"Caleb Thaddeus Phillips (1841-1911) was born at Somerville, [or perhaps Wakefield] New Brunswick, educated there at the public schools and at Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and ordained in 1871. He engaged in pastoral and missionary work in New Brunswick and as "Thaddeus" contributed to religious periodicals." - Rhodenizer. "This little volume is a compilation of articles which, in the form of letters or sermonettes, appeared in the "Religious Intelligencer "or in the daily press of the city of St. John. They were written at odd moments and often very hastily, as a diversion and partial recreation trom a busy ministry, and they lack the continuity and, at times, the finish one wouldexpect m material prepared with the intention of publication in permanent form. But they will be welcomed and treasured very highly by those whose rare privilege it was to sharehis iendship and fellowship, and by the large number of people throughout this province who have been benefited and blessed through his ministry. Andthere is a charm about them that will appeal to a wider circle of readers. " from Keirstead's introduction.
