4 Some of the Philadelphia Quakers objected to Thompson because he made such long prayers (Ms. Mar. 27, 1835, Henry Benson to G. W. Benson). In his youth he was employed as one of the under-secretaries in the London Methodist Mission House, and used to hold evening meetings in some of the poor districts of the metropolis, and go about on Sundays distributing Bibles and tracts (May's “Recollections,” p. 109). He is often styled ‘Rev.’ in the reports of his meetings in America (Lib. 5.1; 6.8; and 2d Annual Report of the American A. S. Society, p. 47).
