DescriptionRuled on top and bottom, in better condition than other contents of this volume. It is unclear whether the sermon is complete: the ink at the end is faded and the writing difficult to construe, but there is a little space left, perhaps indicating that the sermon was finished.

Other NoteAs this commonplace book contains materials written by both of the Ussher brothers, it is difficult to tell whether Ambrose or James was the scribe/preacher/auditor. To reflect this ambiguity, they both have been included in this entry under the designation of "manuscript owner."
