goodness, told in plain, unvarnished English, he will not be disappointed. When I received from the gifted author the record of his ' travel's history," I intended to write his Life, but death came and found us, not him, unprepared; and so, under the constraint of other and pressing duties, my purpose was reluctantly abandoned.

Such is my admiration of this noble man, and such my deference to what I am sure must be the desire of his friends, that I have preferred to let him tell in sim- ple phrase the strange story of his struggles and tri- umphs; and if its perusal should give the reader half the pleasure it has been to me to prepare it for the press, I shall not have labored in vain. The book is intended to be a Memornal Volume, and especially one to encourage young men who, under adverse circum- stances, are striving to qualify themselves to preach the gospel. Bro. Allen was always in warm and loving sympathy with these-so much so, that he was rightly called the young preacher's friend. It is a pleasure to say that such is the veneration of the publishers, The Guide Printing and Publishing Company, for the memory of our deceased brother, vi. PREFACE.
