Second edition of John Wesley's rendition of the life of the legendarily pious theologian Thomas Halyburton (sometimes given as Haliburton), son of a Scots nonconformist minister. Halyburton's writings, all published posthumously, were promoted by Wesley, who provided the introduction for this volume and some editing of Halyburton's autobiography.
