The existence of the Autobiography which is published in the following pages came to my knowledge in the course of a chance conversation with a distant relative of the writer's family. The original manuscript has been carefully preserved, and has been for many years in the possession of Mr. G. H. Carter, of Helston. He received it from his father, the G. Carter mentioned herein, who was a nephew of Harry Carter himself. The memoir of the writer, which will be found in the Wesleyan Methodist Magazine for October 1831, was based upon information supplied by G. Carter partly from the manuscript and partly from his own knowledge. The original is now printed in full for the first time, with the consent of the family.
