The Journal of the Rev. Francis Asbury, Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, from August 7, 1771, to December 7, 1815.
New York: N. Bangs and T. Mason, 1821.
Following John Wesley’s example, Francis Asbury began keeping a journal of his thoughts and travels. Although Asbury’s aim was to publish his journals annually, circumstances prevented him from accomplishing this task. Prior to Asbury’s death in 1816, only excerpts from the journal had appeared in print. The first full publication of Asbury’s journal was accomplished in 1821.
