Description

In 1836, Rev. George Howe, distressed that many young men lacked interest in pursuing a career in the ministry, wrote an appeal to these youth to consider answering the call to preach. In addition to the appeal, the book also contains statistical tables on the number of Presbyterian ministers added each year in South Carolina for the years 1803, 1809, 1813, 1814, 1819, 1825-1835, a table showing the increase or decrease of ministers 1803-1835, a table showing the increase of church members 1826-1834, and a table showing the number of ministers and vacant churches in 1834.
