The first persons who attached themselves to him were a few illiterate fishermen of Galilee, and so far from disdaining their society and friendship, he received them graciously, taught them with unwearied patience, put up with all their ignorance, and prejudices, and stupidity, and perverseness, and after he had opened their understandings to know, and inclined their hearts to love the truth, left them behind him on the earth as his Apostles, and by their instrumentality established Christianity in the world.

P.S. Does anyone know of a surviving portrait or photograph of William Nixon. According to Wikipedia, he died in 1900, aged 96. I find it odd that someone that prominent in the Free Church could have survived that long without having their photograph taken at some point.
