This is a reprint of his autobiography, with lengthy introduction, and closing chapters of his public ministry, last sickness, and death, edited by Elder James White.
That portion of this book which the reader will find wonderfully interesting and instructive, is that which pertains to a sea-faring life of twenty-five years, from the cabin boy, up to master and owner. Here will be found the record of fearful dangers and adventures. And right here, associated more or less with all that is evil, Captain Bates became a most thorough reformer and a devoted Christian. The closing chapters relate to his labors in the ministry, and in moral reforms, and the triumphant close of his long and useful life. This book should be in every family library. Every youth should read it.
Elder Bate's autobiography first appeared in the Youth's Instructor.
