Publisher: Whittet & Shepperson, Printers, 0 Richmond, VA

Book. Book condition: Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall No date; ca. early 20th century. "Through his masterpiece and best monument, "The Days of Makemie, ' published by the Presbyterian Board of Publication in 1885, Dr. Bowen created a new interest in Rev. Francis Makemie, the chief founder of the Presbyterian Church in America, and thereby started the movement which resulted in the erection twenty-three years later (1903) of the splendid granite monument to Makemie, in Accomac County, Virginia.. After his researches above, made when he was pastor of certain of the Makemie churches in that part of the Eastern Shore, Dr. Bowen returned to pastoral work in the West and far South, and when he had done much further ministerial and literary work there and was retiring from his labors and enjoying in his old age a well-deserved rest, was recalled in 1908 to resume his work in the Old Mother Church at Rehoboth, Maryland, not far from the Makemie Monument. Since his last return to the Eastern Shore, he delivered in 1908 the chief address at the dedication of the Makemie Monument, and also in 1909 delivered the chief address at the dedication in the upper part of Worcester County, Maryland, of a Monument to Colonel John Postley, the first to leave a permanent endowment fun d for the cause of public education in that county. Dr. Bowen has of late in addition to these two notable addresses written sometimes seriously but more often for his own amusement and that of certain of his friends, many verses concerning Makemie and his early churches and of certain people and events in this part of the Eastern Shore.." 203 pages.
