The following is a statement from B.R. Hall referring to a trip to Jackson County, Al. in the summer and fall of 1826: "I went from there to another camp-meeting, higher up in the same county, where I preached the same doctrine, and baptized a number of persons for remission, among whom was Jas. C. Anderson, now a very able and prominent preacher in Tennessee. The following is his own statement of the matter: 'I was immersed by (B.F. Hall,) together with many others, on the 15 day of September, 1825 or 1826, in the State of Alabama, Jackson county, in Jones' Creek. At the time he preached faith, repentance and baptism for remission of sins, but not so fully as it is now preached." ---Millennial Harbinger, Vol. VII, No. 11, Nov. 1843, 514.)
