Bettle, Samuel (1)

Bettle, Samuel (1), a minister of the Society ῥof Friends, was born in Philadelphia in 1810. In early manhood he embarked in mercantile pursuits. After his conversion he consecrated himself to the service of his Lord, and was recognized as a minister of the Gospel. "His ministry was clear, eloquent, thoughtful, weighty, and, above all, accompanied with unction." In the discharge of his duties he visited many yearly meetings in the United States. He labored also among the Indians and freedmen, and his advice was sought and followed by the heads of government at Washington. Among the ministers of his denomination he took a deservedly high rank. He died at his home near Philadelphia, Jan. 28, 1880. See Friends' Review, 33:616. (J. C. S.)
