Picked this up for five bucks tonight. Not bad for a 177 year old book. I wasn't familiar with the subject until I did a little research.
James Brainerd Taylor entered the preparatory academy at Lawrenceville, New Jersey at the age of eighteen in 1819. He engaged in missionary work while in school and college, and gained many converts. After his graduation at Princeton in 1826 he studied at Yale divinity-school, taking an active part in the revivals in the neighborhood and in the south, where he fell ill. He died of tuberculosis at the home of John H. Rice in 1829. Soon after, John H. Rice began writing this memoir but soon after also died. His brother, Benjamin H. Rice, finished the memoir and published it in 1833. There is a monument of Taylor in New Jersey that still stand to this day.
Is there any value? Any info is welcomed and appreciated. Thanks for lookin!
