Collection Description

Biographical Note

The Bible’s owner is identified by the initials H. N. M. In the inscription which these initials follow, H. N. M. indicates that he was as a Methodist minister who served at St. Francis Street Church in Mobile, Alabama, in 1846.

Scope and Content Note

The inscription on the front cover of the Bible details how its owner had the Bible divided into two volumes and interleaved with notepaper. He then “began a more critical reading of the Scriptures.” H. N. M. states the following about his annotations: “Made at various times, the notes will be found to vary through all stages of immaturity of style, knowledge, & judgment.” This volume is presumably the first of the two volumes, the second one probably consisting of the New Testament and H. N. M.’s notes.

Because H. N. M. identifies himself as the minister of St. Francis Street Church in Mobile, Alabama, this Bible may be of interest to those researching Methodist thought in the nineteenth century.
