Additional Material
Print Editions / WitnessesA sermon by Allestree on this text was printed under the title The Desire of All Men: A Sermon Preach'd at Daventry in Northamptonshire, March 5, 1694/5, (Being the Day of the Interment of Our Late Most Gracious Queen), Before the Bayliff and Burgesses of the Said Corporation of Daventry and Other Gentlemen of the Country, and Published at Their Request (London, 1694/5).
DescriptionThis section of the volume comprises pieces on death and resurrection, headed "Some Funeral Pieces Upon the same Text" and "Of the Resurrection." The text from Numbers in this record governs the Funeral Piece, but the notes on the Resurrection are not connected with a particular text. They are amalgamated into one record because they are all fragments that Allestree could paste into a sermon on death / resurrection. All of these are crossed through with a large X. According to the printed version, the sermon was preached on the occasion of the interment of Queen Mary II.
