BY MISS AUGUSTA LESLIE.

--------------

    The Newburgh Circuit was, primarily, a part of the East Jersey Circuit, and embraced Southern Orange County, from which it was extended to Northern Orange and Southern Ulster County, as far north as New Paltz. In 1788 what was known as the Flanders (N. J.) Circuit, was cut 3fE from the East Jersey Circuit, and in 1789, the Newburgh Circuit was taken from the Flanders Circuit. It covered Orange and Southern Ulster. In 1809 the New Windsor Circuit was formed; in 1819 the Sullivan Circuit; In 1823, the Bloomingburgh Circuit; in 1825, the New Paltz Circuit. As the churches became established their records were made in their own books-until that time the ordinance of baptism was administered by the Circuit preachers. The record here printed is a valuable contribution to the history of Methodism in this section of country, and is valuable in the genealogical facts which it presents. It has been copied verbatim; the correction of orthographies is left to the reader.
