Excerpt from The Young Christian Merchant: A Memoir
Several reasons have led to the publication of this memoir. First: The uniform and consistent piety of the subject, the exhibition of which, it is believed, will refresh and encourage Christians. Second: The great variety of... incident which abounded in his life, making, it is thought, an interesting volume for the general reader. Third: Although many interesting memoirs of pious young women have appeared within a few years, the memoirs of pious young men are rare. It is hoped and believed that this example of Chris tian character may have a favorable in¿uence on young men in business.
Young persons, reading the biography of ministers and others who lived surrounded by a religious atmos phere, are apt to say, We expect such persons to be devoted Christians; but how are young men, who go abroad in the world, exposed to all the multiplied temptations of the times, to pass through the fire with their garments unchanged? In the narrative which follows, we see an example of one who encountered all these difficulties, and who was enabled, through grace, to overcome them. As an example, therefore, to those in like circumstances of trial, these pages are submitted, with the hope that they may prove a true incentive to high Christian character.
