Introductory remarks answer the question that "the reader will be naturally led to inquire," that is, "Is it known whether this Sermon had any particular effect upon the Jews?" Reported here are examples of many conversions-in-progress "under the ministry of Mr. Cooper." Cooper's Preface, expressing his distress for the Jews, "that dear neglected people," explains his hope "that the profits, arising from the sale of it among the Gentiles, will enable me to distribute the copies gratis to the Jews."
NAIP, Rosenbach, and Evans record this as a 1796 imprint. Singerman corrects the obvious error.
