The First Baptist Church in Providence, Not the Oldest of the Baptists in America (1850), by Samuel Adlam, is the eighth section in our latest book - An Anthology of the Early Baptists in Rhode Island. Samuel Adlam (1798-1880), pictured, was the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Newport, RI, from 1849 to 1864. A short quote from his introduction, "I now leave what I have written to calm, reflecting, impartial men; their verdict will at last prevail, and to it I cheerfully submit."
