Other NoteDr. Henry Wilkinson's 1654 sermon on the Gunpowder Treason was published in Henry Wilkinson, "Three Decades of Sermons, Lately Preached to the University...In Oxford" (Oxford: T. Robinson, 1660), pp 105-23. The 1654 sermon was preached on Esther 9:27-28, not Rev. 15:3; this makes it makes it unlikely that the sermon in this notebook is that of 1654, but rather of 1653 or 1655.
