PREFATORY NOTE TO VOL. III.



These volumes are the largest books, — the most thoroughly
filled up with important matter condensed to the utmost,
all secondary matter being put in small type, — sold any-
where for the same price ; and yet we have not been able
to bring the history so low down in this volume as we
desired and expected, simply because the stream has widened
so much more as it flowed on than we anticipated. Never-
theless, we have extended it so far as to cover the two
greatest crises of Canadian Methodist history — the passing
out from under the jurisdiction of the General Conference
of the M. E. Church of the United States, and the Union
with the Parent Conference in Great Britain.

The author does not expect that his treatment of the
latter event — the Union — will please extreme persons on
either side of the question to which it has given rise ; but
he has treated it with the calmness with which he thinks
an historian ought to write, and that he has told the honest
truth.

He also anticipates as an objection, that he has divided
the history of the Union measure, — that is to say, its
inception at the Conference of 1832, and its consummation
at the Conference of 1833, — by recording the usual current
Connexional events of the Conference year 1832-33, before
treating of the reception of the overtures for Union by the
British Conference, and the final ratification of the Articles



iv PREFACE.

by the Canadian Conference, in October, 1833; but he
could not change the original cast and character of his
work (the biographical and detailed being the principal
features originally intended) to meet the fancies of those
who have not taken time to examine the structure of the
book ; yet if any one wishes to read the whole question
uninterruptedly, let him begin the perusal at page 355,
paragraph 323, and read on to page 363, to the close of
paragraph 343 ; and then let him turn over to page 404,
paragraph 1, and read on to the close of paragraph 5, on
page 411, and he will have gone over the whole subject
consecutively, and will be able to determine for himself it3
legal aspects. If we are not greatly mistaken, the candid
reader will rise up from the perusal with the conviction
that the Canada Conference acted from the purest of
motives and in the strictest constitutional rnanner.

Some inaccuracies have unavoidably occurred, and there
would have been more only for the patient revisal of the
sheets by Dr. Wood.
