Excerpt from Methodist Worthies, Vol. 2: Characteristic Sketches of Methodist Preachers of the Several Denominations, With Historical Sketch of Each Connexion Ebenezer Evans Jenkins, brother of David James Jenkins, m.p. For F almouth, and uncle of E. Jenkins, author of Ginx's Baby, The Devil's Chain, and other works, was born at Exeter, l0th May, 1820, and was educated at Mr. Gould's Grammar School, Exeter, where, by diligence and perseverance, he laid the foundation of that knowledge which has enabled him to pursue a most honourable career in literature. Although his pro gress in learning justified his being sent out into the ministry without what is known as a theological training, yet the careful manner in which he has cultivated his own mind, and used every opportunity for increas ing his knowledge, shows what can be done in that department without the useful facilities afforded by theological training institutions. At the age of fifteen years, he gave his heart to God, and set himself diligently to the use of the means of grace in the Methodist society, of which he early became a member. There are still living in London some who remember his first efforts made as a local preacher in Devon shire forty years ago. His successful labours in that service led the Rev. Henry Castle, the superintendent minister in the Teignmouth circuit. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
