Thirty-two years after his passing, Daniel Davis Lewis (1777-1849) was remembered in Cathcart’s Baptist Encyclopedia as “an able preacher, full of the Spirit and Word of God, and a successful pastor of the churches for whose welfare he labored. He healed church wounds, built up disciples in the glorious doctrines of grace, led throngs of converts to Jesus, and enjoyed the warm affection of large numbers. His memory is precious still in the church for whose eternal interests he employed his time and talents, and his fervent prayers." --from the opening paragraph of the essay on Daniel Davis Lewis in A Noble Company, volume 7. This is an illustration from this chapter of the Plainfield Meeting House.
