Entered, according to Act of Congress, in the year 1874,
By A. H. REDFORD, Agent, in the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington,
THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, SOUTH.
We esteem it our duty and privilege most ear. nestly to recommend to you, as members of our Church, our FORM OF DISCIPLINE, which has been founded on the experience of a long series of years; as also on the observations and remarks we have made on ancient and modern Churches.
We wish to see this little publication in the honse of every Methodist; and the more so, as it contains the articles of religion maintained more or less, in part or in whole, by every reformed Church in the world.
Far from wishing you to be ignorant of any of our doctrines, or any part of our discipline, we desire you to read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the whole. You ought, next to the word of God, to procure the articles and canons of the Church to which you belong.
We remain your very affectionate brethren and pastors, whu labor night and day, both in public and in private, for your good.
JOHN C. KEENER.
