Thacher, Peter:

THE REST WHICH REMAINETH TO THE PEOPLE OF GOD, AND THE CHARACTER OF SUCH AS SHALL ENJOY IT, SHEWN IN A SERMON PREACHED AT THE NEW NORTH CHURCH IN BOSTON, SEPTEMBER 13, 1778. BEING THE DAY OF THE DEATH OF THEIR EXCELLENT PASTOR ANDREW ELIOT, D.D.

Fleet, Boston: [1778] 40pp, without the half title. Disbound, lightly foxed and worn, else Very Good. Thacher, preaching during the Revolution, describes Eliot's conduct during that conflict, "when the common enemy of America was in possession of this town, and had compelled the inhabitants either to remain under a military government or to go out and leave their effects behind them." Eliot decided, against his personal inclinations, "that it was his duty to suffer affliction with the people of God who remained in town, and in the opinion of many there was no period of his life in which he was more eminently useful...[H]e ministered also to his countrymen who were taken by the enemy and who were confined, amidst sickness and wounds, in prison." FIRST EDITION. Evans 16090.
