Right Rev. NATHANIEL BOWEN, D. D.
BISHOP OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH,
IN THE DIOCESS OF SOUTH-CAROLINA.
Right Rev. & DEAR SIR,
TO whom could I dedicate the following Pages, with so much propriety, as to one, who has been called, by the unanimous suffrage of Clergy and Laity, to preside over the Church whose history they record ?
In offering to your acceptance the first Historical Acci unt of a part of the Church in Anserica, permit me to express the satisfactin I dorive from the opportunity, thus afforded me, of making this profession of my respect and esteem.
The early History of the Church in Carolina, is full of instruction to the Clergy of the present day. It must excite in our bosoms, the most ardent gratitude to God, and the sincerest reverence for those holy men, who braved the storms of the Ocean, and the terrors of the Wilderness, to preach the Gospel of a crucified Redeemer. It must excite our admiration and praise, that the banner of the cross was displayed by those hum
ble servants of God, in a savage land, surrounded by perils to which we are strangers, and destitute of those comforts which we enjoy.
Surely then, we, to whom a better lot has fallen, have abundant reason, from their example and success, to exert all the faculties of our bodies and our minds, to render unto God " true and laudable service,” in the salvation of the souls of men.
| Influenced by your example, and encouraged by your godly co’insel, the Clergy of your Diocess, I confidently trust, will walk “ worthy of the vocation wherewith we are called,” and “ feed,” with anxious solicitude and affection, the “sheep” and the “ lambs” committed to our care, by the great “ Shepherd and Bishop of our Souls."
May the Piety, Wisdom and Zeal, which, under God, have extended the borders of our Zion, in this portion of the Redeemas Kiegdom, be favourably accepted at the Throne of Grace: And that you may long be preserved to thaistrate the precepts of our Holy Religion, and to didora the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things,” are the sincere and fervent Prayers of
Your faithful Son
Charleston, March 15th, 1820.
