DescriptionThere appear to be two comments or sermon fragments here related to Malachi 3. The first, entitled "The great god robbed & spoyled", begins with the commandments, mentions the man robbed between Jerusalem and Jericho, and proceeds to what seems to be a quotation of the Bible text, Malach 3:8 “will a man rob God”? The second, entitled "The Robbers of God", is an incomplete sermon with passages underlined, many bits inserted on pieces of blank paper and correspondence. Catch words appear on the bottom of the last folio, but nothing follows. Perhaps these two texts are part of the same sermon.

Other NoteThis seems to be an autograph sermon by Griffith Williams, but the circumstances surrounding this volume are obscure. Bible text uncertain. Precise date unknown.
