PREFACE.
TEE name of William Miller, of Low Hampton, N. Y., is too
well hwn to require an extended introduction ; but, while well
known, few men have been more diversely regsrded than he.
Those who have only heard his name associated with all that ie
hateful in fansticism, have neoeasarily formed opiniona respecting
him anything but complimentary to hie intelligence and sanity ;
ht thme who knew him better, esteemed him ae a man of mom
than ordinary mental power, - a cool, ~agaoious,and honest rca-
mer, an humble and devout Christian, a kind and lgectiomts
friend, and a man of great moral and aocial worth. Thnt the
impartial reader may be able to form a jut estimate of one who
I haa ocanpied ao oonepicwus a position before the publio, the
following pages are mpiled.

mnal acquaintanoe, hie biographer haa been enabled to embody
much important inhrmation respecting him. It has not been
deemed neceesary to edogiee him, nor to apologize for him. Hit
acts and life are permitted to stand forth, divested of the veil of
partiality, or of prejudice. His opinions on all subjeotcl are
i expd in his own language, - having himself narrated the
i workings of his own mind, at the various periode of his life. Hit
1 the nlh of his daily life; a trace the manner in whioh he haa
j urived at his oonclusione ; to follow him into hi cloeet and placee.
' of retirement; to learn the various workinge of his mind through
a long series of yeam, and to ecan closely hie motivea. A knowl-
edge of these can be arrived at only by a ample collection of facts
and documents illustrative of hie history. By 111extracts from
hi unstudied correspondence, by his publiehed writings, by nar-
rations of interviews with him, by the free use of hi ppera
md memorandums, and by the tastirnony of impartial witneseoa
