph Dakin. He viras a native of Castleton, in Der- 
tmhire. In the early part of his life he was converted to God 
through the instrumentality of theJVfethodists; and after having 
laboured for a season in a local capacity, entered upon the work 
of a travelling preacher. His zeal for the salvation of immortal 
aouls, prompted him to exertions beyond his' strength; in conse* 
quence of whidi his health b^an to declme m litie fiSd^^j^Kt ^

itinerancy. In his debilitated state he broke a blood-vessel, 
which obliged him for ever to desist from his labours. In bb 
last illness he said to a friend, 'M am happy in the Lord, and 
ready for my departure. I am as sure of my heavenly inhe- 
ritance, as if I were already in possession of it."' He died at 
Thirsk, January the 8th, I0I8, aged 31 years. 

(6.) RoBBRT Roberts. He was bom at Bonum, near 
Corwen, in North Wales ; and was one of the first firuits of 
our mission in the Principality. He was truly a man of God, 
and his life was a comment on the doctrines which he believed 
and taught. His communion with God was deep, and his gift 
in prayer singularly great. He entered upon the work of Ae 
ministry with mucn diffidence, and was admitted on trial as an 
Itinerant Preacher, at the Conference in 1803. He continued 
to travel among us till about twelve months before his death ; 
when, in consequence of weakness he wa^ obliged to desist 
from his work, to which, (to use his own language) he '^ died 
a martyr." The day before his death he said, '' I have fitmi 
my youth feared and loved God, and I have no doubt of my 
acceptance with him through Jesus Christ." The next morn- 
ing he requested his wife to lift him up, and then said, '' My 
dear, I am going to leave you, but the Lord will be with you. 
Jesus Christ hath washed away all my sins with his most pre- 
'cious blood." While in the act of utteritig these words, his 
spirit took its flight to the paradise of uod. He died on 
EViday, January 16th, 1818, in the 34th year of his age, and 
the 16th of his itinerancy. ^ 

(7.) William Ashman. He was a native of Holcombe, m 
the county of Somerset. From bis Journal, it appears that 
at a very early period of life he possessed the fear of God, and 
felt the drawings of the Spirit. His conversion took place 
when he was about seventeen years old. He entered on his 
itinerant labours in the year 1765. At that very early period 
of Methodism, he, as well as his brethren in the ministry, 
endured great hardships, and passed through many difficulties. 
He desisted from travelling as a regular preach/er twenty yean 

Erevious to his dissolution. He lived at his native place, where 
e continued to exercise his ministry, and to act as a class- 
leader, till within a short time of his death, which happened 
on the 9th of February, 1818. At the close of life, he declared 
himself to be very happy in God, and perfectly resigned to his 
wUl. 

(8.) John Wittam. Hewasbbm at Sutton, in the parish 
of Kildwick, Yorkshire. ^ At an early period of life he was 
brought to a knowledge of the truth, by the instrumentality 
of the Rev. Mr. Grimahaw, of Haworth. He commenced his 



1818.] ( S07 ) 

itinerant labours in the year 1767; &nd travelled forty-four 
years in various parts of England and Ireland. His piety was 
genuine^ and his life exemplary. Being intern^ted respecting 
the state of his mind, a little before his death, he replied, ^ I 
want to be filled with God ;" and afterwards declared that this 
desire was realised. In the extremity of his affliction he said, 
^' come. Lord Jesus, and take me to thyself;" and calmly re- 
signed his spirit to God, in the 81st year of his age. He died 
near the place of his nativity, February 16th, 1818. 

(9.) Edward Hare. He was well known in our connexion, 
as a man of no ordinary talents and character. Possessed of a 
strong and penetrating mind, enjoying the advantages of a 
respectable education, and habituated in early life to reading 
and reflection, he acquired such mental and moral qualifications 
as commanded general esteem. A sound conversion to God^ 
by the instrumentality of the Methodists, gave a full deter- 
mination to his character and pursuits. He now burned with 
zeal to preach the glorious gospel of the blessed God'; and 
under the instruction and encouragement of his friend, Mr. 
Bbnson, entered upon the Christian ministry. His intaase 
and incessant application to study, and his extraordinary 
exertions in the pulpit, were for some years seen to prey upon 
his health ; but nothing could abate the ardourof his mind, or 
induce him in the least degree to relax in his diligence. A 
pulmonary consumption at length ensued, which baffled all 
the efibrts of the faculty, and terminated his valuable life in 
the 43d year of his age, and the 20th of his ministry. He died 
at Exeter, whither he had gone for the benefit of the air, glo- 
riously exulting in the prospect of a blessed immortality. 

With the doctrines and discipline of Methodism, he was 
deeply and extensively acquainted ; and his numerous writings 
in their defence, are distinguished by honest zeal and great force 
of argument. A little before his death, when interrogated con- 
cerning his views of those doctrines which he had preached 
and defended ; he replied, " They are interwoven with my 
existence. I might as well attempt to think myself a mere 
imagination, as strive to disbelieve any one of them. The 
great doctrines of Methodism I love. It is by insisting upon 
them that good is done. In fact, little gooa is done in the 
world without a proportionate share of the vital articles of 
Methodism.'' 

He was a man of great uprightness and integrity ; and as a 
counsellor and fellow-helper with his brethi*en, his wisdom 
and firmness were universally acknowledged. At the same 
time nothing could exceed his attention to the best interests of 
hb family. During his last illness^ he excla\iweA) vck V!ci!&\k»^T««^

(10.) Hamokl KiTTLB. He was a mm of ioflesible intagiil)' 
and geouiae piety. When wag about vereDteen years of act, 
he was awakened to a diacovery of his sin and danger, bubB 
a aermon preached by the Rev. Jduph Benson, then in Ac 
Bimiiiigham circatt. Having fled for refoge to lay hold of tk 
hope net before him, and having obt&ined a sense of faia•^ 
ceptanco with Ood, through faith in Jesus Christ, he M^ei *~ 
dudicntvd himneU' to the scn-icc of the churt^h. In the 
1800, )ic was ('nl!i.'d nut as a traveiiing Preacher, and for 18 
yearn laboured in the Lord's vineyard with zeal, acceptane^ 
and aucceu. Daring his protracted illness, and in tbe imnfr

was resigned to the will of God. He had hope in dcalfa, aai

attached to the doctrines and diadplinq of Methoditm. It 
was kis general ondeavonr to live so as to please God^ and be 
foottd of him ill peace^ without spot, and bhuneless. His 
sermons were characterized by simplicity, energy, and pointed 
application to the consciences of his hearers ; and his talents 
were such as rendered him very acceptable and useful in the 
circuits where, he laboured : many were awakened and con* 
verted through his instrumentality. During his illness^ he 
mentioned with lively emotions the doctrines of Justification 
by Faith, the Direct Witness of the Spirit, and Present Sal- 
vation ; which, said he, are the glory of Methodism. Some 
of his last words were, ^^ Come, Lord Jesus, come quickly V 
He died May 5th, 1818, in the 39th year of his age. 

(13.) Gborgb Story. He was an old disciple, and faithAiI 
labourer in the Lord's vineyard. His piety was genuine, and 
imiformly evidenced by a life and conversation unblameable 
and holy. His views of Christianity, in all its branches, were 
clear and correct, and his attachment to every part of Metho- 
dism steady and uninterrupted. He believed and loved our. . 
doctrines, which he considered as behig those of the Scrip- 
tures, and perfectly approved of our discipline, and took all 
opportunities of enforcing it. He was received as an itinerant 
Preacher in the year 1762, continued to travel in various parts 
of England, Scotland, and Ireland, for * twenty-nine years ; 
and had many proofs that his labours were attended with suc- 
cess. In the' year 1792, he was appointed Editor of our 
Magazine, and other publications; and a few years after,, 
Snperintendant of our Printing Office, the duties of which 
departments he discharged to the satisfaction of the Coif- 
ference, and to his own credit, until his various infirmities 
rendered it necessary that he should be released from them. 
The weakness attendant on age came very gradually upoft him, 
until within a few months of his death, when his strength of 
body, and the &culties of his mind decayed apace. ij[is end 
^ was peaceful and serene, as his life had been meek, gentle, 
* and temperate. A short time before his death, to a friend,, 
who asked him concerning his prospects into eternity, he said, 
*^ I feel Christ to be more precious to my soul than ever." 

(14.) Jambs Nbbdham. He was a man of eminent piety, and 
of unblemished conduct. He travelled with great acceptance 
for nineteen years, and was very useful in every circuit where 
he was stationed. His amiable temper, his faithful ministry, 
and his unwearied diligence in the discharge of every duty, 
endeared him to the whole of his acquaintance. After an ill- 
ness of three days, during which he was kept in perfect peace ^ 
he finished his earthly course, and entered uvto \v» ^^sXftV 'j.-

joy. . His death may be justly considered as A serious loss to 
die M^hodist connexion ; Init the residiie of the Spirit is wilii* 
the Lord^ who will not fisil to provide hisjpeople wUh a svin^ 
of fiuthful ministers. He died on June S/f 1818^ inNthe4Btt 
year of his age. ■ 

(15.) John Townsxnd. He was brought to a knowledge of 
God in early life ; and soon after Us conversion b^^ lo 
preach the unsearchable riches of Christ. His piety was deep 
and unquestionable ; his general behaviour was blameless and 
irreproadiabley and his tdents such as rendered him accept- 
able and useful wherever he laboured. He had a deep sense 
of the importance of a faithful discharge of the Gospel Mi- 
nistry, and entered into the most solemn engagements with 
God^ that he might approve himself to Him, and be found of 
Him at last without spot and blameless. He once observed 
to a respectable collee^e; that his aim was, ^^Not to be a 
great preacher, but a good man ;" which, in the opinicm of 
his friend, was the way to true greatness. The subseqpient 
conduct of Brother Townsend shewed the sincerity of hu ob- 
servation, and the excellency of the sentiment. His heart 
was in his work to the last ; and when he saw that his belief- 
of returning to his former lal)ours were never to be realized, 
he said, with deep feeling, '^ The will of the Lord be done.'* 
His death was sudden. He rose from his bed eariy in the 
morning, and laying himself down again, in a few minutes 
breathed his last, in the 67 th year of his age. ^ * 

(16.) JosBPH Kitchen. He was a man of unaffected piety 
and strict int^rity. He began his itinerancy in the year 1799, 
and laboured with approbation and success in the circuits to 
which he was appointed. During the last year of his life be 
was greatly debihtated, but did not remit his public labouis 
till within a few weeks of his decease. For threed ays before 
his death he endured a great fight of afiliction ; he was, how- 
ever, perfectly recollected, resigned to the "mil of God, and « 
possessed of an unshaken confidence in the God of his salva- 
tiop. He bore a noble testimony to the efficacy of divine 
grace, to all who visited him. Some of his last sentences 
were, ^ I feel the power of religion : my confidence in God 
is firm : Jesus Chnst is precious : I have no depcndance on 
any thing I ever did, or now suffer : . all my hope is in the 
blood of Christ." He exchanged the earthly bouse of his 
tabernacle for a house not made with hands eternal in die 
heavens, on Monday the 27th of July, 1818, in the 48th year 
of his age, and the 19th of his itinerancy. 

(170 John Wilshaw. He was a native of the Leek cir- 
cuity and for many years laboured as an itinerant Preacher. 



1818.] ( 401 ) 

[n the year 1809^ he retired as a Supernumerary. His man- 
ners were eccentric : but his talents as a Preacher were gene- 
rally iacceptable | and in the course of his ministry he was 
instrumental in the conversion of sinners* He bore his last 
afflictions with patience and resignation; and in his dying 
moments was recollected and happy. ** Glory be to God^^' 
were the last words he was heard to utter. He departed this 
life July 27th, 1818. 

2. In Ireland, three have died : viz. 
(1.) William M^Kee, who, when very young, was con- 
verted to God. He possessed a sound understanding, deep 
piety, and much holy ardent zeal. In July, \S\5, he com^ 
menced his itinerant labours as a Missionary in Ireland. 
Those who knew him, during the two years of his itinerancy, 
bear ample testimony of' his piety, zeal, industry, courage, 
indefatigable labours, and success in his Master's work. He 
offered himself to go on a foreign mission, and was accepted 
by the Conference in 1817 ; but before the account of his 
appointment had arrived, he was seized with the typhus fever, 
which then prevailed in Ireland, and after ten days' illness he 
was called into the eternal world, on the 30th of July, 1817* 
He died in the full triumph of fiadth. 

(2.) Thomas Johnson, in whose character were united, 
diligence and zeal in his ministerial duties ; fidelity and affec- 
tion in his domestic relations ; benevolence and sympathy for 
the afflicted and wretched ; and a pure and ardent devotedness 
to God, seldom equalled in society. 

He entered on the ministry in the year 1797^ &nd died in 
August 1817) in the full assurance of hope. 

(3.) James Rennick, aged 70 years. This venerable man, 
early in life, heard and believed the gospel ; and having ob- 
tained mercy through the blood of Christ, he soon began to 
preach the truths which he felt. In the year 1782, he became 
^an itinerant Preacher, and continued to travel, faithfully and 
acceptably, until the year 1803 ; when sinking under a weight 
of various afflictions, he endured with patience the will of 
God. 

He wa$ a man of good understanding, and great prudence ; 
steady in his friendships, and of inviolable confidence. His 
labours were unceasing, and his knowledge of our doctrines, 
and attention to our discipline, rendered his ministry useful. 

He walked humbly with God, in all his commandments and 
ordinances blameless, and finished his course, praising and 
blessing God, who had given him to enjoy that full salvation 
which he had long preached to others.

3. Tbe following Preachers have died^ who were on the 
list of onr Foreign Missionaries : viz. 

(1.) William Bbacock ; who went as a Missionary to the 
West Indies, in the year 1815. In reference to this exodloit 
young man, one of the missionaries says, " I first became 
acquainted with our dear brother, in die island of St. Vincent's ; 
and, after he left that place, carried on a correspondence with 
him till near the time of his death. From first to last, I foiuid 
him to be a man of eminent piety. His charity, diligence, 
zeal, humility, resignation, and love, I scarcely ever saw 
equalled. He took cold by sailing in an open boat for Prince 
Rupert's Bay ; and though no danger was at first apprdiended, 
a fever ensued, which became more and more violent, till it 
terminated in his death, on the 29th of August, 1817* Duriitf 
his affliction, he expressed a strong confidence in Crod, m 
his mind was kept in perfect peace." 

(2.) JosBPH \Varo ; — ^who was sent as a Missionary to tbe 
Bahamas, in the year 1814 ; and after labouring zealouslv and 
fiEiithfallv for nearly three years, was called to his eternal home 
on Sunday, September 21st, 1817- The following account of 
his affliction and death was given by Mr. Rutledge, who was 
with him during the mournful scene : ^^ On Monday the 16th 
of September, though very unwell, he preached in the evenii^ 
at Nassau, and resumed his labours on the following evenings 
but I had to finish the service for him. On the Wednesday 
morning, I found him in a high and apparently bad fever. 
Two medical gentlemen attended him, but all their efforts to 
abate the severity of his disorder, were ineffectual. For three 
days we thought him to be recovering ; but on the Sunday 
morning he begui to change for death. That day he spent in 
prayer, and in exhorting the people who visited him ; occa* 
sionally singing praises to God, and expressing the utmost 
cheerfulness and exultation in the prospect of eternal glory. 
His funeral was probably the largest ever seen in Nassau. 
The white inhabitants attended with every token of respect; 
and the behaviour of our black people deeply affected tbe 
spectators in general.'- 

(3.) John D. Allen ; who entered upon the work of the 
ininistry in the year 1813 ; and was appointed as a Missionaiy 
to the island of Nevis, in the West Indies. He laboured with 
much zeal and faithfulness for some time before his health 
b^an to decline ; and did not return to his native land, till 
his brethren in the District were fully persuaded that this 
measure was necessary in order to the preservation of his life. 
In the month of June, 1817, he arrived in a very debilitated 
state, and gradual 1}^ sunk under the pressure of affliction, till 



1818.] ( 408 ) \ 

lis spirit returned to God who gave it. He died in Novcniber, 
1817* He was a young^ man of an amiable dispofiition, and 
>f genuine piety ; and though early called into the etamal 
i¥orId, we have reason to believe that he was fully prepared 
for the Paradise of God. * ^ 

(4.) Michael Head. This excellent man went as . a Mis- 
lionary to the Bahamas in the year 1815 ; and after labouring 
mth much zeal and success for nearly three years, was called 
to the rest of eternal glory, llie last sermon he preached 
was from the words of Job ; ^^ I know that my Redeemer 
liveth."' Soon after this he was attacked bv a violent * fever, 
which terminated in his death, Nov. 18th, l817« During his 
affliction, his mind was sometimes in heaviness through ooanir 
fold temptations ; but through the blood of the everlasting 
covenant, he became more than conqueror, and his soul was 
filled with peace and joy in believing. His last words w:ere, 
^* Come, O come, and take me." 

(5.) John Smith, 2d. He entered upon the work of a tra- 
velling Preacher in the year 1808 ; and, after labouring some 
years in our regular circuits, offered himself as a Missionary 
to the West Indies. But soon after his appointment to the 
Island of St. Eustatius, it pleased God to call him to his 
eternal rest. He was a man of deep piety, was much in 
prayer, and lived in the spirit of his Divine Master. Though 
nis talents were not brilliant, they rendered him generally 
acceptable, and the Lord gave him many seals to his ministry. 
He died May 14th, 1818. 

(6.) William Turton. He Mras a man of colour, and a 
native of Barbadoes, in the West Indies, where he was 
awakened and converted to God. Some time after he entered 
upon the ministry, and in the year 1798, was appointed to the 
Missionary work. He dischai^ed the duties of nis office with 
fidelity and zeal for nearly twenty years ; and, through the * 
divine blessing, was extensively useful in the Bahama Islands. 
About two years ago, his strength began to decline ; but as he 
was unwilling to retire from the work, continued to labour to 
the utmost of his ability, till be was under the necessity of 
giving up that employment which had long been the delight 
of his soul. After lingering some time, he was called to his 
heavenly home, in the 57th year of his age. The last words 
which were heard from his dying lips were, " Glory be 
to God !*'

Q. 16. What is the result of the arrangements made last 
year, with a view to some improvement in our mode of re- 
lieving those Chapels which need more pecuniary assistance 
than can be obtained in the Circuits to which tney locally 
belong? 

A. Meetings of the Committees appointed to consider this 
subject have been held in London ana in Leeds, which were 
attended by various Preachers, and by many respectable 
Trustees from the London Ekist, London West, Rochester, 
Canterbury, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sowerby-Bridge, 
Halifax, Wakefield, Colne, Huddersfield, Bamsley, Bramlev, 
Derby, Rochdale, Todmorden, Bolton, York, Norwich, 
Carlisle, Otley, Market-Raisen, and other Circuits. Several 
Projects and Suggestions were received from different parts of 
the Connexion, and duly considered. After much discussion 
the Committee at Leeds nave reported to the Conference their 
opinion on the subject, in the following Resolutions : ' 

^^ 1. That the thanks of this Committee tire due to the 
several Preachers and other Gentlemen who have furnished the 
Plans of Relief for Chapels which have been laid before us, 
for the affectionate zeal which they have displayed in the com- 
mon Cause of the Connexion. 

^^ 2. That it is the opinion of this Committee, that the pre- 
sent mode of collecting for Chapels is inefficient for its object, 
and in other respects highly inconvenient and injurious, both 
to the Preachers and to the People. 

'^ 3. That it is the opinion of this Committee that a General 
Chapel Fund for tlie relief of those Methodist Chapels which 
are deeply involved in debt, and whose Trustees have not local 
means of meeting their own annual expenses, should be in- 
stituted in our Connexion, the supplies for which Fund should 
he raised in the following ways : viz. 

*^ {1.) By regular Private Subscriptions^ to be raised in every 
Circuit in the month of February of every year ; the appli- 
cations to our Members and Friends for such Subscriptions to 
be made by all the Preachers in their men Circuits respectively; 
the Preachers being accompanied in such applications by a 
Deputation from the Tnistees of Chapels in that Circuit. 

^^ (2.) By a Public Collection^ to be made of every Chapel 
tArough the Connexion iu the moutU of February in every year, 
At the close of the app\\cal\otitoT'WSN^\si^>3^a^w5^>C^^^ 



1818.] ( 439 ) 

^^ (3.) By L^racies, which it may be hoped onr more iiretlthy 
Members and Friends may think it their duty to leave to this 
Fund. 

^^ (4.) By Annual SubscrwHonsy to be re(|uested from the 
Trmt'Fimda of every Chapel in the Connexion :— such Sub- 
scriptions to be solicited in proportion to the means and cir- 
camstances of the Trust-Estates respectively^ and to be reck- 
oned as a r^ular item in their Incidental Expenses for the 
year : — ^No Trustees to give less than one Ouinea, as the Sub- 
scription for the year on account of their Chapel : — ^From many 
Chapels the Committee confidently anticipate the annual receipt 
of much larger sums, for an object so important, and so essen- 
tially connected with the permanent welfare of our Connexion : 
A general application to be made to the Trustees by a Circular 
Letter, for carrying into effect this part of the new Plan. 

^' 3. That it is the opinion of this Committee, that the Monies 
to be thus raised should be distributed from year to year, for 
the relief of those Chapels only whose Trustees annually sub- 
scribe to this Fund, according to such Regulations as may 
hereafter be agreed upon, and under the direction of a Com- 
mittee to be annually appointed by the Conference, which Com- 
mittee shall consist of Fifteen Travelling Preachers, and of 
FifteenTrustees, (not beingTravelling Preachers,) chosen chiefly 
from the Districts in the neighbourhood of the place at which 
the following Conference is to be held : — The Committee of 
Distribution to meet on the Saturday previous to the Meeting 
of every Conference, for the examination of such cases of Dis- 
tressed Chapels as may be recommended to them in the Minutes 
of the several District Meetings : — ^Thc particular state of each 
Chapel claiming relief, &s to Debt, Annuieil Income, Expen- 
diture, &c. &c. to be laid before the Committee in writing : — 
One or more general Treasurers for the Chapel Fund to be 
annually appointed at the Conference, who, as well as the 
President and Secretary of the Conference for the time bein^^ 
shall be ex ojkio Members of the Committee of Distribution. 

'* 4. That this Committee do earnestly recommend it to the 
Conference, to continue the appointment of an annual Com- 
mittee, as was the case last year, to watch over the Building 
and Enlargement of Chapels, so as to prevent, in every pos- 
sible way, the recurrence of those imprudent proceedings 
which have occasioned many of our present difficulties.'' 

The Conference having considered the above- recited Report 
of the Committee, resolves, 

1. That the Resolutions of the Committee, appointed to 
arrange a Plan for the Relief of Chapels which need assistance 
from the Connexion, be approved and ado^t^di. 



( 440 ) [181B. 

2. Thata General Chapel Fwid^ to be supported by Private 
Subscriptions, by Public Collections, by L^itfdeSy and by 
Annual Subscriptions from the Trust-Funds of Chap^, on the 
pUn recommended by the said Committee, shall • be imme- 
dif^tdyinstituted. 

3. That the Preachers, in conjunction with a Deputation of 
iuch Trustees as are willing to concur in this Plan, shall ma^ 
applications in their ^respective Circuits for Subscriptions, in 
f^d of the said Fund, in the Month of February next, and in 
the same month of every succeeding year } at the cloi^ of 
which, a Public Collection for the same object shall be made, 
1^ has been usual, in all our Cha{)els, so as to afford to those 
wbo have not been vidividually solicited die opportunity of 
contributing to this good cause. 

4. That a Circular Letter, stating the objects and necessity of 
theOeneral Chapel Fund, be sent to the Trustees of every Chapel 
in the Connexion, in the Month of February at latest ; iod 
that they shall be respectfully and earnestly solicited to evince 
their readiness to concur in tiie measures tlius adopted for the 
general relief of the Body of Trustees, and for the permanent 
prosperity of the Work of God among us, by paying to their 
respective Superintendents some Sum, not less than One 
Gumea for each Chapel, and morey if the circumstances of 
their several Trust-Estatas will admit, to be applied to the 
assistance of those Chapels which most urgently need help 
from this Fund. 

5. That Thomas Marriott, Esq. and Mr. Georgb Marsdbn, 
both of London, shall be requested to act as Joint-Treasurers 
of the General Chapel Fund for the ensuing year. 

6. Tliat every Superintendent shall be required punctually 
to remit to the General Treasurers all the Monies which may 
be raised for the said Fund in his Circuit, whether privately or 
publicly, on or before the loth day of March in every year. 

7> That the Committee of Distribution, for 1819, shall con- 
sist of Messrs. James Wood, Henry Moore, Charles Atmore, 
James Bogie, Walter Griffith, Jonathan Crowther, John 
Gaulter, George Highfield, Richard Reece, Josq>h Eintwisle, 
John Braithwaite, Thomas Ingham, Richard Treifry, Valentine 
Ward, and David Rogers, with the President ojid Secretary of 
the Conference, and the Joint-Treasurers of the General Chapel 
Fund ; — and of Fifteen Trustees, (not being Travelliug 
Preachers,) to be invited by the President, who shall select 
for this purpose such Trustees, chiefly, as reside in the Districts 
most contiguous to the place wherc the Conference is to be held 

8. That the distribution of the Monies raised for the Chapel 
Fund shall be leift absolutely, for the first year, to the judg- 



1818.] ( 441 ) 

ment of the said Committee, on the plan recoipmended in the 
above-mentioned Report ; and that they be requested, at their 
Meeting in Bristol, on the Saturday before the Meeting of the 
next Conference, to draw up Rules and Regulations for the 
Distributions of future y^ars, to be submitted to the consider-^ . 
ation of the Conference. 

N. B. The Conference has also heard with satisfaction the 
Plan arranged, and presented for its examination, by some 
respectable Friends, the object of which is to afford further 
aid to the General Chapel Fund by the establishment of ^^ A 
Society, to be called The Methodist Chapel Benefit Society, 
*^ instituted for the Insurance,' on the usual Terms, of Chapeb, 
" Preachers' Houses and Furniture, and other Property be- 
** longing to Methodist Trustees and Societies." The Preachers 
and Trustees of the Leeds and Wakefield Circuits, several of 
whom have already devoted their particular attention to that 
subject, are requested to form themselves, as soon as conve- 
nient, into a Provisional Committee, for the Purpose of circu- 
lating the said Plan, and of carrying it into effect, if it shall 
appear to be generally acceptable to the Trustees, and to our 
Connexion at large. 

Q. 17. What shall be done to prevent the imprudent erection 
of Chapels in future ? 

-rf. The Minute of last year (see Minutes of 1817, p. 330,) 
respecting the Aimual Appointment of a Chapel-Building' 
Committee, without whose previous consent no Chapel is to be 
built or purchased, is confirmed; and every Superintendent is 
required to conform in all cases to the directions contained in 
that Minute. 

2. The Chapel-Building'Committee, for the ensuing year, 
are, James Wood> Richard Reecc^ Cleland Kirkpatrick, Miles 
Martindale, John Kershaw, and John Slack. — Brother Slack 
is appointed the Secretary of this Committee. All Letters on 
the subject of Chapels should be addressed to him, at the Me-- 
thodist Chapel in Leeds; and it is particularly requested that 
such Letters maybe sent post-paid* 

3. All proposed Enlargetnents of Chai)els, as well as new 
Brections, must be submitted to the investigation of the Com- 
mittee. 

4. No case shall be sanctioned by the Committee, unless it 
shall come before them as having received the previous appro- 
bation of the Quarterly Meeting of the Circuit, and shall be 
recommended either by the Annual District-Meeting, or at 
least by three Superintendents in the neighbourhood, \dio shall 
certify their approbation in writing. 

Q. 18. What further directions shall be 5>vexv ^«wc«^\vw^^^ 



( 443 ) [1818. 

regulation and pecuniary support of our Schools at Kingswood 
and Woodhouse-Grove ? 

A. 1. The enlai^ement of the School-Libraries beinp; deemed 
desirable, the Book-Steward is directed to transnut for the 
Library of each School a Copy of every Book publiriied m 
future at our Book-Room, on our own account ; and our 
Preachers, who publish any Work, are also requested to (lie- 
sent a Copy of it for each Library ; such presentation b^ng 
subject, however, to the opinion of the LocMsd Committees, as 
to their suitableness for the use of the Scholars. 

2. It is agreed, that, in future, all Parents who write to their 
Children at the Schools shall be required to send ail their 
Letters post-paid, 

3. The Annual Vacation of both Schools shall commence in 
future with the Second Week in the month of May. 

4. Considering that a regular and permanent income is of 
essential importance to these Institutions, and that, owing to 
the great additional expenditure occasioned by the increase in 
the number of Preachers employed in the Circuits, the Fund, 
by which the Schools are supported, (and out of which the 
usual allowances for the Education of Preachers' Daughters, 
and of such Sons of Preachers as do not go to the Schools, are 
likewise paid,) is now in an exhausted and embarrassed state, 
the Conference peremptorily requires the Preachers tit every 
Circuit to make respectful and earnest application to our liberal 
friends for Private Subscriptions, in the Month of October of 
every year, according to our existing Rule, and also to exert 
themselves in endeavouring to augment the amount of the 
Public Collections, to be made, in the same Month, in all our 
Congregations. All Monies thus raised are to be sent to Mr. 
Atmorb, (City-Road Chapel, London,) who is appointed the 
General Treasurer for the School Fund, for the ensuing year, 
on or before the 1st day of November, 1818 ; in order that he 
may have the means of paying the Money which it has been 
necessary to borrow for the Annual Allowances to Preachers' 
Children, and of furnishing to the Local Treasurers of the 
Schools the sums needed for their current expenses. 

5. It is agreed, that, until the School Futfd shall have been 
released, by that increase of its annual income which it is 
hoped will soon take place, from its present embarrassments, 
the sum of 600/. expended in the last year in the necessary 
Enlargement of the Premises at Kingswood, shall be borrowed 
by the Treasurer, on legal Interest, and Security for it shall be 
given by the Trustees of the Kingswood School. 

Q. 19. What is the judgment of the Conference on the state 
of the General Finances ot iVve CoYvw^dowV 



1818.] ( 44S ) 

A. 1. We acknowledge with gratitude to Ood, and to our 
Friends in every part of the Kingdom, the liberal Contributions 
made soon after the last Ck)nferenee, by which, in conjunction 
with the Subscriptions of the Preachers, the large Debt of 
1817> occasioned by the inability of the Contingeut Fund to 
meet the Ordinary and Extraordinary Deficiencies claimed from 
it by various Circuits, has been completely liquidated. 

2. We also perceive with much pleasure the measure of 
success which has already attended the Plans of Retrenchment 
adopted by preceding Conferences, and the increased exertions 
of our People, in the very considerable Reduction of the Claims 
now brought from many Circuits, a reduction amounting on 
the whole to nearlv Two Thousand Pounds, as appears uojxl 
the comparison of the whole Deficiencies of 181/ with those 
of thepresent year. 

3. The Regulations made last year, respecting Allowances 
for Preachers' Servants and Board, and other financial subjects, 
(see Minutes of 1817? p. 336,) are therefore confirmed. 

4. It is now further recommended, both for the saving of 
expense, and with a view to the health of our Preachers, and 
to the greater spiritual profit of our People in the Country 
Societies of the several Circuits, that the Single Preachers 
shall in general lodge at those Places in the Country where they 
have preached in the Evenings ; so that the Allowances for 
their Board in the Head Town, or other Principal Place of each 
Circuit, may not be unnecessarily increased by their too fre- 
quent return. 

5. The several District Meetings, to be held in 1819, are 
directed carefully to examine the state of those Circuits in their 
Districts which bring claims on the Contingent Fund for their 
Deficiencies ; and specially to report to the next Conference, 
whether any of them may, in their judgment, cease with pro- 
priety to be separate Circuits, and what Division of the Places 
may in that case be made among the neighbouring Circuits, so 
as to assist in the equalization of the local expenditure with 
the local income of their Districts. 

6. As a considerable augmentation of the Yearly Subscription, 
made in the Classes, in aid of the poorer Circuit, is deemed prac- 
ticable, if the urgency and importance of the Case were fully 
known to our People at large, it is agreed. That a Letter, ex- 
plaining the purposes and beneficial results of the Yearly Sub- 
scription, shall be drawn up and a copy of it sent, through the 
Superintendents and other Preachers, to every Leader in the 
Connexion, to be by him read and explained to his Class at the 
two Meetings immediately preceding the time when that S^V^- 
^cription is to be taken down on iVic C\a?»vV^.^Q^, ^^ c:^^^v^^ 



( 444 ) [1818« 

from the Members. And the Ck>nfereHoe specially re^uejits the 
active and afTectionate co-operation of the Clais-IiC^ers ia 
promoting this work of faith and labour of love, 

7. As to the present Debt of the Copuexion, which 1^ been 
contracted since the last Conference, notwithstanding the Re- 
trenchments already partially accomplished, by the ooatinued 
excess of the Expenditure over the Income of the Cpatipgent 
Fund, the Conference deems it highly desirable that it ahoold 
be met by immediate exertions, and not suffered to remain as 
a burden on the resources of future years. It is therefore re- 
solved. That the said Debt shall be divided among all the 
(Srcuits, in proportion to the number of Members ia Societv 
in each Circuit ; that the Preachers now appointed to each 
Circuit shall be made jointly and severally responsible for 
raising the quota of the General Debt which shall appear on 
this principle to be due from that Circuit ; — that whatever part 
of this quota they fail to raise by special applications to our 
Friends in their Circuits, they shall be cxj>ected to make up by 
their own Subscriptions ; — tliat the effort thus required for the 
extinction of this Debt sliall be made in all the Circuits in the 
Month of November or of December next; — and that the whole 
of the Monies raised for this purpose shall be remitted to Mr. 
Bl.\nshard, on account of the General Treasurer of the Con- 
tingent Fund, on or before the 1st day of January, 1819,* 

8. While the Conference have thus resolved to make provision 
for the liquidation of the present Deficiency, they also deem it 
to be at length absolutely necessary to take more effectual mea- 
sures than have been hitherto adopted, to ensure the prevention 
of any recurrence of Debt during the ensuing year ; and, after 
examining several proposals for that purpose, have resolved, 
That every District tvhichy after cvpemUng its own Yearly Col- 
lection J is still unahh to meet its own Ordinary Deficiencies^ shall 
for the ensuing year receive from the Contingent Fund vot morb 
THAN THREE FOURTHS of the suni tv/iich wos allotvcd to it from 
that Fund on account of the past year. The Chairman of 
every District shall take an early opportunity of informing the 
Circuit-Stewards of eveiy Circuit in his District, which has 
brought, or his likely to bring claims for Deficiencies, of this 
Resolution, which the Coiiference has been induced by neces- 
sity to adopt ; aiid shall exhort them to make, without delay, 
such local retrenchments or exertions in their own Circuits 
respectively, as will enable them to reduce their claims on the 
Contingent Fund within the limits prescribed by this Minute. 

* A Letter will be »ent to the Superintendents, in due time, to itate what is tht 
Quota of the (ienerai Debt lo be raiaecl in their Circuit! respectively. 



191<l.] • ( 446 ) 

BubJt is ondcntoocl, that if anv Circnit appear on examination 
to have a much ^ater or smaller burden of expense attached 
to it for this year, than was upon it for the last year, on account 
of the number of Families, &c. stationed in it, the Preachers 
and Stewards, when assembled in the District Meeting;, shall 
take such drcumstances into their consideration, and pro- 
portion the share of the allowance to such Circnits, cccording 
to eqnity ; but so tliat in the whole District, talcen collectively, 
the sum granted shall at all events be les3 by one fourth, than 
the sum received and distribntcd Bmoo? the Circuits of that 
District for the last year. — ^The case of the Allowance to be 
made from the Contingent Fund towards the expenses of the 
Second Welsh District is provided for by a special R^ulation. 
9. With respect to the plans, which have been frequently 
recommended, both by Preachers, wid by some of our re- 
Bpectablc Friends, for stationing the I'reachers' Families, as to 
tneir allowances on the Circuits, in a fair and equitable manner, 
according to the numbers and other circumstances of the 
Societies, the Conference are of opinion, that some such plan 
would be highly conducive to the comfort of those Preacners 
whp have large families, to the benefit of the Circuits, and to 
the improvement of onr General Finances. The Preachers in 
London are therefore desired to make immediate enquiries, by 
a Circular Letter to the Superintendents or otherwise, as to 
the whole number of Preachers' Children now to be provided 
for by the Conneidon, and as to other details connected witli 
this subject; and toascertain what Number of Members ought 
in general to be made responsible for the allowance to one 
child. They are further directed to acquaint the Superin- 
tendents with the result of these enquiries, Aud in the next 
District Meetings, at the time of the transaction of the financial 
business, during which the Circuit-Stewards are to be present, 
according to our rule, they shall be requested to take into con- 
sideration the propriety of making every District responsible 
for providing within itself, and liy its own local resources, the 
Allowances for sucb a number of Preachers' Children, as would 
fairly belong to it, according to the principle of proportion to 
Numbers in Society ; — leaving it, however, to the Preachers 
and Stewards assembled in eacn District-Meeting to modify the 
application of that gcjieral principle, from year to year, ac- 
cording to their discretion, by relieving the more burdened 
Circuits of their own District ; so, however, as that the whole 
Quota of each District for Children may be alwaj-s raised 
within itself. The opinion of the District-Meetings on the 
plan now proposed, shall be reported in their Minutes^ and. 
Drooght before the next Conference. 



( 446 ) [181& 

N. B. (1.) The Conference find it necessary again to require 
every Superintendent to take care that the rubiic CoUectioD, 
in aid of the Contingent Fund^ for the support and spread (jt 
the Gospel at Home^ be made in aU our Congregations^ and 
not later J on any account^ than the Second Sunday in Jufy : 
and every Superintendent is peremptorily enjoined to bring or 
send the sum so collected in his Circuit to the Treasurer of the 
Contingent Fund^ and to no other person, on the Jlrst day of 
tl^e Meeting of every Conference. These regulations have been 
found requisite, in order to prevent confusion, and to facilitate 
the financial business of the Conference. When the Superin- 
tendents do not themselves attend the Conference^ the Chair- 
men or Representatives are expected to be prepared in these 
respects to act for them^ and to pay in their Collections^ as 
^soon as called for. 

(2.) The Superintendents are desired to attend exactly Xo 
the Directions concerning the Four General Congregatwnal 
Collections^ ann^ially made among us, which were published 
at page 233 of the Minutes of 1816; and also to the Di- 
rections respecting the Three General Private SubscriptkmSf 
which will be found in the Minutes of 1815, p. 128. 

Q. 20. What is the deliberate judgment of this Conference 
respecting the Triennial Stations of our Preachers ? 

A. It is agreed, that in order to make our Regulation on this 
subject more strictly conformable to the provisions of Mr. 
Wbsley's Deed of Declaration^ (which is enrolled in Chanceiy, 
and constitutes the Legal Charter of Methodism ;) — and wiUi 
a view to the saving of expense, the improvement of our 
Preachers, and the spiritual welfare of our people^ — the Rule 
shall be as follows : 

*' Whenever it is proposed to station any Preacher in the 
same Circuit for a third year in succession, the reasons assigned 
for such triennial station shall be specially stated to the Con- 
ference, before the appointment is confirmed." 

N. B. Mr. Wesley's Deed of Declaration enacts, that ^^ the 
Conference shall not nor may appoint any person for more than 
three years successively to any Chapel.*' 

Q. 21. Is it necessary to enforce our Rules which regulate 
the attendance of the Preachers at the Conferences ? 

^. It appears that in some instances those Rules have not 
been duly observed. We therefore direct that the Revised 
Rules on this subject, as published in the Minutes of 1809, 
(Minutes, vol. iii. p. 92,) shall be annually read by the Chair- 
man in every District-Meeting, just before the List is made of 
Preachers who are allowed to attend the following Conference* 
The District-Meeting* aie vec^jilred to act strictly upon the 



1S18.] ( 447 ) 

Rules thus read; And every Chairman is directed to present 
to the President^ daring the first week of the Conference^ a 
List of any Preachers in his District, who shall have come to 
the Conference in violation of these roles^ or without the con- 
sent of the District-Meeting. 

Q. 22. What is the opinion of the Conference respecting Mr. 
Bbnson's Commentary on the Holy Scriptures, the publication 
of which has been lately finished ? 

ji. On the completion of this laborious undertaking, which 
was commenced at our request, and for the benefit of the 
Methodist Connexion, the Conference feel it to be a duty to 
return their cordial and unanimous thanks to Mr. Bbnson for 
the service which he has thus rendered to our body ; and to 
express their high satisfaction with the solid learning, the 
soundness of theological opinion, and the edifying attention to 
experimental and practical religion, which are displayed in his 
valuable work. 

Q. 23. Can any further improvement be made in the Bap- 
tismal Roisters of our Connexion ? 

ji. The Committee of Privileges are requested to consider^ 
whether, in addition to the present General Methodist Register 
of Births and Baptisms, now kept in London under their super- 
intendence and sanction, it may not be practicable and expe- 
dient to adopt some method, by which the Local Registers kept 
at our Country Chapels, may be regularly copied into the 
Books of our London Office, so as to be duly preserved and 
easily referred to. 

Q. 24. What improvement can be made in the General Ma- 
nagement of our Foreign Missions ? 

jd. The Conference having last year approved, and inserted 
in their Minutes, the outline of a Plan of a General fFesleyan 
3lissionary Society, and directed the Executive Committee to 
make much additional arrangements as might be necessary for 
perfecting it, and carrying it into full effect ; — ^the said Com- 
mittee, in pursuance of that direction, presented to the Con- 
ference a Report, containing such General Laws and Regn- 
lations for the said Society, as seemed to them best calculated, 
in the present enlarged and enlarging state of our Missionary 
concerns, to provide for their due management and permanent 
support. The Report having been read and considered, the 
Conference resolved. That it is expedient to adopt some plan 
by which the piety, talents, information, and influence of some 
of our respectable Friends, Members of the Methodist Society, 
not being Travelling Preachers, may be brought into co-ope- 
ration with the exertions of the Preachers, as Members of the 
Executive Missionary Committee in LondoTv*) ^xA ^Cw^V "^^^ 



( 448 ) [WW. 

Details of the Plan now presented by the Loi^don Committeey 
which Plan iucludes, among other particulars, a pTortoion fo 
such a co-operation^ shall he referred to a Committee of Ae 
Conference, who shall examine it, article by article, and le- 
port their opinion respecting it, and respecting any additioiis 
to it which they may deem necessary. — He Committee thus 
appointed having met, and recommended, with only a ftif 
alterations, chiefly verbal, the Plan presented by the London 
Committee, the Conference finally resolved unanimotolyj 
Tlhat the said Plarty as recommended by the Committee who 
hove examined it, he now adopted. — The Plan is as follows: 

LfOits and JRegulations of the General TFesleyan-Methodut 

3Iissionary Society. 

I. This Institution shall be designated The General fFeskytoi 
Methodist Missionary/ Society. 

II. The Object of this Society is to excite and combine, on 
a plan more systematic and efficient than has heretofore been 
accomplished, the exertions of the Societies and Congrega- 
tions of the Wesleyan-Methodists, (and of others, who are 
friends to the conversion of the Heathen World, and to the 
preaching of the Gospel, generally, in Foreign Lands,) in the 
support and enlargement of the Foreign Missions, which were 
first established by the Rev. John Wesley, A. M. the Rev.

IV. All Methodist Missionary Societies, which hare already 
beea> formed, and those which it is intended to form as soon

for the Districts in which they have been or may be formed.— 
All Methodist Missionary Societies already formed, or here- 
after to be formed, in the particular Circuits of any District, 
shall be entitled " Methodist Missionary Branch Societies" 
for the Circuity or (where there are or shall be more than one 
such Society in the same Circuit,) for the Ct(y, Town, or 
Fillage, in which they arc or shall be established. — ^And the 
formation of Ladies' Branch Associations^ and of Juvenik 
Branch Societies^ m conueYAow mWv \jMt ^^udUary Societies of 



1818.] ( 449 ) 

the several Districts, is also earnestly recommended, where* 
ever separate Institutions of that nature arc likely to be ad- 
vantageous. 

V. The Monies raised in any Circuit for the Methodist Mis- 
sions by Branch Societies or other Local Associations, and all 
other Monies, in whatsoever way collected, for the same ob- 
ject, shall be rq;ularly paid, once in every quarter or oftener, 
into the hands of the Treasurer of the Auxiliary Society for 
the District in which the said Circuit is situated, with the de- 
duction only of such sum as may have been disbursed for the 
incidental and local expenses of the Branch Society. — ^And the 
Treasurer of every District Auxiliary Society shall remit to the 
Treasurer or Treasurers of the General Society in London,

VL The Secretaries of every Branch Society, or other Local 
Association, shall forward annually to the Secretaries of the 
Auxiliary Society for their District, an Alphabetical List of all 
the Benefactors and Subscribers during the preceding twelve

stating at the same time what portion of the sums so received 
has been detained for local expenses, and what portion haa 
been paid in to the Treasurer for the District : — And the Secre- 
taries of every District Auxiliary Society shall also forward 
annually to tlie Secretaries of the General Society in London 
a similar List of the Benefactors and Subscribers in all tlie 
Circuits of their District, and an abstract of the accounts of 
the Auxiliary Society, shewing its gross receipts, its local pay- 
ments, and its remittances to the General Treasurers. 

VIL All Benefactors of Ten Pounds and upwards, and all 
Subscribers of One Guinea and upwards annually, to any of 
the Auxiliary or Branch Societies, or other Local Associations, 
in<connexion with this Institution, shall be deemed, in right 
of such Benefaction or Subscription, Members of the General 
Society.

Missions, whicli are now, or may hereafter be, carried ou 
under its sanctloii, and by the Preachers in connexion with it, 
and also the General Mmiagemeid of those Missions, according; 
to the Rules herein after provided. This Comnuttee shall

once a month or oftener for the transaction of business. Tlie 
President of the Conference for the time being, when present, 
and in his absence, the Chairman of the London District, or

the Week-Days, in general, to the seirice of the Missions ex- 
clusively'; being subject, however, to all the General Rules 
of the Connexion, respecting a rc^lar change of Station. 

XIV. As all the Missionaries supported by the Funds of this 
Society are to be Preachers in connexion with, and under the 
direction of, the Methodist Conference, and have, generally, 
a claim to be received an such into the Connexion at Home, 
on their return from Foreign Stations, the Selection of Mia- 
siouariea shall be made in the following way .- viz. 

1. Every Candidate must, in. the first instance, be recora-' 
mended by the Superintendent of the Circuit in which he 
resides, be approved by the Quarterly Meeting of that Circuity 
and be examined and approved also either by the Annual Dis-*. 
trict-Meeting, or, at least, by three other Superintendents in 
the neighbourhood. 

2. The List of Candidates for Missionary Service, who shall 
be thus recommended by their several Superintendents, QuBr.> 
terly-Meetings, and District-Meetings, &c. shall be ananaUy 
laid before the Conference ; and snch a number of those who: 
arc deemed most eligible, as are likely to be wanted in the 
course of the ensuing twelve months, shall be sent for to the 
Conference, and examined by a Special Committee in reference. 
to their missionary views and qiulifications. In cases where 
it may be found inexpedient for them to attend the Coeferenee, 
they shall be examined by as many of the Preachers of the 
London District as can conveniently assemble for that por- 
pose. 

3. Those Candidates who shall be approved by the Special 
Committee -at the Conference, or by the Preachers of the 
London District as before mentioned, shall be entered on the 
List of Received Missionarien, and be subject to the call of 
the General Committee for such Stations as may need supply 
or reinforcement. 

4. When Preachers, already engaged as such in the Con- 
nexion at Home, offer themselves for Foreign Service, they 
shall be personally examined in reference to that subject, l^ 
a Special Committee at the Conference, or, if that be imprac- 
ticable, by as many of the Preachers of the London District 
as can conveniently assemble for the purpose, and shall, if 
approved, be also placed on the List of Received Missionaries. 

5. If it shall at any time appear to a majority of the General 
Committee in London, that there are reasons why any Preacher 
called out from the said List of Received Missionaries, and 
proposed for a Foreign Station, should not proceed upon that 
Service, they shall have a right to suspend tu& «nMjav\n«£CL\. vk

( 452 ) [1818. 

a Missionary, until the ensuing Conference shall spedaUv 
consider and determine on his case. 

6. If, in the intervals of the Annual Meetings of the Con- 
ference, the List of received Missionaries shall be exhausted, 
and more Missionaries shall be urgently wanted, — or if an 
immediate supply shall be needed for some Station of pecQlitr 
difficulty, or requiring peculiar qUaliticatious, — the Genenl 
Committee shall be at liberty to employ such Picrsons as they 
deem suitable. Provided always^, Thatsuch Persons shall have 
been previously recommended i)y their respective Superin- 
tendents, by the Quarterly Mectuigs of the Circuits in which 
they reside, and either by the District^Mectings, or by three 
other neighbouring Superintendetts, — and also previously exa- 
mined and approved by as many of the Preachers of the London 
District as can conveniently assemble, who shall be considered, 
on such occasions, as exercising, on behalf of the Conference, the 
slimc functions which would iu ordinary cases belong to the 
Special Committee appointed dining the sittings of the Con- 
ference, accordhig to the 2d and 4th Articles of this Rule ^- 
Provided also. That this right of the Committee to employ Mis- 
sionaries not entered on the Annual List, shall be exercised only 
in case of pressing necessity, and not without the consent 
of the President of the Conference for the time being. 

XV. The Plan for stationing the Missionaries, supported by 
this Society, shall be aimually drawn up by the Secretaries, 
lud before the General Committee in London, and, if approved 
by them, recommended to the Conference. 

XVI. The Trial of Missionaries, who may at any time be 
accused of misconduct, or of having deviated from the Doc- 
trines and Discipline of the Connexion, shall in all ordinaiy 
cases be left with tlic Foreign District- Meetings to which rack 
Missionaries may at the time belong, according to the Genenl 
Rules and Usages of the Methodist Conference. But the Con- 
ference shall have, as heretofore, the right of recalling any 
Missionaiy, whether put on his IVial by a Foreign District- 
Meeting or not, whenever there shall appear to them to be 
rc&son ior such Recal. And, in the intervals of the sittings of 
tlie Conference, the General Committee in London shall pos- 
sess a similar power of Recal, and of putting any Missionary, 
so recalled by them, upon his Trial before the ensuing Con- 
ference, or, iu case of necessity for immediate decision, before 
the Preachers of the London District. 

XVII. For the satisfaction of the numerous Countiy Friends 
of this Society, on whose continued co-operation so much de- 
I>ends, and many of whom are in the habit of attending tbe 
Annual Meetings oC the Coufcceucc^ ic is agreed, that t Special 



18180 C 453 ) 

Meetinj; of the General Committee stinll be held, once a year, 
at the place where the Conference ix held, at nine ti'clock iix 
the morning of the Friday preceding tlie last Monday in July. 
To this Meeting the Conference shallj from year to year, invite 
Nine Preachers, and Nine other Mi'inhers of the Mcthodibt 
Society, resident in the neiglibourhood, who tire not Travelling 
Preachers, together with the Treasurers and Secrctariea of the 
difTercnt Auxiliary and Branch Societies in the Vicinity, and 
such other leading Country Friends of the Methodist Missions 
as can ronveuicntly attend. The Persons thus assembled, in 
conjunction with those regular Members of the General Com- 
mittee who can be present, shall review the Minutes of the , 
Financial Business transacted during the preceding year, and 
examine the General Acconuts of the State and Expenditure 
of every Mission. Any suggestions for the improvement or 
cxtciisiun of the Missionary Concerns of the Connexion, which 
this Special Meeting may deem it expedient to recommend, 
shall be minuted by the Secretaries, and promptly coD&idered 
by the Conference, or at the subsequeut regular Meetings of 
the General Committee in London. 

XVIII. It is earnestly recommended to the Members of this 
Society, and of the Auxiliaiy Societies, and other Local Asko- 
ciations, in connexion with it, to consider it as an indispen- 
sable part of their daily Christian duty, to pray to Almigiitv 
God for a blessing upon its designs, and upoti those of all 
similar Societies of other Denominations, engaged in the 
Propogatioa of the Gospel of Jesos Christ; nnder the full 
conviction, that unless He " prevent us in all our doings with 
his most gracious favour, and further us mth hia continual 
help," we cannot reasonably hope for a succession of Persona 
of proper spirit aud (jualifioatiuiis for the Otlice of Missionaries, 
uor expect their labours to be crowned with the desired suc- 
cess. And it is furlJier hoped that with the same view, all 
tlic Members aud Friends of t!ii.s Society will sanction, in their 
several oeighbourhooda, by their preseucc and influence, the 
Monthly Missionary Prayer-Mcctuigs, which should be held 
in every Chapel in the Methodist Connexion, according to the 
Kccommeudation of the Confercoee, published in their Miuutcs 
for 1815 ; at which Meetings, Extracts from the Missionary 
Notices, containing recent intelligence from the Foreign Sta- 
tions, may be read, and united supplications offered up For the 
salvatinn of the World.

for the ensuing year, formed according to the Provisions of 
the Plan adopted in the preceding Minute?

The Address of the Irish Conferbkcb to the British 

Conference. 

Beloved Fathers and Brethren, 

Through the tender mercy of the Lord, we have been 
prcsencd during another year of painfiil exercise. We adore 
the (gracious Providence which hath kept us ; and our hearts 
frlow with {(ratitude, in the midst of trials, for the favours we 
imvc received. 

W^ith more than ordinary feelings of brotherly affection we 
again address you, and rejoice in the growing confidence we 
have as to }xyor lively concern for our welfare. This confidence 
lias been greatly strengthened by the reading of your last 
Address. The sc^itiments which it communicates are deeply 
engraven on our hearts. Amidst our tribulations we are filled 
with comfort, by the tenderness of your sympathy, and the 
cordiality of your Christian atfection. The declaration made 
by your President, that we were your Children, and that you 
would not forsake us in the hour of our distress, and your 
alfectioiiate concunence in this declaration, afforded us the 
liveliest joy. We also gratefully express our acknowledgments 
for the arrangement you have been pleased to make wiUi your 
Book-Steward in our behalf. 

We were deeply concerned, during the political agitations 
which, afflicted your country, lest any of your dear people 
should have been drawn aside from the truth of the Gospel, 
and from their habitual attachment to our beloved Monarch 
and incomparable Constitution. We rejoice in the prompti- 
tude and success of your ministerial efiforts to *' deliver them 
from so great a death." 

With pleasure we behold the rising pro$perity of your trade, 
and the cheering prospect of an abundant harvest ; knowing 
that temporal good things contribute to the support and exten- 
sion of the Work of God. 

In the order of a mysterious, yet adorable Providence, wt 
have, dear Fathers and Brethren, been called to " endure a 
great fight of afflictions." Twenty-six of our Chapels were 
shut against us ; our characters were maligned ; aud (for no 
other reason, than because we granted the administration of 
the Christian Sacraments by our own Preachers to a large 
number of our People, who had long petitioned for them,) 
we were represented as unfriendly to the excellent constitution 
of the Empire in Church and State. And, what we deplore 
more than any thing else, many of our dear People, the seals 
i>{ our ministry in the Lord, have Ije^u \mVw^^\Vj ycAn^^V^^ 



( 468 ) [I8ia 

decline for the present any farther connexion with us. In the 
inidtit of our diiFiculties, God, who comfortetb thoae who are 
cast down, has been graciously pleased to raise up many sym- 
pathizing friends, who have eiicoun^;ed and streugthened as 
Hi the Lord, and with generous liberality have come forward 
to assist us iu meeting our pecuniary difficulties. Our financial 
aQairs, however, are still exceedingly embarrassed ; and we 
are called to endure privations of the most serious kind. We 
would say more on this subject, but our respected Prksidbnt, 
and Brother Bunting, together with our Brethren, Messrs. 
^TEBLB and Tobias, can fully explain every thing to you re- 
lating to our affairs. In November, 1816, when aome of our 
Chapels were wrested from us, a Committee of our Friends 
was formed in Dungannon, who appealed to Chancery in vin^ 
dication of our rights ; and though for some time we were 
unwilling, through our love for Peace, . to engage in l^^al pro- 
peedings, yet iu this we now plainly discover the Providence 
of God. By the late Decision in the Rolls Court, in the case 
pf the London-Deny Chapel, our rights have been fully 
established ; our ceconomy is better explained and understood ; 
and the union and confidence of our friend are considerably 
strengthened. With pleasure we mention to you the faithful 
labours and valuable ser\'ices of the above-mentioned Com- 
mittee ; the result of which is of great importance to our 
whole Connexion. 

Notwithstanding the painful agitations of many parts of our 
Body, in the last year, God has been graciously pleased to 
pour out his Spirit ; many sinners have been awakened and 
converted ; and some of those who left us have already re- 
turned again. The labours of our Missionaries also have been 
greatly blessed. Still, we have to deplore a decrease, on the 
whole, iu our numbers ; occasioned partly by the reudings of 
some Circuits, since our last Conference, and partly by emi- 
grations to the Canadas and other parts of America, and by 
the afflicting ravages of the Typhus Fever. In one Circuii 
alone. One Hundred and Twenty eqiigrat^, aud ^bout One 
Hundred died. Nevertheless we are encouraged in the Ix>rd, 
and earnestly look forward for the fulfilment in our case of the 
following Scriptures ; *^ Thereforcy thus saii/i the Lardy wha 
redeemed Abraham^ concerning the house of Jacob ; Jaajh 
shall not nato be ashamed^ neither shall his ftue wax jntle ; hut 
when he seeth his children, the work of mine handy in the nmht

earsy The place is too strait for mty give place that J inay 
dwell:' 

\Vc gnitefully acknowledge your kindaess in favouring us 
with the assistance of our highly-respected iind valuable 
Friends, Messrs. Gaultbr and Bunting. While they have 
entered with all the sympathy of Christian affection into our 
distresses and sorrows, we have reaped much pleasure and 
profit from the wisdom of their counsels in Conference, and 
from the zealous exertions of their highly respectable and use- 
ful talents in the pulpit. The manner in which our President 
has discharged the duties of his otiice has given us the highest 
satisfaction. We unaniniously request that you will appoint 
two of your Body to visit Ireland about two Months previous 
to our next Conference, to make the tour of the principal 
places in our Island, from which in our present state we anti- 
cipate the happiest results. 

Our beloved Brother Steet^b has been chosen our Represen- 
tative to you, and Brother Tobias is requested to accompany 
him. In these Brethren we repose the fullest confidence; 
and we have no doubt but you will affectionately receive them 
ill the Lord. 

Notwithstanding the efforts which have been made to dis- 
unite us, never did we at any former period possess greater 
unanimity of sentiment, or cordiality of aft'ectifm, than at the 

{)rescnt Conference. Under the gracious influence of our 
iving Head, we are resolved to give ourselvt^s wholly to the 
work of the Ministry ; to be " instant in season and out of 
season ; to reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with all long-suffering 
and doctrine." 

And now, dear Fathers and Brethren, we commend you to 
God, and pray that his presence and blessing may be with you 
in all your deliberations for the good of his Church ; and 
^* that when the Chief Shepherd shall appear ye may receive 
» crown of glory, which fadeth not away." 

Signed in behalf and by order of the Irish Conference, 

WILLIAM SMITH, Seerelart/. 
PoNFERENcE-RooM, DubUn, July II, 1818. 

The Answer of the Qritish Confei^nce to the Adpress 

from the Irish Conference. 

Beloved Brethren, 
Your affectionate and interesting Address we have received 
with great pleasure. We have tenderly felt for you hi the 
painful trials with which you have \jttca c*fc^e\fisA ^\iiTvs\s^ Nic*^ 



( 400 ) [1818. 

last year. But we rejoice that you have been so supported 
aud preserved, that you have not only been patieut but thank- 
ful. Be assurepi that the growing confidence in U8, which you 
express, excites in us a growing affection for you ; and that 
we are unfeignediy glad that our sympathy has m any measure 
contributed to your relief and comfort. 

\^lth much grief we learn, that, m the great fi^ht of affile-* 
tion which you liave been called to endure, vanous Chapels 
were illegally shut against you, your ministry obstructed, and 
your proceedings grievously misrepresented. Aud our sorrow 
IS increased, because we are satisfied that these injuries were 
not provoked by vou, but resulted from the prejudices or 
the intolerance of those who persisted in refusing to a large 
number of their Cluistian Brethren the privilege of having the 
Holy Sacraments, instituted by the Lord, administered to 
them by their own Preachers, in the way for which they had 
so long and so earnestly petitioned. 

It affords us the highest satisfaction to be assured, that 
while your mistaken opponents have represented you as hostile 
to our Constitution in Church and State, your conduct has 
sufficiently proved the injustice of the charge. And whilst we, 
as well as you, lament most deeply that many of the seals of 
your ministry in the Lord have been induced to renounce con- 
nexion with you, we rejoice to find, that, in the midst of 
these diliiculties, God has raised up Kympathizing friends, who 
have encouraged and strengthened you, by the generous libe- 
rality with which they have come forward to assist you. W'a 
jEtre not surprised that, notwithstanding the help which you 
have received, your embarrassments are still very great, and 
that you are likely to be for some time longer under the neces-^ 
sity of making very painful sacrifices. Such is our feeling 
upon this point, that nothing but the pressing nature of our 
own financial diiBculties should prevent us from affording you 
efficient relief. Both you and ourselves must endeavour to 
profit in the school of trial in which we are, in this respectj^ 
at present placed. Temporal privations have often been sanc- 
tified to the good both of individuals and of churches. Let 
us pray and labour that this may be the case with us. 

The late Decision of the Rolls Court, in the case of the 
London-Derry Chapel, by which our rights have been fully 
vindicated, is of general importance to our Connexion, and 
ought to excite i>eculiar gratitude towards Him by whom kings 
reign, and princes decree justice, The friends who compose 
the Dungannon Committee are also entitled to our warmest 
thanks and ailectionate remembrances. We trust that the 
Yfry best use will be made of this memorable decision, an^ 



1818.] ( 461 ) 

that all the other Chapels, of which yon were unjiutly depriTed^ 
will now be promptly and peaceably restored. TTie most en- 
coura^ng part of your Address is that which states. That, 
during the last year, God has been pleased, in many parts of 
Ireland, to pour out his Spirit; so that Sinners have been 
awakened, and Backslidci's recovered. We rejoice especially 
in the success of your Missionaries ; while we cannot but de- 
plore, in conjunction with you, the decrease in the total num- 
ber of your Societies, occasioned partly, as you state, by the 
Typhus Fever, and by Emigrations, and partly by the divisions 
made in various Circuits. In circumstances so distressing to 
true Pastors, we are liappy. to perceive that your hearts are 
fixed, < resting in God, and trusting in his great and precious 
prdmistes. 

Your ackTiowledgment of the pleasure and benefit which 
you have reaped fmm the judicious counsels, the zealous exer- 
tions, and the ministerial services of our very valuable and 
nnruch respected Brethren, Messrs. Gaoltkr and Bunting, is 
what we were prepared to expect, from the pleasing experience 
which we have so long had of tl^eir attachment to our Body, 
and general usefulness. With their visit to Ireland they ap- 
pear to have been highly gratified ; and have convinced us, oy 
the manner in which they speak of you and your People, that 
you have a deep interest in their affectionate remembrances 
and prayers. 

Your choice of Brother Steele to represent you in our 
Conference has been perfectly satisfactory to us. Both he and 
Brother Tobias have met with a cheerful and affectionate re- 
ception among us. And during our various sittings, their 
conduct has been altogether brotherly and christian. 

It is with gratitude to the God of Grace and Love that we 
inform you, that great peace and harmony generally prevail 
among us in England ; and that we have increased and incTcas- 
ing prospects of usefulness, both at home, and in various 
stations occupied by our Foreign Missionaries. 

As the President of your next Conference, we have appointed 
our own President, Mr. Edmondson. And we have requested 
our worthy and beloved Brethren, George Marsdbn and 
RoBEKT Newton, to accompany and to assist him in rendering 
to you all possible Christian and ministerial service ; especially 
in the Formation or Anniversaries of your Auxiliaiy and 
Branch Missi(maiv Societies. 

And now. Brethren, we commend j'ou to God and to the 
word of his grace, which is able to build you up. We pray 
that both you and we may possess and display still more and 
more, in spirit and in practice, the wisdom vj(v\eVi<i*yKk^S^Vt<^xxv

iibove. Let your tnodcration be known unto all men : The 
Lord is at hand. Avoid, as much as you properly can» all 
further controversy on the points lately disputed among you. 
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome eril with good. 
Steadily and peaceably pursue the path of duty in which the 
Lord has led you. Preach the Word, faithfully, zealously, 
apd indefatigably. Rush into every open door, and cry, 
*' Behold the Lamb of God wiio taketh au'ay the sin of the 
world/' Be steadfast and unmoveable, always abounding in 
the Work of the Lord, and your labour shaU upt be in vain iu 
the Lord. Both as Christians and Ministers, let your conver- 
sation be as becometh the Gospel of Christ ; so that both those 
pf us who come and see you, and others who hear of your 
affairs, may rejoice to know that you stand fast in one spirit, 
strittHg together for the hope of tibe Gospel. 

Death has lately made more than ordinary ii;iroads on our 
Connexion. Many excellent ^Brethren, both young and aged^ 
have been called from the labours of earth to the rest of 
hea^-en. These visitations of Providence ai-e solemnly admo-
