A SERMON, PREACHED AT DANBURY, SEPTEMBER 19TH, 1770, AT THE ORDINATION OF THE REVEREND EBENEZER BALDWIN.

President Daggett's Sermon is from Galatians IV. 19, a discussion of the Apostle Paul, who "had been the principal instrument in spreading and planting the Christian Religion in Galatia, and the adjacent parts of Asia Minor." Paul's "excellent and animated epistle to the Galatians" responded to "false teachers, who meanly endeavoured to sink his character, and destroy his influence with these converts to Christianity."
The Charge to Reverend Baldwin is given by Reverend Elijah Sill of New-Fairfield; and the Right Hand of Fellowship by Reverend Joseph Peck, also of New-Fairfield.
