Page 208 - Nobly sustained as the government has been by all the churches, I would utter nothing which might in the least appear invidious against any. Yet without this it may fairly be said that the Methodist Episcopal Church, not less devoted than the best, is by its greater numbers the most important of all. It is no fault in others that the Methodist Church sends more soldiers to the field, more nurses to the hospitals, and more prayers to heaven than any.
Page 134 - We declare that we are more than ever convinced of the great evil of the African slavery which still exists in these United States...
Page 190 - We therefore affectionately admonish all our Preachers and people to keep themselves pure from this great evil, and to seek its extirpation by all lawful and Christian means.
