WESLEYANS AND BAPTISM.
[TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR."]
StE,—The argument from silence is so manifestly precarious
that it is a little surprising to find the Master of Magdalene (Spectator, June 3rd) stumbling into it. Let me therefore
break the silence on behalf of the Wesleyans by quoting their official regulation :—
" If, upon inquiry, it be found that any person, in other respects eligible for membership, has not received Christian baptism, that sacrament shall be administered before the recognition of that person, and, if not otherwise, in connexion with the Recognition Scrvice."
