William Ellis (1658-1709) was convinced of the blessed Truth at eighteen years of age when working as an apprentice to a linen-weaver in Skipton, England. Both he and his wife Alice became faithful laborers in the harvest of the Lord, giving themselves to spend and be spent in Truth’s service, in feeding and overseeing the flock of Christ in England and abroad. The letters and papers contained in this memoir plainly manifest the uncompromising submission to the Spirit of Truth which so characterized the early Society of Friends. The lives and gospel labors of this pious couple shined with true Christian humility, honesty, and single-hearted devotion, and with a genuine concern that all the Lord’s people walk in the beauty of holiness under government of the Spirit.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
