FOREWORD

There is no Annual General Meeting lecture in the Journal this year!

Dorothy Graham's presentation, Methodist Women Preachers in the British Isles, at the 1998 AGM was recognised as deserving of a stand-alone publication, released recently. In the event another paper on the Preachers theme was added: William Hough, Catechist and Lay Preacher, A New Zealand Pioneer.

Nevertheless, we have an interesting mix in Journal 1999, including: two major articles based on MA theses; links with Samuel Ironside and John Whiteley; a summary of the two week lightning tour in the South Island by Doug Burt and Dave Roberts; a report on the recent West Franklin celebrations which includes a review of Audrey Bruce's book, In the Trail of the Missionary, a first-hand account of a pioneer woman's childhood experiences in this country; Methodists of note listed in the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography 1998; an obituary for Roger Nuttall, recently deceased; a correction of fact to a statement in Journal 1998 (C.F. Skinner did not die in infancy but survived to live a noteworthy life of public service) and anniversaries of note for 2000.

Of particular importance is the request made by Doug and Dave for local follow-up of the contacts made during their epic excursion in search of surviving buildings and memorials in the South Island. They plan to continue this exercise and need local participation to achieve something approaching full coverage of all the sites.

Thank you to all the authors and contributors of information and illustrations who have made the compilation of Journal 1999 possible.
