Kent's Rev. Herbert Palmer (B.D.) was raised from infancy by his godly father Sir Thomas Palmer and his wife. His parents carefully trained him "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." Being early impressed with religious thoughts, he asked his mother for information about God when but four or five years old. Sanctified from his mother's womb, from babyhood he was well acquainted with the Holy Scriptures "which are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith in Jesus Christ." Jeremiah 1:5; Ephesians 6:4 & Second Timothy 3:15.
When himself an adult, after his ordination to the Ministry of the Word he carefully catechized the people of his charge both publicly and privately. He himself was constant in family worship, twice every day. For he had firmly resolved that he and his house would serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15.
