b. June 19, 1834 Parents: John & Eliza Grandparents: James & Sarah “Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth” Is. 45:22 January 6, 1850 Cottage at Teversham I Peter 2:7 “Unto you therefore which believe, he is precious”
He sat on one side of the table-pew, and I on the other side. I shall never forget it. He looked so white, and I thought to myself he'll never be able to preach— what a boy he is! I despised his youth, you know, and thought all this while the congregation was singing. Then, when the hymn was over, he jumped up and began to read and expound the chapter about the Scribes and Pharisees and lawyers; and as he went on about their garments, their phylacteries, and long prayers, I knew that he could preach. All along I was fully persuaded in my own mind that he would not remain long at Waterbeach. I could see that he was something very great, and was evidently intended for a larger sphere. Age 17became pastor of small Baptist church at Waterbeach October 1853Baptist Union Sunday School meeting
December 18, 1853 New Park Street Chapel January 1854 becomes Pastor Reprinted 1689 2 nd London Confession I have thought it right to reprint in a cheap form this excellent list of doctrines, which were subscribed to by Baptist ministers in 1689. We need a banner because of the truth; it may be that this small volume will aid the cause of the glorious gospel by testifying to its leading doctrines.
