AUTHOR'S PREFACE.
  ________ I
HAVE
frequently been solicited by relatives and friends to write a brief history of my past life, but never felt seriously inclined to do so until the year 1858, when I wasrequested by my friends in the West to furnish a series of articles in relation to my past life,for a religious paper entitled,
The Youth's Instructor 
, published at Battle Creek, Mich. Incompliance with their wishes, fifty-one numbers were issued and published in said paper,ending in May, 1863.As these numbers are about exhausted, we again comply with the request of friendsto furnish them, with additional numbers, for publication in book form.JOSEPH BATES.MONTEREY, MICH., MAY 1, 1868.
EDITOR'S PREFACE.
  ________ T
HE

The author was one of thosenoble and godly men who though "dead yet speaketh."The editor of this work was an intimate and close fellow-laborer with Elder JosephBates for more than a quarter of a century. And it is with great pleasure that we give his lifesketches, with introduction and closing remarks, in this volume.J. W.B
