1889 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT AUTOGRAPHED LETTER SIGNED BY SAINT JOHN NEW BRUNSWICK METHODIST CHURCH MAN WRITING THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH TO THE SON OF A FORMER PASTOR1729
On offer is an interesting manuscript letter handwritten by George A. Henderson dated Saint John (New Brunswick) May 29, 1889 regarding the Methodist Church's history in Saint John. He writes, most likely to Francis Fidler of Philadelphia), about the Centenary Methodist Church of Saint John completing its' 50th year of service. He says he was assigned the duty of writing about the Church since its' inception in 1839, but has decided to go back farther in time to the beginnings of Methodism in Saint John. He asks Mr. Fidler about his father, who was also a Pastor, if he kept a diary or any other correspondence which may have mentioned any St. John names. Mr. Henderson also writes that a great fire in 1877 destroyed almost all paper of value relating to his research and is reaching out for information to help him. It turns out Mr. Henderson was able to gather enough information to write Early St. John Methodism and History of the Centenary Methodist Church St. John N.B. This was a Jubilee souvenir. Jubilee was held for the 50 year anniversary of the Centenary Methodist Church. This was published by G.E. Day in 1890. Save for some general ageing and some splits to the fold the letter is G+.
