God the Refuge of His People, from the message by Smith to the S.C. General Assembly, December 7, 1850, Smith, Whitefoord, Rev.
102 Smith, Whitefoord, Rev. God the Refuge of His People, from the message by Smith to the S.C. General Assembly, December 7, 1850
South Carolina House of Representives, South Carolina 1850 1st Edition Thus Manila Folder or Binder Good with No dust jacket as issued 
No cover, text complete, a few pages loose from stitching. This imprint is an original extract from the Message of his Excellency, W.B. Seabrook the Governor of South Carolina in the S.C. Senate Journal, 1850. Gov. Seabrook and other Southern States had been considering the affects of the Northern States actions against the South and the southern movement to "disunion". "One such slight by the U.S. Congress happened in 1841. He proposed that South Carolina receive her share of the proceeds from the sale of public lands as provided for by Act of Congress in 1841 and hitherto declined for constitutional reasons. The governor dwelt at considerable length on the differences between North and South, and the evidence for his conclusion that the South could no longer hope for security of life, or liberty, or property within the Union. He concluded: “The time, then, has come to resume the exercise of the powers of self protection, which in the hour of unsuspecting confidence, we surrendered to foreign hands...... While adhering faithfully to the remedy of joint State action for redress of common grievances, I beseech you to remember, that no conjuncture of events ought to induce us to abandon the right of deciding ultimately on our own destiny.” “ By legislative resolution, Friday, December 6, was designated as a day of fasting and humiliation, on which the clergy of South Carolina should call together their congregations to ask divine guidance for the General Assembly in devising measures conducive to the best interests and welfare of the state. On that day the Reverend Whitefoord Smith conducted religious services and delivered a sermon before the members of the Assembly. The sermon was largely a defense of the institution of slavery." (The Secession Movement in South Carolina, 1847-1852) "Born in Charleston in 1812, Smith he took his name from the family name of his father’s mother. His great-great grandfather, Sir Adam Whitefoord, had been a Scottish baronet, and his great-grandfather, Col. Charles Whitefoord, was an officer in the 5th Regiment of Foot. He attended the city schools in Charleston before moving on to South Carolina College. He was a student in Columbia during the presidency of Thomas Cooper. While at college, he found that he could not accept all of the teachings in the “Shorter Catechism” and left the Presbyterian Church of his ancestors for the Methodist Church. Methodism was, at the time, a denomination of the common people" (.wofford.edu/from_the_archives) This imprint is one of 2000 printed after the S.C. General Assembly meeting where Dr. Smith spoke. Rare. In archival sleeve for preservation. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 16 pages

"Richard Watson (1781–1833) was a British Methodist theologian who was one of the most important figures in 19th century Methodism.Watson was born in Lincolnshire and entered the Methodist itinerancy in 1796, serving as President of Conference in Britain in 1826 and as secretary to the Wesleyan Missionary Society from 1821 to 1825. In Britain, he was a leading opponent of slavery.Watson was a gifted writer and theologian. In 1818 he wrote a reply to Adam Clarke's doctrine of the eternal Sonship of Christ; Watson believed that Clarke's views were unorthodox and, therefore, not faithfully Wesleyan. In 1823 he began to publish his Theological Institutes, which remained a standard for many years. It was the first attempt to systematize John Wesley's theology and, by extension, Methodist doctrine. In 1831, he wrote a well-regarded life of John Wesley.We provide delivery tracking on US orders." (Wikipedia) ; 7.50 X 5 X 0.50 inches; 323 pages;
