1. A SERMON, PREACHED IN NEW-YORK, JULY 4TH, 1793. BEING THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF AMERICA: AT THE REQUEST OF THE TAMMANY SOCIETY, OR COLUMBIAN ORDER. BY...ONE OF THE MINISTERS OF THE UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCHES, IN THE CITY OF NEW-YORK. New York: Greenleaf. 1793. 38, [2 blanks] pp. Very Good. On the final blank is Miller's written notes. The Tammany Society should "stand as guardians over those inestimable rights and privileges, which have been so dearly purchased." Christianity teaches the equality of all. Slavery will "be forever banished from a nation" which regards everyone "as subject to the same great laws, and amenable to the same awful tribunal, in the end."
2. A DISCOURSE DELIVERED IN THE NEW PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, NEW-YORK: BEFORE THE GRAND LODGE OF THE STATE OF NEW-YORK, AND THE BRETHREN OF THAT FRATERNITY, ASSEMBLED IN GENERAL COMMUNICATION, ON THE FESTIVAL OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST, JUNE 24TH, 1795. New York: Childs. 1795. 32pp. Light to moderate foxing, Good+. Verso of title page has Miller's notes laid in, explaining another of his discourses should have been inserted. His Discourse says Masonic principles "are such as the blessed Redeemer perpetually dropped from his hallowed lips."
3. A SERMON, DELIVERED FEBRUARY 5, 1799; RECOMMENDED BY THE CLERGY OF THE CITY OF NEW-YORK, TO BE OBSERVED AS A DAY OF THANKSGIVING, HUMILIATION, AND PRAYER, ON ACCOUNT OF THE REMOVAL OF A MALIGNANT AND MORTAL DISEASE, WHICH HAD PREVAILED IN THE CITY SOME TIME BEFORE.

4. A SERMON, DELIVERED MAY 9, 1798, RECOMMENDED, BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, TO BE OBSERVED AS A DAY OF GENERAL HUMILIATION, FASTING, AND PRAYER. New-York: Swords. 1798. 46, [2 blanks] pp. Very Good. The "events in Europe" are characterized by atheism, profaneness, a "selfish and mercenary spirit." Miller warns against the "curse" of "European connections."
5. A SERMON, DELIVERED DECEMBER 29, 1799; OCCASIONED BY THE DEATH OF GENERAL GEORGE WASHINGTON, LATE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE AMERICAN ARMIES. New York: Swords. 1800. 39, [1 blank] pp, with the half title. Light toning, Very Good. Evidently Miller's sermon was similar to one delivered by Dr. Erskine of Edinburgh, because an 'Advertisement' on the verso of the title page denies that "such coincidence" was the result of plagiarism.
