The American Baptist Missionary Union was formed out of Adoniram Judson converting from Congregationalism to Baptist on his voyage to India in 1812. His need of support spurred a number of small Baptist missionary societies to form. These were consolidated in 1814 as "The General Convention of the Baptist Denomination in the United States of America for Foreign Missions. It was reorganized in 1846 after the Southern Baptist had withdrawn the previous year, as the American Baptist Missionary Union." This volume is record of the Union's missionary activities around the world in 1877-78, including Burma, India, China, Siam, Japan, and Congo & Uganda missions, as well as European missions in France, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Finland & Russia.

1832 pamphlet 19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON-PEIRCE 
ANONYMOUS. A Plain Guide to Baptism; Being a Short Treatise upon Subjects and Mode. By a Servant of Jesus Christ, Who has often been invited to preach to Baptist Churches, but always debarred from their communion!!! [8 lines scripture] Boston: Press of Peirce & Parker, No. 9, Cornhill. 1832. Duodecimo.

Pamphlet in probably later plain paper wrapper, untrimmed with page edges tattered, light to medium foxing, small tear in inside margin of title, 3cm tear in text of one leaf repaired with archival rag paper. Collation: 1-26, 32. Pagination: (1) title, (1) copyright, [3]-28pp. OCLC locates: Emory U Pitts; U Ill.; S Bapt Theol Sem; New Orleans Bapt Theol Sem; Amer Antq Soc; Kent State U; Presb Hist Soc. Amer. Imprints 32-14283 adds Cong. Libr Boston; Zion Research Libr Brookline; Brown U.

The anonymous author (probably a Congregationalist) begins: "This treatise is designed to present in a concise form and plain manner, some of the most correct and convincing views of the subject of Baptism... And now understand what the subject in debate is. It is not whether adult believers, who have not received baptism, should be baptized. Nor is it, whether baptism by immersion is an acceptable and valid mode. Upon these points, we have no dispute with our Baptist brethren. But what I shall endeavor to establish is this: That the children of believers should be dedicated to God in baptism; and That baptism by sprinkling is a Scriptural and valid mode."--p.3.

If the basis on which the system rests were the real atonement of Christ, applied by the gracious influences of the Holy Spirit--if such were the structure and relation of the system, to be it would seem much less hostile to the spirit and tenor of the Scriptures."--Introduction, p.7.

John Foster (1770-1843) English Baptist minister & author. "In 1792 he commenced preaching, and officiated among the Baptists at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Dublin, Chichester, Downend, near Bristol, and Frome in Somersetshire, in succession. Obliged by a glandular affection of the neck to discontinue preaching, he retired to Stapleton, near Bristol, and here he devoted himself to literary composition, for which few have been so well qualified.... In 1819 sic [1820] appeared the Essays on the Evils of Popular Ignorance... This the author considered his best work, and is the one by which he wished his literary claims to be estimated. The fact of its not having sold so well as his other Essays, was, he used to say, a proof of Popular Ignorance. The author was not the only admirer of his performance: 'A work which, popular and admired as it confessedly is, has never met with the thousandth part of attention which it deserves. It appears to me that we are now at a crisis in the state of our country and of the world, which renders the reasoning and exhortations of that eloquent production applicable and urgent beyond all power of mine to express--Dr. J. Pye Smith'"--Allibone's Critical Dict. of Engl. Lit. and British and American Authors, p.621. "He [Foster] became involved in a controversy between the Serampore missionaries and the committee of the Baptist Missionary Society, strongly siding with the missionaries... Foster's opinions were often controversial. He believed that `churches are useless and mischievous institutions, and the sooner they are dissolved the better' (letter, 10 Sept 1828). Though a Baptist minister, he never once administered baptism; nor did he believe in eternal punishment or the rite of ordination. Politically, he was a republican, and `never ceased to regard royalty and all its gaudy paraphernalia as a sad satire on human nature' (letter, 22 Feb 1842). He favoured parliamentary reform, Catholic emancipation, and popular education, and opposed the corn laws. The Bristol Mirror called him `an unaffectedly great and good man'.--Thomas Hamilton, `Foster, John (1770-1843)', rev. Jessica Hinings, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/9961, accessed 21 Feb 2013] (17667)

Hubbel Loomis (1775-1872), Congregational and then Baptist clergyman; married Jerusha Burt of Longmeadow, Mass. "He was licensed as a Congregationalist minister in 1801. His first pastorate was in Willington, Conn., where he continued twenty-four years, uniting with his pastoral duties the work of teacher, one of his pupils being Jared Sparks, afterwards so eminent as president of Harvard College... In later years of this pastorate, as a result of earnest study of the scriptures with reference to questions of denominational difference, he became a Baptist, and united with the Baptist church of Willington... In 1829 Mr. Loomis removed to Illinois... settled in Upper Alton, and then founded the seminary which in 1835 became incorporated as Shurtleff College... He was remarkable for conscientiousness; an ardent advocate of human rights, and a warm friend of moral reforms..."--Cathcart: Baptist Ency., p.715.

John MacGowan (1726-1780) Scottish particular Baptist minister. "He was converted among the Wesleyan Methodists, and by them ordained to the ministry... he left the Methodists and untied with the Congregationalists; light continuing to increase upon him, he followed the Saviour in immersion. In July, 1767 he was ordained pastor of the Devonshire Square church, London. He continued in this office till his death."--Cathcart: Baptist Ency., p.730. "Macgowan was probably more effective with his pen than in the pulpit, certainly if the number of titles authored and the frequency of their reprinting be any criteria. He had a considerable following in America as well as in Britain, and his works were translated into Welsh and Gaelic."--Charlotte Fell-Smith, `Macgowan, John (1726-1780)', rev. J. H. Y. Briggs, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/17516, accessed 3 May 2013] In this work full of satire and irony, Macgowan mercilessly castigates Oxford University for expelling the six young men "for praying, reading, and expounding the Scriptures." Although listed in Green's bibliography of Anti-Methodist publications, the author is critical only of Oxford University & the Church of England. He does mention in his preface: "Concerning the Sermon I would have it observed, 1. That I pretend not to justify any part of the Methodists conduct, besides praying to God, reading, expounding the scriptures, and singing hymns, &c."
