Published at the Desire of the Hearers. {2 lines quotes] Hartford: Printed by Lincoln & Gleason. 1805. Octavo. Pamphlet with untrimmed page edges, half title soiled and chipped, light to medium foxing. 19pp. Amer. Bibliog. #8287. James Dana (1735-1812) Congregational clergyman. Pastor of the church in Wallingford, Conn., 1758-1789, and was installed as pastor of the First Church, New Haven in 1789. "In the controversy between the 'Old Divinity" and the "New" he became a strong defender of the former as against the opinions of Drs. Bellamy, Hopkins, West, and Edwards,,, Captivated by the preaching of Moses Stuart who supplied the church during the pastor's illness, the Society voted in 1805 that 'Dr. Dana retire from his pastoral labors.' In December he was dismissed by council, but continued to reside in New Haven until his death... The Univ. of Edinburgh honored him with the degree of D.D. in 1768."--Dict. Amer. Biography V:54. We offer Dana's sermon on the text of II Peter, III.3,4: "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
