ional type, whilst my mother was a descendant of a long line of Congregationalists, of whose Church she was an earnest member. My father died when I was eight years old, leaving my mother with four children, one son and three daughters, to rear and educate, which she did after a very motherly fashion; and her widowhood extended for the long period of thirty eight years. Our school education in those days was scant and inferior in quality. I got so far as to read and spell fairly well, and to write a very indifierent hand. Part of this instruction I obtained in a Church Sunday-school, so had an early opportunity of being informed as to the theories, doctrines, ceremonies, Observances, and practices connected with the Church of England, which, I may here add, failed as time went on to yield me satisfaction. My connection with the Church continued for several years; first as a scholar, and then as a member of the church choir. But 'my first serious difficulty with, and estrangement from, the Church arose from my observation of the inconsistent, unseemly, and, I may add, ﬂagrantly immoral conduct of the clergy of my acquaintance, which for several reasons I cannot pass over in silence.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
