"The text, taken by Samuel Ruggles (Dibble) from the book of Genesis, contains 12 numbered sections of questions and answers. It was issued with printed wrappers; the title repeats on the front, and the back wrapper has a caption title "No Ka Hele Ana i ke Kula Sabati," followed by eight numbered paragraphs. The printed minutes of the June 1833 General Meeting record an edition of 10,000 copies."--David W. Forbes: Hawaiian National Bibliography 1780-1900, Vol. II, item #815.

The Hawaiian mission of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) had its beginnings in 1820 when a company of missionaries sailed for Hawaii, lead by Hiram Bingham. "With abundat courage and an inflexible will, yet cheerful, good-natured, and highly capable, he was from the beginning the natural leader of the mission (caricatured as Abner Hale in James Michner's novel Hawaii).... The phenomenal success of the mission due in considerable part to the role he and his wife, Sybil, played in winning the strong allegiance of the principal chiefs. [She] did much to bring the powerful regent Kaahumanu and others to the Christian faith. Hiram, too, won the allegiance of Hawaiians, but his forcefulness not only brought him into conflict with foreigners who resented missionary interference with their commercial, political, and sexual interests, but also irritated collegues... He helped create a writing system for the Hawaiian language, translated several books of the Bible, and produced Elementary Lessons, First Book for Children, Scripture Catechism, First Teacher, and a hymn and tune book."--Gerald H. Anderson: Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions, (c1998) p.63-64. Samuel Ruggles and his wife Nancy sailed with the first company of missionaries to Hawaii which also included the printer Elias Loomis. They spent 15 years at the Hawaiian Island working as teachers. Ruggles also translated the Catechism on Genesis, with some help from Sheldon Dibble--another missionary who arrived in the fourth company of missionaries, as a 22 year old, as a 22 year old.

At present, although there are several respectable religious magazines in our country, none of them can be made to accomplish all the beneficial ends which the interest of the church now require.

1832 pamphlet 19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON-PEIRCE 
ANONYMOUS. A Plain Guide to Baptism; Being a Short Treatise upon Subjects and Mode. By a Servant of Jesus Christ, Who has often been invited to preach to Baptist Churches, but always debarred from their communion!!! [8 lines scripture] Boston: Press of Peirce & Parker, No. 9, Cornhill. 1832. Duodecimo.

Pamphlet in probably later plain paper wrapper, untrimmed with page edges tattered, light to medium foxing, small tear in inside margin of title, 3cm tear in text of one leaf repaired with archival rag paper. Collation: 1-26, 32. Pagination: (1) title, (1) copyright, [3]-28pp. OCLC locates: Emory U Pitts; U Ill.; S Bapt Theol Sem; New Orleans Bapt Theol Sem; Amer Antq Soc; Kent State U; Presb Hist Soc. Amer. Imprints 32-14283 adds Cong. Libr Boston; Zion Research Libr Brookline; Brown U.

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.

5 ANONYMOUS. Review of Dr. Dana's Remonstrance Respecting Andover Theological Sem
19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON-CROCKER & BREWSTER 
ANONYMOUS. A Review of Dr. Dana's Remonstrance Respecting Andover Theological Seminary. By a Layman. Boston: Press of Crocker and Brewster, 47, Washington-street. 1853. Octavo. Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched, light to medium foxing. Collation: 1-54. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-40pp. The pamphlet was written in response to one written by Daniel Dana in 1849: "A Remonstrance Addressed to the Trustees of Phillips Academy, on the state of the Theological Seminary under their care." It concerns primarily the chair of Christian Theology held by Edwards Amasa Park and whether doctrinally and instructionally it met the conditions of the founders set down in the constitution of the institution. Dana decried the fact that Andover Seminary candidates for a license to preach often "failed in some essential points; particularly that of native depravity."(p.6). The author asserts that because neither the seminary nor the ministers have followed up on Dana's concerns, it is left to the laymen and hence his pamphlet. The anonymous author sides with Dana in considering Dr. Parks views as inconsistent with the constitution of Andover. An appendix (pp.33-40) includes: Note A: The Covenant with Adam, and Original Sin; Note B: Atonement; Note C: Regeneration; Note D: Human Ability. These notes treat specifically on Dr. Park's views on the delineated subjects.

9 BUSHNELL, HORACE. Barbarism the first Danger. A Discourse for Home Missions
1847 Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched with new linen thread, light foxing. pamphlet Octavo New-York: Printed for the American Home Missionary Society, by William Osborn, Spruce-Street, Corner of Nassau. 
BUSHNELL, HORACE. Barbarism the first Danger. A Discourse for Home Missions, by Horace Bushnell, Pastor of the North Church, Hartford, Conn. New-York: Printed for the American Home Missionary Society, by William Osborn, Spruce-Street, Corner of Nassau. 1847. Octavo.

Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched with new linen thread, light foxing. Collation: 1-28. Pagination: (1) title, (1) author's note, [3]-32pp.

Horace Bushnell (1802-1876) American Congregational divine, pastor of North Church of Hartford, Conn. 1833-1859. Bushnell was a pioneer of liberal theology in New England. There were repeated formal accusations of heresy brought against him, but his church stood by him and he was not tried. We offer Bushnell's sermon on Judges xvii.13, "Then said Micha, now know I that the Lord will do me good, seeing I have a Levite to my priest." "A very unimportant chapter of biography is here preserved to us--save that if we take the subject as an exponent of his times, we shall find a serious and mementous truth illustrated in his conduct. He lives in the time of the Judges, that is the emigrant age of Israel. It is the time, when his nation are passing through the struggles incident to a new settlement, a time therefore of decline towards barbarism. Public security is gone. The people have run wild. Forms are more sacred than duties, and a costly church furniture is taken as synonymous with a godly life. It is at just such times that we are to look for the union of great crimes and scrupulous acts of devotion..."

New York: Printed for the Association of Fairfield West, by Baker, Godwin & Company, Tribune Buildings, opposite City Hall. 1852. Octavo.

Pamphlet in modern acid-free heavy gray paper wrapper with printed title label on spine, side-stitched, light to medium foxing, small blue ballpoint scribble on title page.

In 1849 the Hartford Central Association (of which Horace Bushnell was a member) found that his book, God in Christ "that whatever errors the book may contain, it furnishes no sufficient ground for instituting a judicial process with him." The Fairfield West Assoc. addressed a remonstrance to the Hartford Central Assoc. in Jan 1850; in March, Hartford Central declined to reverse their proceeding or reconsider. There were further written proceeding between the parties. The Appeal ends with the following paragraph: "Since the date of our last letter to the Hartford Central Association, Dr. Bushnell has published another book, entitled "Christ in Theology," being the answer of the author before the Hartford Central Association of Ministers, October, 1849, for the doctrines of the book entitled "God in Christ." The relation which this second book bears to the first and to the decision of the Hartford Central Association, against which we remonstrated, has led us to examine it with considerable care. We do not find that he has, in this second book, changed his positions in any important particular, or so explained their meaning as to make them more consistent with the truth of the Gospel. The same system of error which is contained in the first book, is also contained in the second. To prove this, we present to

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) Congregational clergyman, theologian, philosopher. "During the rise of enthusiasm in New England in the Great Awakening, Edwards fused Calvinism, Plotonism, Pietism, and Lockean empiricism into a system of religious philosophy. In it the absolute sovereignty of God beomes an 'inward, sweet delight,' not through reason but by an additional or sixth sense... The claim of Edwards to be the founder of the New England 'school' of 'Reformed Divinity' is based upon three works... Freedom of the Will... The Great Christian Doctrine of Original Sin Defended...and A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections... These works, with some other writings, reveal Edwards the philosopher, Lockean pyschologist, and empirical thinker, who used the new philosophy to bolster traditional theology, to become 'the eighteenth-century philosophical apologist for the truths of the Christian religion'"--Nelson R. Burr: A Critical Bibliography of Religion in America, 2 vols. 1961, pp979-980.

Re The Treatise Concering Religious Affections, we quote the Dict of Amer. Biography: "Since, however, in Connecticut and central Massachusetts, revivals resulted in social cleavage and church divisions with partisan conflict between exponents of religion as violent emotion and those who regarded it as rectitude of conduct, Edwards needed to intervene further by a series of sermons in 1742-43 which became A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections, published in 1746. This is the supreme expression of Edwards's psychology of religion. The mind has two activities: understanding, and inclination or will, the latter having inseparable aspects of affections and choice, since man wills what he loves. True religion involves both activities. While in great part it consists in holy affections, there must also be light to the understanding implied in all reasonable affections. At great length he cautions against reliance on mere intensity of feeling, on its effect on the body, on fervor of speech, or on a confidence in righteousness which may be only exalted natural feeling..."--Dict. Amer. Biography, VI:34.

Jonathan Edwards, 1703-1758, "the first great philosophic intelligence in American history... He created the first great religious revival of modern times; intensified the power of Calvinism to stem the tide of the world's new thought; fused the iron logic of that system with a rapture of mystic communion; and initiated a New England Theology as a new chapter in the history of doctrine"--Francis A. Christie in Dictionary of American Biography, VI:36-37.

Regarding his History of Redemption: "Yet another aspect of Edwards' thought, never fully expressed before his early death, is detailed in his projected A History of the Work of Redemption... edited by John Erskine, which is believed to constitute Edwards' claim to real originality: a system of theology in the form of a history of God's work of redemption."--Nelson R. Burr: A Critical Bibliography of Religion in America, pp.982-83.
