This church, located in Chester county, S C, is among the earliest founded in the Southern section of the United States, and its history is full of general as well as local interest A glance at the book convinces us that the author has been at great pains to procure all the facts connected with the struggles of the pioneers of the church in the Carolinas. ' while the stvle is graceful and entertaining. The last half of the volume is devoted to biographical sketches of the four pastors, Bev. John Jioyse, Rev. J ohn Hemphill, JJ. JJ Rev. Warren lenniken and Rev. Robert Wilson Brice, who had charged of the congregation in the order named. . it anything is needed beside the his tory or the cnurcn as written oy Mr. Lathan, to show the influence ltnas ex erted on the religion of the Carolinasit is afforded by the number and character of the ministers of the gospel born and partly reared rn the congregation of Hopewell, The list embraces tne fol lowing names: Joseph Lo wry, D.
