Aikin's Christian Minstrel (Phila, 1846) was the second but first successful attempt to substitute 7 shapes for the traditional 4 shape fasola hymnals. It "endured for decades and went into as many as 171 editions. Aikin's choice of simple elementary forms for his three additional note-heads has been shown to be fortunate by the fact that his shapes are used today by all the seven-shape rural song-book publishers in the South and have been the standard notation in that territory for over fifty years. ...In Aikin's Preface he stated clearly his hopes that his book would supplant the `trashy publications' which had up to that time, `supplied the churches, especially of the South and West...' He also hoped that his new notation would swell the numbers of those who could read music easily. He explained that he had reduced the varieties of musical measure to three, two-two, three-two, and six-four time; that he had excluded the minor scale from consideration in his rudiments as an unnatural, impractical, confusing, and really non-existent phase of music; that he had but one sort of clef for all four parts, one that has G in the middle (third line) of the staff; and that he had expressed the key of the tune by words and not by symbols."--Jackson: White Spirituals in the Southern Uplands, p.320-21.

"More than a quarter of century has elapsed since the organization of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The men who were prominent in the General Conference of 1844, the extrajudicial legislation of which body resulted in the division of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States into two separate and distinct ecclesiastical organizations, with but few exceptions have passed away... Since the division...a new generation has come upon the scene, who are not familiar with the circumstances that led to the separation. The object of this work is to place in a permanent and enduring form the proceedings of the General Conference of 1844, so far as they bear upon this questions, together with all official documents and papers necessary to a full understanding of the reasons by which the Southern Delegates in that body were governed in the declaration they made that "a continuance of the jurisdiction of that General Conference over the Conferences they represented, was inconsistent with the success of the ministry in the slaveholding States.""--Preface.
