William Ellmore remembers J. W. McGarvey

Reminiscences of Bro. J. W. McGarvey.

“In response to your request I will say that I regard President McGarvey as the best teacher I ever knew; the best preacher I ever heard, as the best scholar the Reformation has produced. For information correct, important, presented in the fewest words, and in the plainest way, McGarvey was the man. The spirit, too, which breathed through his words was truly refreshing. Future generations will assign him a place above Campbell. Outside the family, I think he has had more influence over my life than all other men combined. Wm. Ellmore. “Bismarck, Ill.”
