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."

2 HAWES Help of the Lord, the Seal of the Missionary Work. A Sermon, Prea
19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON-MARVIN 
HAWES, JOEL. The Help of the Lord, the Seal of the Missionary Work. A Sermon, Preached at New Haven, Ct., Sept. 8, 1846, Before the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions at Their Thirty-Seventh Annual Meeting. By Rev. Joel Hawes, D.D. Pastor of the First Church, Hartford, Ct. Boston: Press of T. R. Marvin, 24 Congress Street. 1846. Octavo. Disbound pamphlet side-stitched with new linen thread, light foxing, the number "4" written in old pen at top of title. Collation: 1-44. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-32pp. Joel Hawes 1789-1867, Congregation minister, graduated from Brown 1813 and studied theology at Andover. "He was Ordained in 1818 at the First (Center) Congregational Church in Hartford, Ct., where he spent his entire career. Hawes, though suspicious of some of its excesses, especially rampant emotionalism, was a proponent of revivalism... Hawes presided over a number of revivals in his congregation; Charles Grandison Finney preached there on several occasions. His prorevivalist views placed Hawes in opposition to one of his Congregational colleagues in Hartford, Horace Bushnell... Hawes was among those who brought Bushnell to trial for heresy."--Balmer: Ency. of Evangelicalism, p. 273. We offer Hawes' sermon before the American Board. Hawes reviews the history of the board and applies the text of I Samuel 7:12, "Hitherto hath the Lord helped us" to the history of the Board.
