Chauncy, Chales [sic]:

A SERMON PREACHED MAY 6, 1767. AT THE ORDINATION OF THE REVEREND SIMEON HOWARD, M.A. TO THE PASTORAL CARE OF THE WEST-CHURCH IN BOSTON. TO WHICH THE CHARGE, AND RIGHT-HAND OF FELLOWSHIP, DELIVERED UPON THE SAME OCCASION, ARE ADDED. BY... A PASTOR OF THE FRIST-CHURCH [sic]IN BOSTON.

Printed by R. Draper, Edes & Gill, and T. & J. Fleet, Boston: 1767 Half title, 55, [1 blank] pp. Some spotting and light foxing, disbound with some loosening, Good to Good+. By the foremost Boston clergyman of his time, friend of American religious institutions and the American Revolution, and foe of the Great Awakening. Here he warns against excessive religious excitement, scolding parishioners who "have no relish for discourses, unless adapted to excite their passions. If these are put in motion, they applaud the preacher, and imagine they have gained spiritual profit. Whereas, if he so opens his subject, by good reasoning, as to set it before their understandings in a clear and strong point of view, it is in their account, a poor insipid business." Evans 10580.
