Orme and Ivimey: Publications of Kiffin Biography
In the Baptist Magazine (1832, pg. 264), a notice was posted regarding the appearance of two biographies of William Kiffin.
The article notes how the work, Remarkable Passages in the Life of Kiffin (1823), by William Orme (1787–1830) appeared at the same time which Joseph Ivimey's(1773-1834) biography of Kiffin was ready to go to press. Ivimey waited 9 years with the finished manuscript in hand before publishing it in 1833, shortly before his death in February, 1834.
