MANSHIP, Andrew, clergyman, born in Caroline county, Maryland, 23 June, 1824. He left school in 1837, and in 1843 was admitted to the Philadelphia conference of the Methodist Episcopal church. He was made deacon in 1845 and elder in 1847, held various charges, and in 1856 was appointed tract agent of the Philadelphia conference; but in 1863 he was again assigned to regular pastoral work. Since that period he has been engaged in missionary work in Philadelphia. At present (1888) he is an evangelist in that city, his last pastoral connection having terminated in 1879. In 1866-'7 he edited the "Home Missionary and Tract Magazine." He is the author of "Thirteen Years in the Itineracy" (Philadelphia, 18,56, now in its 16th thousand) ; "Cherished Memories" (1859); "Reminiscences from the Saddle-Bags of a Methodist Preacher" (1878); and "History of Gospel-Tents and Experience" (1884). He has compiled "The Patriot's Hymn-Book" (1862) and "National Jewels" (1866), and is at present (1888) writing " Forty Years in the Wilderness," which will be a complete review of his life.
