The main difficulty lay in the collection suitable materials.... Most fortunately, the family of Rev. Stith Mead placed in his hands the manuscript Journal of that eminently useful and extending through a period of forty years. This was found to contain a record of facts in connection with early Methodism of the greatest value, besides copies of documents of an official character that had escaped the notice of every other writer. This Journal was destroyed, with the library of the author, in the great fire at Richmond in April, 1865... The work has been carried forward in the midst of the daily engagements of the regular pastorate, and though nearly completed before the outbreak of the late civil war, it has since been revised with care... W.W.B. Ashland, Va., 1870."
