ACU Special Collections acquired this copy from the David Earl and Katherine Neely Burford family (Brownsville, TN), August 18, 2021. Its provenance begins with a C. A. Smith sometime in the middle or end of the 19th century. The Burford family believes the publication was inherited from his parents, Guy Vernon Burford and Fanny Cooke Burford (also of Brownsville), but is unaware of the origin and date of acquisition. It was then inherited by their daughter, Dana Burford Williams, and her husband, Jack Thomas Williams (Brownsville, TN), July 22, 2002. It was then Inherited by their sons, Bradley Burford Williams (Nashville, TN) and Wesley Lyle Williams (Bartlett, TN), February 14, 2021.

The family wishes to thank Abilene Christian University, the Margarett and Herman Brown Library and its staff for their interest in preserving and sharing this rare, historical publication from the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement of the early 19th century.
