Other NoteThe dating is confusing. The manuscript was apparently composed in 1690-1691, but the sermons have the date 1703 in the heading. It is possible they were composed and delivered in 1690-1691 and only written out in full in 1703. This manuscript is cited in Ian M. Green, Continuity and Change in Protestant Preaching in Early Modern England (London: Dr Williams's Trust, 2009), p. 37 n. 90.
