Excerpt from History of the Discipline of the Methodist Episcopal Church

Some might expect, in such a work, a discussion of the reasons for certain rules, and the interpretation to be put upon them. There can be no doubt that a know ledge of both these will be promoted by the informa tion which is here communicated, as to the time when, and the connection in which the rules were introduced, and the changes they have undergone. But to set forth his own Opinion on points of discipline was no part of the author's plan; nor would it have become either his age in the ministry, or his station in the Church. His object will be accomplished, if he shall promote, in any degree, an understanding of the Discipline of the Church, and an attachment to those great principles of its-economy, which, amid all the changes of form, have remained the same from the beginning, and which have proved so signally successful in spreading Scrip tural holiness over these lands.
