Thirty Years in the Itinerancy, by Wesson Gage Miller.


These memoirs, by Wesson Gage Miller, deal primarily with the early history of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Wisconsin. Miller took charge of the Brothertown (sometimes found as Brotherton) mission and was later appointed pastor at Green Lake, Watertown, Milwaukee, and Fond du Lac. He discusses many of the contentious issues within the church, especially slavery, as well as providing information about Lawrence College, major disease epidemics, and Native Americans.
