2 (Armstrong, Samuel T.) RESULT OF AN ECCLESIASTICAL COUNCIL, HELD AT SANDWICH, MAY 20, 1817
Boston: Published by Samuel T. Armstrong, 1817. 1817. Good Signed
Boston: Published by Samuel T. Armstrong, 1817.. 1817.. Good. - sc - Octavo, contemporary homemade tan paper stitched wraps. The edges of the covers are chipped and creased with the first word of the title penned in an early hand at the top of the front cover. 7 pages, illustrated with the publisher's wood engraved pictorial advertisement. A previous early owner's name is penned inside the front cover. The pages are creased with some dampstaining and a couple of ink markings. Good.

From the library of the Reverend Noble Everett (1747-1819), signed by him along the inner edge of the title page. The Rev. Noble Everett is included in the list of those present at this Council.

Born in Woodbury, CT in 1747, Noble Everett graduated from Yale in 1772 and served as Chaplain in the Revolutionary Army. He was present at the Battle of White Plains. He was ordained in Wareham, Massachusetts in October of 1782. Noble Everett, together with the Reverend Jonathan Burr, organized the South Congregational Church or Third Church of Barnstable. He instructed the Bristol lawyer Timothy G. Coffin for college. The name "Coffin", preceded by an illegible first name or word, is written on the inside of the front wrap.

[Shaw & Shoemaker 42051].

This pamphlet is illustrated with the publisher Samuel Armstrong's attractive pictorial ad, which depicts 3 domed pillars, each supported by a Holy Bible bracing shelves of books between them. Lists of religious figures and authors, including Luther, Calvin, Watts, and Mather, among many others, are printed in rows on the columns. Banners advertising the publisher "Samuel T. Armstrong, Printer and Bookseller" are held aloft by domes topping the pillars. Text advertising the work "The Platform of Church Discipline" is printed below.

The pamphlet begins with the "Results" of its meeting "By letters missive from the Congregational Church of Christ in Sandwich, under the pastoral care of the Rev. Jonathan Burr, and ecclesiastical council was convened, at the house of William Fessenden, Esq. in said town, on Tuesday 20th May, 1817; and continued by adjournments until Friday the 23d...." Listed among those present were the Rev. Joseph Lyman, representing Hatfield; the Rev. Noble Everett and Deacon Barnabus Bates, representing Wareham; the Rev. Thomas Andros and Brother Samuel Toby, representing Berkley; the Rev. Daniel Dana and Brother Benjamin Wyatt, representing Newburyport; the Rev. Samuel Worcester and Brother Thomas Needham, representing Salem; and the Rev. Oliver Cobb and Deacon Jesse Haskell, representing Rochester. The pamphlet makes mention that Reverend Burr (i.e. Jonathan Burr, 1757-1842) had sent the missive offering mutual council to the Church of the Rev. Goodwin (Ezra Shaw Goodwin, 1787-1833). The offer, rebuffed by Rev. Goodwin, concerns the council as there seems to be a conflict over who is the legitimate first or ancient Congregational Church in Sandwich. Dust jacket present.

The head and tail of the spine are chipped. 512 pages; and 158 pages plus an errata leaf. The pages are toned with foxing to the endpapers and to the first and last few leaves. There are occasional spots of foxing or browning. There is a hole through pages 73/74 of the second work, with very slight loss of text. The contents of both works are otherwise complete and this volume is well-worth rebinding.

From the collection of John Ferris Gilpin, with his armorial bookplate on the front pastedown and his signature penned at the top of the first page of the second book.

The first work "Letters of Paul and Amicus" was anonymously written by the Quaker Benjamin Ferris (1780-1867), one of Delaware's earliest literary figures. Under the pseudonym of Amicus, he first published his controversial exchange of letters with the reverend Eliphalet Wheeler Gilbert (1793-1853) in the periodical the "Christian Repository". Ferris was also the author of the "History of the Original Settlements on the Delaware".

"It may be proper to inform the Reader, that this interesting discussion commenced so far back as the early part of 1821, with an Essay over the signature of 'PAUL,' (in the Christian Repository,) charging the Society of Friends with holding doctrines and practices inimical to the principles of the Gospel, as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. These charges were ably met by another writer over the signature of 'AMICUS.' Seldom have the productions of anonymous writers excited a more lively interest than have these of 'Paul' and 'Amicus,' especially among Presbyterians and Friends...." - Quoted from the "Advertisement" which serves as a preface to the work.

Goaded by "Paul", "Amicus" discusses all aspects of the Society of Friends, known as Quakers. The work offers a vivid portrait of the "Old School" Quakerism.

The second work, "Truth Advocated: In Letters Addressed to the Presbyterians" anonymously written by William Gibbons (1781-1845) is a Quaker's reply to an attack on the Society of Friends by a Presbyterian and includes a counter attack upon Presbyterians. Indeed, it was written as an additional response to "Paul's" exchange of letters with "Amicus".

As described in the Author's "Apology" which serves as a preface to the work "In the Christian Repository, a paper published in Wilmington, Delaware, a writer under the signature of PAUL, has attacked the religious society of Friends. He has been answered by a member of that society, under the title of AMICUS. After what has been done in our defence, it would seem to be a work of supererogation to add any thing further. But the reader, if he has perused those publications, will perceive that I have here replied to charges, which AMICUS from their multiplicity had been obliged to pass over in silence...."

"Though a physician, Gibbons is best remembered for his contributions to the the Quaker reformation. ... In 1821, Gibbons wrote a series of letters under the name 'Vindex,' zealously rebuffing attacks on Quakerism by a Presbyterian clergyman. The letters, published as 'Truth Vindicated,' became known as one of the clearest expositions of Quaker doctrine. Shortly thereafter, Gibbons secretly assisted another Quaker reformer, Benjamin Ferris ('Amicus'), debate the 'New School' Presbyterian minister Eliphalet Gilbert ('Paul') in the pages of 'Christian Repository'. Gilbert accused the Quakers of 'overturning the whole superstructure of the Gospel,' particularly regarding their view on the divinity of Christ...." - John Shook, editor: "Dictionary of Early American Philosophers".

This second book, "Truth Advocated", is RARE.
