Klappentext

Excerpt from Souvenir of the 15th Annual Session of the N. B. And P. E. I. Conference of the Methodist Church: Held in the First Methodist Church, Charlottetown, P. E. Island, June, 1898

Mr. Dawson at once exerted himself to promote the cause of religion -and his name is intimately connected with the rise and progress of Methodism in Prince Edward Island. He fiund four members of the church in Charlottetown - Benjamin Chappell and his wife, Joseph Robinson and Mrs. Smith - and proved a most important auxiliary to the small and struggling cause. Services were frequently conducted by him in town, sometimes in the hired room, at Samuel Hutchinson's, near the jail, Eownal Street; but generally at the house of Mrs. Smit' w! Lch stood on the site of the present residence of Miss Morris, and adjoined the residence and Post Office of Mr. Chappell, Water Street. He also ruled every settlement on the Island, holding services among the people, who hailed his coming with great delight. The forests were then in their primitive grandeur; there were no roads, few horses, and no carriages of any kind, no bridges; and the faithful itinerant in the midst of hardships and privations, now altogether unknown, did the work of an evangelist, and made proof of his ministry. His youngest son, referring to his father's faith and work, observes that no obstacle seemed so great as to hinder him from performing what he considered his duty. Although a man of strong constitution, the exposure and long journeys were too heavy a tax on his physical strength, and after a short illness. In the 42nd year of his age, he closed his useful and honorable career, happy in God and full of hope and peace. Mr. Dawson was a pious and intelligent man, of liberal education, whose practical ministry was very acceptable to the people, and was rendered the happy means of deepening and spreading the work of God. His name is still recalled with grateful emotion. For after he had in his own generation served the counsel of God, he fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
