“As [a] Baptist and Disciple preacher he was noted for his spread eagle eloquence and ability to get up revival excitements. He had been hurt in youth and it left him with a tendency to epileptic spells. He would often while preaching, especially in revival excitements, have such spells and see visions and swoon, have trances, etc. This tendency caused his preaching to be wild, visionary and extravagant…. His preaching attracted the visionary and fanatical.”

Clark Braden in the Braden-Kelley Debate (1884)
