ProvenanceThe Irish Papers Box 18 contains several letters to John Bramhall, so this sermon could have been enclosed with a letter. Bramhall's surviving papers are mainly within the Hastings manuscripts as his eldest daughter, Isabel, married Sir James Graham, son of the earl of Menteith. Isabelle and Graham's son Francis Rawdon (later Rowdon-Hastings) would go on to be second earl of Moira and first marquess of Hastings.
AcquisitionThe Hastings Collection was purchased by the Huntington Library in January 1927 from Maggs Bros. of London, who had acquired the papers from Edith Maud Abney-Hastings, Countess of Loudoun.
