REMINISCENCES

BY C. A. LAMB.
Written June, 1874

There happened to be a somewhat prominent Methodist minister present, and my meat proved quite too strong for his Arminian stomach and it caused him to vomit up considerable bile. In short, the man came out somewhat violently against my doctrine, and in a week or so it was Brother Comstoek's turn to visit and preach to the people there, and his ears were filled with a report of my sermon and its effects upon the Methodist man, and he took for his text: "Those that have turned the world upside down have come hither also. " And he gave the Arminians a double portion in due season. But I must hasten lest I make my narrative too long. In my visit to Farmington, I soon felt that the spirit was moving upon the hearts of some at least. In February two were added by baptism, and a number by letter; and from that time on for six years, the church received frequent accession by baptism and by letter. The last I baptized in that church was July 9th, 1837—three in number. In Bedford I baptized twelve before there was a church organized. They united with a conference. A church was recognized the first Wednesday in June, 1832, and my brother Aroswell was its first pastor. After him -Brother Curtis, whose praise is in all the churches, followed. In laboring statedly in Plymouth I soon found a number of members which I advised to unite in church relation, and a council was called not far from June 1830, and by it they were recognized as the Baptist church of Ply-moth I think their first settled pastor was Elder Carpenter; subse-quently Elder Wm. Grow. About the beginning of the year 1832, the brethren in Auburn were recognized as a Baptist church. Who have been its pastors I do not reollect.
