Beckwith's 'Advertisement' explains "Why any body in Connecticut, should undertake an answer to Mr. Green, or intermeddle with a controversy subsisting at such a distance from them? To which the answer is, Mr. Green's books coming amongst us, caused debates and perplexities among some of our people." He warns of impending "heathenism" and desertion of the church, and disputes Green's denial "that there are any qualifications short of saving grace, that can give any person a lawful right to communicate in special ordinances."
