DANIEL ROWLANDS AND HIS HUES;

OR, ENGLAND A HUNDRED YEARS AGO.

BY THE REV. J. C. RYLE.

[graphic]

[NE of the greatest spiritual champions of the last century, whom I wish to introduce to my readers in this paper, is one who is very little known. The man I mean is the llev. Daniel Rowlands of Iinngeitho in Cardiganshire. Thousands"of my countrymen, I suspect, have some little acquaintance with Whitefield, Wesley, and Romaine, who never even heard the name of the great apostle of Wales.

That such should be the case need not surprise us. Rowlands was a Welsh clergyman, and seldom preached in the English language. He resided in a very remote part of the principality, and Wdly ever came to London. His ministry was almost entirely among the middle and lower classes in about five counties in Wales. These circumstances alone are enough to account for the fact that so few people know anything about him. Whatever the causes may be, there are not many Englishmen who understand Welsh, or can even pronounce the names of the parishes where Rowlands used to preach. In the face of these circumstances, we have no.right to be surprised if

his reputation has been confined to the land of his nativity.

In addition to all this, we must remember that no biographical account of Rowlands was ever drawn up by his contemporaries. Materials for such an account were got together by one of his sons, and forwarded to Lady Huntingdoa Her death, unfortunately, immediately afterwards, prevented these materials being used, and what became of them after her death has never been ascertained. The only memoirs of Rowlands are two lives, written by clergymen who are still living. They are both excellent and useful in their way, but of course they labour under the disadvantage of having been drawn .up long after the mighty subject of them had passed away.* These two volumes, and some very valuable information which I have succeeded in obtaining from a kind

* The memoirs of Rowlands to which I refer are two small voluniea by the Rev. John Owen, Rector of Thrusslngton, and the Rot. E. Morgan, Vicar of Syston, both lu the county of Leicester. The private information which I have received has been supplied by a relative of the great Welsh apostle, though not in lineal descent, the Rev. William Rowlands of Fishguard, South Wales. Some few facts, it may be interesting to my readers to know, come from an old man of eighty-live, who, when a boy, heard Rowlands preach.
