Bidwell, Barnabas:

AN ORATION ON THE DEATH OF ROGER NEWTON, JUN'R, A. M. A TUTOR OF YALE-COLLEGE, IN NEW-HAVEN, WHO DIED AUGUST 10TH, 1789, AETAT. 26; PRONOUNCED IN THE COLLEGE-CHAPEL, SEPTEMBER 2ND. BY...A TUTOR OF SAID COLLEGE. PUBLISHED AT THE REQUEST OF MR. NEWTON'S PUPILS.

Thomas and Samuel Green, New Haven: [1789?] 23, [1 blank] pp. Bound in modern card boards and half cloth, with gum label at base of front cover. Very Good. A scarce Oration, mourning the loss of Newton, a young man of "strong and capacious understanding, a judgment sound and mature beyond his years, a rich, though not a flighty imagination." Moreover, "he was endowed by the author of his existence with a correct natural taste," and "his disposition overflowed with benevolence." Newton had intended to practice law "in his native state of Massachusetts." Something like pneumonia killed him. Evans 21691. Trumbull 357. NAIP w021524.
