Excerpt from Biographical Sketches and Sermons, of Some of the First Ministers of the Associate Church in America: To Which Is Prefixed a Historical Introduction, Containing an Account of the Rise and Progress of the Associate Church for the First Half Century of Her Existence in This Country

But have we not good reason to apprehend, that there are many facts, the knowledge of which is necessary to a com plete and correct history of the Associate Church in America, which are not 'now within the reach of all her members? Much less can those without her communion be supposed to be acquainted with her history. Indeed, any opinion which such may form of her distinguishing principles, either in dac. Trine or discipline, might be unjust towards her, and conse quently injurious to themselves, and even to the community at large. As an illustration of this remark, the reader is refen red to the attempt that was made a few years since, to give a sketch of the me and progress of the Secession in Scot land, in the Biblical Repertory, one of the {nost respectableand influential religious journals now published in this coun try. Though the many errors and mistakes which appeared in the articles referred to, were met, and ably corrected, in a series of papers published in the Religlous Monitor, for the year ls36 - 7 - yet, how many might, and doubtless did, read and give credit to the errors, who never will see the correc tions? And in every erroneous statement of even a bistori cal fact, concerning any portion of the church of Christ, which receives cmdlt to any extent, the general cause of truth suffers.
