loeo one of his doar littlo ones, which sealed
oonviotion upon his heart, and caused him to
seo and feel himself to bo a lost and ruined
sinnor in tho sight of our blessed Jesus, and
If he lived and died ill that ho must bo inevitably
lost and wndono forover. So ho nt
onco eommcnood to seek Jesus in tho pardon
of his sins, and found Him in tho conversion
of his soul to b) altogether lovely, and the
chicfcst among ten thousand.
Brother Oaky joinod the Baptist Church at
Enon-in I'ickcns Conntv. 8. C.. on tho 28th

his church from the day he joinod it, np to
the August terra of his churoh, when ho was
licensed to exercisc Lin gift in public by prayer,
exortation or othorwise, as he might
chooHo. Tho ohurch bcoamo satisfied ho was
a man of more thnn ordinary talent, and concluded
to call a presbytery preparatory to his
ordination. The presbytery consistod of
Brethren Jnmcs Wilson, of Anderson County
and \V. B. Singleton, and John Ariail, of
Pickens. They met at Enon churoh, August
torin of 1802, and ordained him to tho minis
try, to preach the Everlasting Gospel to a
sinful find dying world. After his ordination
lie commenced the work with nil his soul,
mind nnd strength, from that very day with
more than ordinary success, nnd we have no
hositency in saying tlmt we helievo that lie
was tho moans in the hands of his Heavenly
Master of bringing many souls into tho church
militant here on earth,?both in the Army o!
Virginia and in the churches ho had the
honor to supply, up to I ho day that ho wiie
attacked with the fatal disoaso which termin*
atcd his exielenoo here on earth.
