Excerpt from Ten Years in Texas
But the issues raised before the Houston Convention, and, which had been settled two or three times before, seem ed to be finally settled in that Convention, when, after a long and painful struggle, the two parties voted on the report covering the ground of contention, and voted with absolute unanimity. That gave the idea that a little tenderness might heal old wounds, and that the Baptists of Texas might really be brought together, if only tact were used.
Being elected Superintendent of Missions by the Board not long after that Convention and earnestly solicited by leaders on both sides of the differences to accept the work, I finally did accept, and did it with the idea that there would not be much trouble in ending all contentions, and launching out for a great campaign of progress. Some of the brethren did not think so, and it took the writer some months to learn as much as some of the other brethren knew when he came. We were really in for a great struggle to be carried on by stages, which, in its outcome, was to fuse and unify Texas Baptists. We were to come to higher ground and come through tribulation. The very situation called for it.
