Manuscript--A Clever roman à clé in the Style of the O.T. re a Church in Philadelphia, circa 1810 [Methodist? Episcopal?] 1810 Paper covered boards Good Manuscript book 16.8 x 19.9cm. Philadelphia, Pa. 
ANONYMOUS. The Book of the Times or a History of the War. Understandest thou what thou readest? Philip. How can I except some men should guide me? Eunuch. A e i o u l m n r. Manuscript, one volume, 44 pages [Philadelphia area, circa 1810?] 16.8 x 19.9cm. $400.00 This is an exceedingly clever roman à clé done in the style of the Old Testament scripture. Divided into three "books" of multiple chapters, it documents the turbulent differences within a religious community, apparently in Philadelphia or the area. The volume contains first names only. When person of the same name are mentioned, the anonymous author might write "William surnamed P," "William surnamed N," and "Henry F." on occasion. The text commences with the difficulties of Henry, an elder who opposed the church leadership's plans to renovate their sanctuary and in the process sell commercial space on the cellar floors. Led by Samuel, the meeting clerk (or "Scribe" as the writer has it, Henry was forced out after being accused of adultery. To prove the accusation of his critics "bort forth an Harlot, who testified that Henry was the Father of one of her two Children." This escalates rather than calms the situation. Further disputes arise, power struggles flare, personalities clash, and a minute-book with key document is mysteriously mutilated. All seems to culminate in arguments over control of the church's "Chartered Fund," that is to say its endowment. There are references to ministering to prisoners and Africans and also to "a new sect who call themselves The Society of Hospitality." A delightful and cleverly-done manuscript. The manuscript is bound thick card cover with Pennsylvania-Dutch style tulip decorated paper on the outside. Written over the decorated paper on the back cover & upside down is "Philadelphia Pennsylvania William Book." The spine is covered with a blue piece of printed paper that reads "Controller's Copy Book. No. 3. Published by J.B. Smith & Co., Booksellers and Stationers, No. 207 Market St., above 5th, Phila." Blue paper chipped and split along lower half of spine, tulip paper rubbed through the decoration in places, contents with moderate to heavy foxing--a dark stain in top inside of most pages, several pages loose or almost loose but not lacking any pages. Written in a very legible longhand. 12cm tear in last leaf but no loss of text.

George Burgess (1809-1866) Episcopal bishop. Raised in the Congregational church, study led him to the Episcopal Church. After several years studying theology under the guidance of his rector he spent 3 years attending lectures at the Universities of Berlin, Bonn, and Gottingen. On his return he was ordained deacon and then advanced to the priesthood Nov. 2, 1834. He was elected the first bishop of Maine in 1847. "His diocese was weak, but by his steadfast devotion and saintly life, by his unwearying energy and convincing preaching, he had the satisfaction of seeing it develop and increase in influence under his guidance. Bishop Burgess possessed a well-informed mind, and the ability to give clear expression to his thoughts. As a result he wrote much..."--Dict. Amer. Biography III:276.

In this pamphlet Burgess gave advice to seminarians: "You have been educated to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ to men as men, to wise and foolish, to one and all. Cease not, then, to be students, but strive more and more to be men, with all the sympathies, the interests, the enterprize, of living, feeling, stirring men; shaking off all stiffness of the school, all habits of abstraction, all excessive refinement, all the vanity of superior knowledge, and in the love of Christ, holding yourselves as ready, with all manliness, for any post or toil, as, under far lower motives, is the soldier, the warrior, the physician, the pioneer settler, or the hard-handed labour."

The former supposes the baptized individual to be incapable of religious or spiritual action, until he is, at some period of life, early or late, awakened, impressed and changed by the Holy Spirit; with a view to whose action upon him it is necessary that human means should be used to arrest, disturb and excite his mind on the subject of his salvation. Prior to this period he is in sin and apathy. At this period he is converted. Before this period he is incapable of any religious action acceptable to God... The latter--the system of training--supposes the individual to be capable of religious exercises from the earliest period of intelligence, not by nature, but in virtue of imparted grace pledged by covenant to him; by means of which, as he is empowered for moral action, so moral action i
