The anonymous author (probably a Congregationalist) begins: "This treatise is designed to present in a concise form and plain manner, some of the most correct and convincing views of the subject of Baptism... And now understand what the subject in debate is. It is not whether adult believers, who have not received baptism, should be baptized. Nor is it, whether baptism by immersion is an acceptable and valid mode. Upon these points, we have no dispute with our Baptist brethren. But what I shall endeavor to establish is this: That the children of believers should be dedicated to God in baptism; and That baptism by sprinkling is a Scriptural and valid mode."--p.3.

Hubbel Loomis (1775-1872), Congregational and then Baptist clergyman; married Jerusha Burt of Longmeadow, Mass. "He was licensed as a Congregationalist minister in 1801. His first pastorate was in Willington, Conn., where he continued twenty-four years, uniting with his pastoral duties the work of teacher, one of his pupils being Jared Sparks, afterwards so eminent as president of Harvard College... In later years of this pastorate, as a result of earnest study of the scriptures with reference to questions of denominational difference, he became a Baptist, and united with the Baptist church of Willington... In 1829 Mr. Loomis removed to Illinois... settled in Upper Alton, and then founded the seminary which in 1835 became incorporated as Shurtleff College... He was remarkable for conscientiousness; an ardent advocate of human rights, and a warm friend of moral reforms..."--Cathcart: Baptist Ency., p.715.
