The only apology which the compiler offers for the appearance of this volume, is the almost constant inquiry made respecting the extraordinary man whose history it records. This suggested the desirableness of publishing a brief Memoir of his character and labors, that American readers might be made more intimately acquainted with one of whom they had heard so much : after all, it is to be regretted that the portraiture here exhibited is but a very faint resemblance of the original. This work is principally taken from the Welsh Memoir, published in the principality soon after the death of Mr. Evans, to which is added a variety of incidents well known to the writer, and which occurred within the limits of his acquaintance of some thirty years with Mr. Evans. The candor of the reader is requested on behalf of the style in Javhich the book is written, and particularly to the translation of those portions of Mr. E.'s writings which occur in the course of the work, for it was thought best to render them in

[blocks in formation]

language as nearly as possible to that which he would have used himself had he written in English.

That the Divine blessing may attend this humble attempt to magnify the grace of God, which was so eminently displayed in the subject of these pages, shall be the constant prayer of the compiler.

D. P. NEW-YORK, Nov. 20, 1843.
