DescriptionThe full title of this sermon is as follows: "A Sermon Preached at ye Funerall of our Deceased Friend, and Neighbour, Mr Longlands, att Walcott, By Mr. Brocklesby, January the 30. 1684/5". The sermon begins as follows: "The Heart of the Righteous is a noble Heart, A wise mans Heart diserneth both Time and Judgment, Eccl. 8.5, many People will Lament & mourn, that are not acquainted with grief [...]". The doctrines are listed from the first leaf (verso). The last leaf (verso) is dedicated to the brief eulogy of the deceased. According to the preacher, Mr Longlands was "a loveing Father to his Children", "a Compassionate master to his seruants", "one that Ruled well his Family", and "a constant frequenter of the wayes & worship and ordinance of God". His profession, if he had one, is never mentioned. Written in a very neat italic hand, with catchwords at the bottom of every page. There is no marginalia.
