Excerpt from Judso the Pioneer Others have labored, and the writer of this little book has entered into their labors. The original Memoir, by Doctor Wayland; the fine Life of Judson, by his son Edward; the Life of Ann Judson, by J. D. Kwles, were the principal books consulted. The description of the Salem Ordination is principally from an article by Dr. James M. Hill, and much of the sequence of events leading to the organization of the Triennial Convention was furnished by Rev. A. W. Smith, of the New England Baptist Library. From these and all other available sources the endeavor has been made to select those scenes and incidents which reveal the character of Adoniram Judson.
