“JOSEPH is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well ; whose
branches run over the wall: the archers have sorely grieved him, and shot
at him, and hated him: but his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his
hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob.” GEN-
ISIS xlix, 22 24.

THE FOREIGN MISSIONARY SETTLEMENTS, AND THE UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA, WHO, UNDER GOD,

CLAIM A FILIAL AFFINITY WITH

THE REV. JOHN WESLEY, A. M.

THIS SMALL VOLUME, compiled with a design to commemorate that extraordinary revival of primitive faith and piety,

which, arising amidst many discouragements, and assailed in its progress, by every form of opposition, has, nevertheless, by its direct and indirect agency,

spread " a sweet savour of Christ"

through so large a portion of the globe ; and with a design also, in some humble degree, to promote among Christians of every name the cultivation of

those divine charities, which, in spite of all the varieties of human circumstances,

and all the fluctuations of human affairs, shall finally unite the whole fraternity of man in one

happy bond of amity and peace,

is gratefully inscribed.
