Excerpt from A Saint of the Southern Church: Memoir of the Right Reverend Nicholas Hamner Cobbs, Doctor of Divinity, First Bishop of the Diocese of Alabama, With Notices of Some of His Contemporaries

The writer's cue may be found in the following passage from Bishop R. H. Wilmer's first address to his convention, in the year 1863:

'I cannot but express the regret that no one of Bishop Cobbs' most intimate friends has yet announced the preparation of his memoirs. It would be sad indeed to think that the record of such a life should be lost to the church.

'I have no fear that those who knew him personally will ever forget him while memory lasts; but we would fain see a faithful portraiture of the first bishop of the diocese handed down to future generations, that our children might know and love him for his virtues and his works' sake.'

A whole generation has passed, and the want yet remains unsupplied. It demands fulfillment, for the preservation of a beautiful memory now fast fading away, for the sake of the diocese of which he was the first bishop, of the university that he helped to found; it is necessary to amplify and perfect the picture of church life and conditions throughout this whole region and therefore in the country at large in the period between the War of 1812 and the civil war. Hence it comes about that the task is at last essayed by a stranger of another generation.
