Seth C. Rees (1854- ) published a small book The Ideal Pentecostal Church ( Revivalist Office, M.W. Knapp: Cincinnati,Ohio, 1897).  It is an extremely valuable book due to its well defined look at the way church should be defined based on holiness doctrinal aspects.  Of note is the chapter  "The Ideal Pentecostal Church is Without Distinction as to Sex" (pg. 40) bridging the egalitarian nature of the holiness movement from Catherine Booth forward with views out of step with many in the late 1890's.  Also of note, a personal sharing of his experience in being sanctified, 'the pentecostal experience' in the late 1890's within the Holiness movement.
