PREFATORY NOTE


ENGLAND in the time of John Wesley was a country of small towns and villages.  Roads were few and bad, and means of intercommunication primitive and mostly expensive.  There was, therefore, an isolation and remoteness about provincial life which we in these times find it difficult to realise.  But the majority of the inhabitants of Great Britain lived in these same self-contained and unchanging townlets; and this story is written to illustrate the rise of Methodism, by showing how that great movement came to a representative small borough, and how it affected the lives, characters, and interests of the inhabitants.

PATRICROFT, 1901.
