Three. Charleston Boys of Long Ago.
(By Rev. Samuel A. Weber in The
Sunday School Visitor.)
Willidm May Wightman graduated
at the Charleston College, in South
Carolinat, in 1827. lie was the only
member of the graduating class. Of
others who had been members of the
class, I mention two: James C. Fur
man and Edgar T. luist. These three
were Charleston boys, and each was a
pious member of the Church: Buist, a
Presbyterian; Furman, a Baptist; and
Wightman, a Methodist. The fathers
of the first two were distinguished
pastors of leadign Charleston Church
es., IWightman's parents were Metho
dists, his mother an Englishwoman,
who in her childhood had been petted
and fondled by John Wesley.
All three %went at once into the min
istry, and all of them early distin
guished themselves as eloquent and
learned preachers of their several
churches. Each was In due time made
a doctor of divinity-a distinctly dis
criminating honor in those days. In
addition, Wightman was made an
IL.D. by his Alma later.
It was my privilege to know per
sonally and very pleantly' each one of
these great men. Dr. Buist was my
co-pastor in Greenville in 1870. He
was then probably a little past his
prime, but was popular in the Pulpit
and much beloved as a pastor and a
citizen. I shall never forget his in
structive sermons and his beautiful
and spiritual prayers. -ils effusive
fraternity was tnfailing. Or. Fur
man was president of the Furman
(Baptist) University, at Greenivillk.
while I was th. Miethodist pastor
there. lie was at that time in the
mellow maturity of his nascent old
age, a ripe scholar, a twise church
leader, and a preacher of marvelous
felicity of diction and of genuine
spiritual power. ,He was always my
favorite preacher of his denomination.

was my college president for three
years and a half at IWofford College.
My youthful admiration of him grow
into still greater admiration as I knew
him In later life.
I have mentioned all these facts and
opinions In order to mention the in
teresting circumstafice that ' these
three .preachers, who were 'boy friends
and college mates in their native city,
.afterwards became presidents of three
leading colleges, located In three ad
joining counteis In Upper South Caro
lina. -Dr. -Buist was president and In
some sense founder of the Presby
terian College at iLaurens, while Drs.
Wightman and Furman laid the foun
dations respectively of Wofford Col
lege and Furman University, which
two Institutions have been greatly in
fluential in the Methodist and Baptist
Churches of South Carolina.
At a revival meeting In Spartanburg
while I was a Wofford student there,
I heard Dr. Wightman, while counsel
ing early piety to a congregation con
sisting largely of studentsfil refer to
the circumstances detailed above. He
referred to the fact that the three
pious boys of his college class were
then at the head of the three Institu
tions of learning in three adjoining
Counties. I have heard all three of
these good men refer with manifest
satisfaction to the story which I have
